rediscovering me - a program for you

rediscover myself

If you feel like you’ve started to lose yourself to motherhood, career, or perhaps both, this program is for you. Rediscover who you are outside of the roles in your life:

  • – Find your way back to your authentic self
  • – Discover passions that make you feel whole and fulfilled
  • – Spark your creativity (everyone has a creative side even if they don’t know it!)
  • – Learn practical time management strategies to gain time back in your week
  • – Learn how to prioritize time for self care & pursuing your passions
  • – Gain clarity on your most important life goals
  • – Take action, gain momentum & make progress on your goals

As mothers we want our kids to feel the depth of true friendship. That often begins with helping our kids learn the art of being a true friend. Kind words, encouragement, being inclusive, simple gestures – these are all small things that can mean the world to another child. By Kids For Kids is a line of cards designed by children and meant for children. The cards include inspirational, positive messages to help kids offer kindness to others. In this modern electronic era, the classic gesture of giving a handwritten card is a simple way to extend kindness or gratitude in a personal way. When kindness and connection are expressed from one child to another, it can leave a lasting, positive impact.

Stay tuned for how your child’s artwork can be entered into a contest for our next card design!
