My husband and I moved to Lloydminster 12 years ago with his new job. We have no family here, with the closest relative more than 2 hours away. We also didn't know anyone. We had all 3 of our children without the help and assistance of a village. It was HARD! To be real honest it STILL is hard, even with my youngest now 5 years old.
Motherhood was never meant to be done alone. The weight and pressure of the responsibilities put on us as Mothers is too much for one person to hold. I know there are so many Moms like me, in Lloydminster and the surrounding communities, that don't have their family nearby. I want you to know that I understand the challenges you face. I wish each of you could have a village to surround you as you navigate the early years of motherhood.
This is why I have created the
JIP Moms Supporting Moms group
This group is for Moms who need a village!
You might be expecting, have recently had another child or have some years of experience under your belt. If you NEED to find other Moms to build your support village, I hope this can be a place where you can find 'your person'.
This is a social, support group.
The monthly meetings will be a break from your children,
as we visit and chat about the WINS and the FAILS of motherhood.
Is this YOU?
If you think being a mother is hard but never give up and keep trying to do better, than this group is for you.
If you are a mother who would like to meet other moms IN PERSON, this group is for you.
If you would like to be a part of a positive, supportive Mom group, without judgement and filled with compassion, this group is for you.
This group might NOT be for you if you think being a Mom is so easy and Fun.
That is awesome! I'm happy for you, but I can't relate.
(maybe someone can start a Super Mom group)
These meetings will be held in Lloydminster. When my new studio is finished being built (spring 2021), they will happen there. In the meantime I am looking for a temporary location to have our first get together in the Fall, this year. Please contact me if you have a possible meeting place available. The group size will be limited by how many can fit in the spaces available, but also will be affected by the current virus risk.
There is however, no limit to the number of group members on FB so if you'd like to join the JIPMSM (Jen Isackson Photography Moms Supporting Moms) please click HERE and request to JOIN!
I can't wait to meet you and hear ALL the stories you have, cause I know they will be EPIC!
