Yuma's Motherhood Conference 2019

Saturday, February 9, 2019

9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. 

Mothers, too, need professional development in order to become the best version of themselves.  Access to fresh ideas, experiences and insights brings with it a sense of fulfillment in work and a desire to serve family and society joyfully.

This half-day conference brings mothers of all ages together to hear inspiring lectures and share insights on the adventures and challenges of motherhood!  

This year’s keynote speaker is Meghan Cox Gurdon!
