Power of Moms Retreat Giveaway

"Educate a man and you educate an individual. Educate a woman and you educate a family."
-- A.Cripps

"If mama ain't happy, nobody is happy" - source unknown
As moms we often forget to take care of ourselves, forget our power and who we are and what we can do. And sometimes, we need a little extra help, encouragement, and ideas along the way to help us be our best selves. Which is why I am so excited about this giveaway today!The Power of Moms is "all about moms helping other moms become the mothers and people they really want to be". The retreats they organize are special events designed for learning and growing. At this retreat you can learn about Mind Organization for Moms (M.O.M.) by April Perry (the founder of M.O.M.) on Friday. M.O.M is a way to help you feel less stress and more joy as a mom as you learn to organize your papers, tasks and thoughts in a way that really helps you get more done WHILE enjoying your family more. And not to mention the fun Friday night dinner and games after the first session.

Saturday will be a day of mini sessions with topics ranging from: Taking Care of the Person Inside the Mom, Family Systems and Making Great Ideas into Reality.

But I will let you find out the full details by clicking the link right here. Here are a few quotes from past attendees:
“My husband is amazed at the peace and productivity that came from just 2 days at the Retreat. Thank you for the life-altering changes on the way I look at motherhood and my life. I feel like a happier healthier me.” – Susan C.

“What a magical weekend! I haven’t laughed so hard or learned so much in a long, long time.” - Jen J.
Now for the real fun! Power of Moms has given me permission to give one of you a chance to attend the Premium Retreat in Southern California for 1/2 price!

If you are in or can easily get to Southern California on January 27th and 28th- this is your chance! The winner will be able to chose from either 1/2 price for the full Retreat (Friday afternoon sessions on organizing, Friday evening party, and Saturday 9-5 sessions) for only $107 (regularly $215) OR if you can't attend the whole thing you can pick 1/2 price for just Saturday for only $65 (regularly $130).

If you are wanting to attend- do not hesitate to enter this giveaway- and do not hesitate to go take advantage of the EXTENDED early bird rates (20% off) that only runs through the 13th. When you buy your tickets at the early bird rate and then if you happen to win, the difference will be refunded to you. I have been told there are only about 20 tickets left as this is limited retreat as we are meeting in a beautiful home. So hurry!

So seriously, go buy your tickets! It is going to be awesome. I have a cousin-in-law coming all the way from the Bay area to attend!

To enter- simply leave a comment stating why you would like to attend.
