September 2015 Meeting

Good Morning!
Thank you all for a wonderful meeting on Monday!  It was so good to see old friends and new faces. There was a lot of information thrown out there to you all yesterday so we wanted to provide a quick follow-up to the meeting in case you may have missed something.
From the meeting…
Nita Zelenak gave a great talk on the Family First aid Kit about dealing with conflict.  The two books she referenced from her talk were: The Peace Maker and Resolving Everyday Conflict both by Ken Sande.  These are available on Amazon and in the Northland Bookstore.
Prayer Jars – if you have a prayer request that you would like to have our mentors pray over.  Please make sure to fill out a card and place it in the jars at each table.  They will take these requests and pray over them together.  You can be anonymous or put your name on it and they will always be kept confidential.
Free registration has been provided for all members of our group to The Moms Mastery Live conference. Information can be found on Facebook or by going to www.mommasterylive.com   The code to register is MMLPASS1
