Here are just a few of the uplifting stories
that came from our CONFERENCE weekendS:
I had at least one a-ha moment from each speaker. The one that really spoke to me was when Samantha Ettus explained guilt and how no one likes to be the recipient of guilt. I often feel guilty as a mom who works 50-60 hours a week. Even coming to this event, I felt guilty for leaving my 3 year-old who had a 102 degree fever the day before. I have been trying to find a way to get over the guilt, and the light bulb went off for me when Samantha spoke. That is an amazing gift. Thank you for creating an event that could change so many women's lives in a positive way. I can't wait till next year!

This event did not disappoint! Amazing speakers and environment, I felt spoiled! I was reminded about the amazing bond women have, even when strangers. We have a common ground that we long to find in each other as we yearn to feel connected. Thank you to all of the amazing women who played a part in this weekend!

I won tickets to the conference, not knowing exactly what I had entered in to, or what I would have taken away from it. It was a huge blessing in disguise at just the right time. I've been battling depression since October, recently uprooted our family to a new state, no friends, no family and have been struggling to re-establish my identity... I've put myself in the most vulnerable of situations just to make a connection with other moms and have felt failure, not being good enough, judged and isolated from other human connection. I've been in counseling and on anti-depressants and just feeling like all I had become was a complete mess. This weekend gave me courage, strength and empowerment to remain persistent in my journey to become a better me and to keep working to build better relationships. I walked away with knowing I'm not alone and that the right people will enter my life and stay there. I want to tell everyone about what I've learned, I want to rip off the filters and spread truth about the real hardships of work/life balance, motherhood and friendships. For now it's one step and one day at a time. Thank you for all that you women have done and for all that you have given me.
