Momnipotent will be an 8 week journey that will validate the dignity and importance of motherhood, by helping mothers to recognize 8 uniquely feminine strengths, and how to use those strengths to find peace, purpose, balance, and joy in being the woman God created and called them to be. It will highlight that Mothers possess a certain special array of gifts, given by God and lived out in particular through the vocation of motherhood, that bless the family and the world. It’s a God given gift to a mother to be so loving and so caring. A male cannot duplicate a female in the family. Women are unique and they are the heart of the family. Women are marked by God to be soldiers for Him and Her family.
This 8 week series will be facilitated by Karen Bourgon, wife & mother of six (three girls & three boys, now 31, 26, 24, 21, 18 & 14) and Lina Gagnon (dedicated mother to a grown son). Participants will be able to share their joys and struggles in their vocations as mothers with this exciting and informative workshop series.
