Hearts at Home Offers Terrific Resources for Mothers (Giveaway)


When teacher Jill Savage decided to stay at home with her five kids, she realized that she still missed the stimulation of attending teacher conferences where she could learn about new ideas, receive encouragement from her peers, and educate herself on current techniques. Now that motherhood was her full-time job, she wondered how she could receive the same sort of benefits that she received at the teacher conferences, but on the subject of motherhood! In 1994, she shared her idea with a small circle of other women in Central Illinois. They decided to hold a conference like Jill envisioned. If they were really lucky, they thought, maybe 500 women would show up. Imagine their shock when more than 1,000 came from 10 different states! Jill knew she was on to something good, and the Hearts at Home organization was born.

Today, the Hearts at Home mailing list has grown to over 100,000 women. They offer conferences, a newsletter, online chat rooms, articles, a blog, a radio show, books, music, DVDs and many other services and products to, as their mission statement states, “encourage, educate and equip women in the profession of motherhood.” The video at the bottom of this post highlights some of the wonderful things that Hearts at Home is doing for mothers.
