24 Jun Moms in the Making June 2020 Infertility Support Group Updates
Hello! Twice a year I try to give an update of what is happening within Moms in the Making and today is one of those days!
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. In 2018 we started launching support groups in various cities.
We have now hosted 3 infertility conferences, bringing women to Dallas from all over the US as well as many countries. You can see the highlight videos here:
2020 Moms in the Making Conference
This fall we are hosting our 4th Moms in the Making conference! It is taking place on October 2-3 in Dallas, TX. If you are someone who is facing difficulty as you try to grow your family, please make sure to purchase your ticket because they are on sale now!
I know there are so many reasons that might hold you back from coming: you don’t live in Texas, it’s expensive to travel, you don’t know anyone, etc. But, can I encourage you to take a step of faith to join us? Your yes will bless you in more ways than you could ever imagine and I promise the only regret you will have is if you don’t end up coming to the conference.
In addition to lots of information on the Moms in the Making website, you can see our conference recaps here:
Our 7th Birthday
As mentioned earlier this month, we just celebrated our 7th birthday. For our 7th birthday we decided to host a pineapple challenge in hopes of raising funds and awareness, which has been so fun! If you have’t already head to our Facebook feed to see all the dances that have been shared.
42 Local In-Person Fertility Support Groups
What began as in my living room in 2013 has now expanded to 21 states, amazing, right? We just launched 9 more support groups and we now have 42 support groups across America, Canada and Germany (not pictured).
These groups meet on a bi-monthly basis. You can learn more about these groups here, but for quick reference, below is a map of locations. If you are looking for local support and there is not a group in your city, you can also join our virtual group or a apply to lead an infertility support group in your city!
8 Virtual Support Groups
We now have 8 virtual support groups. 6 of those are Moms in the Making groups, 1 is a Spanish-speaking group and 1 is a Moms Made group, which is for moms of miracles.
You can learn more abut these here!
We as a ministry absolutely love testimonies. We share them every Tuesday on our instagram and facebook accounts. In addition, we have hundred on our website which you can see here! We also have 3 testimonies recorded. I hope these videos bless you as much as they have me.
Please make sure to join the Moms in the Making Facebook group. In this group we share prompts, questions, scriptures, host prayer videos and more. In addition, we give you an opportunity to sign up for prayer partners and card exchanges. You can join here.
So that is what has been going on with Moms in the Making. We are always looking for volunteers, sponsors and donors, so please do not hesitate to reach out if you are interested in helping. In addition you can find out so much on our website, so I encourage you to head there, www.MomsInTheMakingGroup.com. Please know this group is open to you, wherever you are on your journey.
