I wanted to get out there and show my love and support for moms but I wasn’t sure how to do it. If I can’t hug or see people then what can I do?
-I hosted daily Zoom meetings with moms right up until April 6th (when school was supposed to start).
-I started e-mailing wellness notes to teachers every week. I am still doing this and really enjoy creating these.
-A few weeks into it, I added the staff at PLEO and frontline workers to my weekly list as well.
-I recorded myself reading my book, Have You Hugged Your Alien? and posted it to YouTube. I thought it could be helpful for moms who need a break or are looking for something new to read with their little ones.
-I also recorded a book reading for Out of the Mouths of Moms.
Then I started thinking about Mother’s Day and I wondered what I could offer. Here it is…
-I created an activity kit for children to create their aliens just like they would at my workshop. I asked for nominations on Facebook and a local mom, Meghan Coupal, won the kit. She has four children so I know she’ll be happy to have a fun activity for them.
-I offered to sign, wrap and deliver copies of my book, Out of the Mouths of Moms, to mothers in and around Kemptville for $25. Three books were delivered.
-I posted a poll on Facebook to find out which topic was of interest to moms as I design my very first online course. The topic with the most votes was Search Party. There will be more information on this as I finish designing my course.
-I started a 21 day Challenge based on the Search Party theme. This is an opportunity for women to do some excavation and get back to their core. So many of us get lost in our roles and become invisible to ourselves and to the people we love the most.
I will post a question at noon every day that you can answer in the comments or in your journal or on your own Facebook page. If you want to link them to my challenge, tag me in your post and add the hashtag, #searchparty4moms. This is going to be so fun!
This is my way to serve you.
As always, I am open to your questions and suggestions,
