How Can GNO Strengthen You?
Mom It Forward's mission is to change the world one mom at a time. Yep! We mean our world and with your help. Lofty, we know. But, possible!

You may be thinking... "How do I balance my desire to give back with all the other responsibilities in my life?"

As moms, we know the demands of balance... which usually looks like balancing a baby on our hips while balancing the checkbook and at the same time attempting to balance our own physical, social/emotional, mental, and spiritual needs so we can even think about taking care of other's needs. Just put us on a tight rope already and make sure there's a really broad and strong net below, because that is a whole lot of balancing going on!
But, we also know that achieving success in our personal and professional lives and all the many roles we play in both arenas requires balance. That is why during the month of January, we are focusing GNO on strengthening moms... again, we mean You!... by discussing topics focused on balancing the whole person—on filling our pitchers, so to speak, so we can in turn fill the cups of those relationships that matter most to us.
