National ConferenceNormal, IL | March 16-17, 2012
Gathering with thousands of moms, Hearts at Home main sessions are high energy opportunities to laugh and learn. Through drama, music, and speakers who understand the real challenges of motherhood, you'll find your vision refreshed, your heart full, and your perspective transformed. Main sessions will take place at the beginning of your conference day and immediately following your workshop breakouts.
As moms, we all know that part of the parenting adventure is adjusting our plans when the unexpected happens, whether it's a baby's due date, a death in the family, or the stomach flu! The Hearts' staff arranges conferences 12-18 months in advance, and from time to time circumstances may make it impossible for our scheduled speakers to attend. Should this situation arise, we will do our best to find a similar replacement speaker/workshop. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility!
This fun-filled event featured music, comedy, lots of laughs, plus a surprise or two.
