“Never Give Up – The Survivor Way”
Featuring keynote speaker Holly Hoffman – mother of 3, nationally known speaker, author of Your Winner Within and finalist on the TV show Survivor! As we survive life’s challenges, we come face to face with fear and uncertainty. Challenges may allow us to step out of our comfort zone and push ourselves above and beyond our own self-limitations. It is how we choose to overcome challenges that make us who we are. It is our strength in times of difficulty that prove our character and self-worth. As I share my experience of being on a reality show, I encourage you to think about how you decide to survive on a daily basis. I will encourage you to think about six words to develop your survival skills. With my six simple words, you can take on any challenge you are faced with. Adversity is not so much contending with problems as it is learning more about who you really are and what is inside of you. Join me and explore what your true survival skills are.

Moms - you deserve a day for yourself! As much as you love being a mom, sometimes it can be overwhelming. At the Moms' Expo, you will be surrounded by women who know what it's like! Join us - we'll give you some tips and insight on how to enjoy this rollercoaster ride called "motherhood"!

About the Moms' Expo
Being a mother is one of the most important, rewarding, and challenging jobs that most women will ever have. In addition to all the outside pressures, mothers often have an internal desire to be "perfect" - to have perfect children, a perfect marriage, a perfect home, and often a perfect career.

It's impossible to be "perfect" and to be "everything" to everyone. Children grow up too fast, and as mothers we want to be focusing our energies on the "right" things so we don't miss out on the important moments as our children grow.

The goal of this Moms' Expo is to help mothers of all ages and stages of parenting to enjoy motherhood and everyday life: by finding balance, having realistic expectations of themselves and their children, and living in the moment. What better way to accomplish this than to have local mothers share their experience/knowledge in an informal small group setting- where brainstorming is encouraged as mothers come together and share ideas, tips, etc. Let’s learn to “survive” motherhood together!
