Like members of any other serious profession, mothers need opportunities to network with other moms and share “best practices” in their field.
Our highly-acclaimed Power of Moms Retreats offer deliberate mothers the inspiration, motivation, and comfort they crave.

Our main goal with our Retreats is to gather mothers to a beautiful location and give them an opportunity to strengthen each other, participate in meaningful discussions, and return home armed with ideas and inspiration to help them build great families.
A Day Retreat typically lasts from 9 am to 5 pm on a Saturday (set-up happens with a few volunteers the night before), and it includes conference-style presentations (with lots of audience participation), a lovely lunch with powerful discussion groups, and several break-out sessions for small group conversations.
We focus on topics such as taking care of the person inside the mom, establishing family systems for discipline, chores, and traditions, moving good ideas forward, and keeping a healthy perspective on motherhood. Each Retreat has been incredible. Not because we think we’re incredible, but because the mothers who attend are deliberate, sharp, wonderful women who want to create strong families. Simply being in a room with so many good women who want to grow and learn from each other is powerful. And we help facilitate great discussions while providing lots of exciting tried-and-true ideas.
Here are the details on our location search:
- What are we looking for? While we do consider some beautiful hotels and event centers, we generally look for a large home that can seat between 50 and 90 mothers. (We won’t be bringing our children, so it will stay very clean!) By holding the Retreat in a home, we are able to keep the costs down and enable more mothers to attend. We are also able to provide more discounted rates for mothers who really want to attend but might not be struggling financially. Plus we’ve found that a home atmosphere works beautifully for our subject matter.
- Location: We typically look for a home that is relatively close to an airport and reasonably-priced hotels. We also try to choose a city that is a central gathering point in your area (so we can easily involve mothers from surrounding cities).
- Ideal amenities: Convenient parking, a light and bright atmosphere, space for lunch discussion groups to be held outside, at least two restrooms that can be used by attendees, and the ability to bring in outside catering.
- What will Power of Moms provide? Chair rental (if needed), a catered lunch to be brought in, helpers to set up and clean up after the event, etc. Basically, if a homeowner is kind enough to co-sponsor this Retreat, we will take care of all the details and do our best to create as little disruption as possible.
These large rooms have worked well for past Retreats:
