Moms' Group has a special speaker coming in from Middlebury, Indiana for two of our March meetings. Meschelle Kolb is a wife, mother of three, speaker, author, life coach, and woman of God who will be presenting two different talks. On Tuesday evening, Mar.20th from 7-9 pm, Meschelle will present...
Loving Mondays: How to Stop Dreading the Work Week and Start Loving Your Life - Based off the quote by Eleanor Roosevelt, “Happiness is not an end goal; it is the by-product of a well-lived life,” Meschelle explains 5 qualities of a well-lived life: Be Intentional, Be Forward Thinking, Be Thankful, Be Great – Not Perfect, and Be Generous. This is a very practical talk, with hands-on application.
Then on Wednesday morning, Mar. 21st from 9:30-11:30 am, she will present...
Life Balance - This is also a very practical talk designed to help women evaluate their priorities so they can live with purpose and fulfillment. It includes hands-on activities as we start the process of breaking life into 5 areas: spiritual, emotional, physical, vocational and relational. We then talk about how to decide what is good and what needs improvement in each area. Finally, we talk about how to take those next steps so that we can live the balanced life that we have always wanted.
