|The Convention Planning Committee: |
Utah women who worked tirelessly to make this event a grand success!
Can you tell that I am proud of this "core group" of wonderful women involved in American Mothers here in Utah who give so much of themselves for my benefit?
I love that American Mothers is a multi-generational organization that has something to offer for women of all ages. There were women in attendance at the Convention from ages 19 to 97! I loved meeting and interacting with the women who are both in and beyond my stage of life who offer their knowledge and wisdom in aiding my passion and pursuits as a mother.
The highlight for me within this weekend were the relationships formed - quickly - with other women who are from diverse geographic, cultural and religious backgrounds, yet all passionate about mothering and willing to share their tender life experiences and knowledge to better assist me in my work as a mom.
I thoroughly enjoyed every interaction with the wonderful women who also, for the coming year, will represent American Mother's throughout 2011 as Young Mothers of the Year for their states. These gals are fabulous and talented, yet approachable and real!

I am so grateful for both my own mom and mother-in-law who attended many of the events in support of their daughter.
