A time to remember the longings of our hearts to be bearers of beauty and light and Jesus to our families. If you are a weary mom, a tired mom, a desperate mom, or simply want to be reminded of your high calling, would you consider joining us for one of our four Mom Heart Conferences this year?
My sweet friend September attended her first Mom Heart Conference in Denver last year, where we had a chance to meet for the first time. I’m thrilled to introduce you to her today as a new contributor at Mom Heart! Check out her story and pray about whether God might have you join us this year.
