02 Feb Infertility Support Group Updates
Happy Friday! There has been so much going on with Moms in the Making, the faith-based infertility support group I founded and help lead, that I figured it was time for an update! I am so excited to share it all, now where to begin?
Moms in the Making Infertility Support Group
I should probably begin with sharing a little bit about Moms in the Making, especially if you are new to this space. I founded Moms in the Making in 2013, a year after Colby and I were diagnosed with infertility. What began as an in-person Christian support group in my home here in Dallas, TX later expanded to the online audience in 2015. In 2017, Moms in the Making became an official 501c3, non-profit organization and we also hosted our 1st annual conference in October which drew in an audience of attendees from 32 states and 3 countries. Speaking of the conference, how fabulous is this highlight video?
2018 Moms in the Making Conference
I never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but we announced we are hosting another infertility conference on October 12-13 in Dallas, TX. If you are someone who is struggling to get pregnant or stay pregnant or battling infertility, please make sure to save the date.
Also, I will be going live on the Moms in the Making page next Wednesday at 6:15 pm central to share on how you can get a free ticket, so please join me for that. If you missed the first conference recaps you can see part 1 here, part 2 here and the renew her award here.
15 Local Support Groups
Did you know we now have 15 faith-based, Christian infertility support groups across North America? Yes! What began as a in my living room in 2013 has now expanded. We have been very busy working behind the scenes to get these groups growing and I’m excited to announce we now have 15 groups with 15 amazing leaders hosting these groups on a bi-monthly basis. You can learn more about these groups here, but for quick reference, here is an image for where these groups are being held.
Virtual Support Group
Beyond what we do through our online facebook group, we wanted to offer a virtual group, so we are launching an interactive webinar for women all over the world starting on February 12 which will follow the same format as our in-person groups. I would love for you to join us and you can get all details for that here. And, if you aren’t going through infertility, you are welcome to join us too.
Valentine’s Day Encouragement Message
This has been my heart for at least half a year, perhaps longer. I love encouraging people and it’s what really excites me. So I’m going to do just that for Valentine’s Day. If you have a friend who could use some encouragement, you can gift them a pre-recorded message from myself which will include a personalized scripture, a prayer of blessing and encouragement for their current need. You can learn more and buy a gift here.
We as a ministry absolutely love testimonies. We share them every Tuesday on our instagram and facebook accounts. And, we even got 2 testimonies recorded. I hope these videos bless you as much as they have me.
There have been 45 miracle babies that have been born from the ladies who attend the Dallas group that was started in 2013. We are continuing to believe that every woman attending will be a joyful mother of many children!
So that is what has been going on with Moms in the Making. We are always looking for volunteers and sponsors so please do not hesitate to reach out if you are interested in helping.
