IT’S COMING! A fun, encouraging, challenging and inspiring conference for MOMS, MENTORS and MINISTRY LEADERS where you can find solid biblical teaching, enjoying connecting with and laughing with old and new friends, and leave empowered to fulfill your God-given calling and with the confidence of knowing you don’t have to take your mom journey alone. Hey ladies… there is something at BETTER TOGETHER for women of all ages and all stages! Whether you’re a married mom, single mom, step mom, grandma, a woman of adult children, a woman with know children, a woman looking for encouragement in her walk with God or looking to find hope and healing for her heart… there is something at BETTER TOGETHER for every woman!  Hey moms…Do you ever feel alone in the midst of mommy-hood? Like you can’t find your way past the mounting pile of laundry and the unending mound of dishes in the sink? Do you ever feel like you just need to get away with some other moms, laugh together, cry together, pray together and just be refreshed? Hey ministry leaders and mentor mommas…Do you ever wish there was a place where you could be inspired and equipped during a working conference time especially for you and meet other women who have longed to step into their Titus 2 shoes but felt inadequate and without support, just like you do? A place where you could find fresh new ideas and resources to help you in your mentoring ministry?
