By Genny

The Mom Initiative team, kicking our feet up!

All I can say is wow.  The Better Together conference in Florida was amazing. And since a picture really is worth a thousand words, I’ll just let the photos sum it up… There’s nothing else like hundreds of moms getting together–learning, laughing, and loving. It was a powerful and inspiring weekend, and I was honored […]  Continue reading

A few weeks ago, I went to Napa with my friends to celebrate our birthdays. We’ve all known each other since grammar school or high school and we have a tradition of getting together for a girls weekend once a year.

Are You Just Too Busy?

By Genny

That’s the question my friend Joanne asks in her book Just Too Busy – Taking Your Family on a Radical Sabbatical. Her book is the story of her own family’s struggle with busyness and what they did about it (took a year off from all extracurricular activities and learned to be a family again). In its […]  Continue reading
