Mothers of Men: Transitioning from Boys to Men 10/24/20

This is a conversation between mothers of men (M.O.M.s) about when to let go.

A tale of two adults. We are both are adults but we have different depths of adulthood. We have raised them, but have we prepared them? We taught them right from wrong but not to be critical thinkers. “Mothers of Men” will be a conversation between M.O.M.s about the difficulties of transitioning our relationships with them from boys to men. How do you know when to help and when to to let go? As we dive deeper, we’ll also reflect on our own parental shortcomings with our sons in the hopes of evolving our relationships and helping young mothers of sons to not make the same mistakes.

This is a virtual event that will take place as a Facebook Watch Party. So save the date and invite another M.O.M.!

Exodus 23:14–17 (HCSB): 14 “Celebrate a festival in My honor three times a year. 15 Observe the Festival of Unleavened Bread. As I commanded you, you are to eat unleavened bread for seven days at the appointed time in the month of Abib, because you came out of Egypt in that month. No one is to appear before Me empty-handed. 16 Also observe the Festival of Harvest with the first fruits of your produce from what you sow in the field, and observe the Festival of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather your produce from the field. 17 Three times a year all your males are to appear before the Lord GOD.
