St George POM Retreat

I don’t even know where to start! I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for quite some time now and it came and went by way too fast. I found the Power of Moms from a book I read and have loved the site ever since and then they introduced learning circles and a bunch of girls from my church started a little group and we meet once a month.

So excited to see how much the Power of Moms will change the culture of...
