What do you tell a person, whose fiancé has been in a serious crash resulting in brain damage and they no longer remember the person they are set to marry? How do you help a 15 year old whose father has tragically died in a fire and they have shut down in despair? What resource is there for a family whose only daughter has overdosed and the friends riding in her car with her, discards her body in a trash can and continues to drive her car around? Is there anything
To say thank you for the support over the last year … or last four years doesn’t seem to be enough.
Each year we have a new theme that we cultivate, embrace and add it into the next. We began with ensuring that we knew we were worth it and had self-confidence. That developed into our self-love and we began to heal from past hurts and situations. Last year we supported many as we are now embarking into a new era – GROWTH!
Our new year of Growth represents ...
... a Time for Change. Change is imminent today … unacceptance of others, racism, pandemic, loss of lives and of course the ultimate unknown. For A Motivating Love, this theme has been cultivating since we began, unbeknownst to us. We have slowly been growing and this time of change is exactly what we are here for.
Women give so much of themselves to others that at the end of the day, they are exhausted, worn out and barely making it to bed for a full 8 hours of good sleep. Most women that we’ve encountered are not being supported in their workplace and/or home life and have few people to turn to ask for help, make them laugh or just sit and enjoy some quiet time.
We are here to provide just those needed outlets.
1. September 2020 we are launching the long-awaited program, F.I.R.E. - to live, learn and edify the fundamental groundwork of empowerment, friends and support. 2. October we will celebrate breast cancer awareness month and the third installment of The Sensual Woman, our educating event exploring and teaching about female sexuality (mature audiences only).
3. Of course, all of our events will lead to the ultimate grand event in May 2021, Always Mothers Luncheon where we will celebrate 5 years with an evening gala … #AML2021Gala; won’t you join us? We have a lot in store to celebrate this milestone in our organization from dancing to an amazing dinner and more.
Our growth has ventured into new partnerships and affiliations, new team members, new theme music 😊, and new followers and support from you. We encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new.
Entering July 2020 means a new year and theme to focus on. We are entering a new era & a new beginning. Last year the team and I wrote down our goals for A Motivating Love and am happy to say that we achieved most of them with the support, love and help from our followers, volunteers, staff, and sponsors. Again, THANK YOU!
There is no time like the present to grow!
Make a change!
Dare to be different!
I am Daphne Anderson.
I took a chance and dared to be my authentic and true self.
Starting AML (both A Motivating Love & Always Mothers Luncheon) I have been thru and still going thru some trials and tribulations to be able to confidently say that I am walking in the shoes of the ladies that come thru this organization for assistance. To provide a listening ear and to laugh and have fun. My team and I are here to grow and walk with you. Please know that #YouAreNotAlone is not just a tagline or slogan but how we really feel. We are stretching ourselves daily to grow as we listen and learn from you, others and our own team.
An admin is the person or people to whom activities are involved in managing an organization. Our organization is fully operational by the love and support of our admins. They provide feedback, ideas and creativity that the next generation are feeling and going thru. Our admin team is amazing! Yes, we are very bias on this subject but we mean it. We appreciate the support, love, growth and admire them for the hard work that they contribute to the organization, events, and programs.
Allow us to introduce to you, AML Admins ...
Thankfully May has arrived. I thought that the year of April would never end. As everyone is beginning to slowly come out of hibernation, how are we as women adapting to the changes in our lives?
I read in my social media posts of mom's really enjoying teaching their children at home while others have a
As May arrives so does the new way of life. We are still sheltering at home for at least part of May and hopefully have learned something new about ourselves and families. For me, I have realized ...
Never in a million years did I expect to be experiencing a Shelter at home lifestyle. In such a short period of time our lives as mothers and working women (and fathers and men) have changed significantly.
What we once knew as "normal" will never be the same again. The new "normal" is yet to come. With this being said, now is the time, we need to pull together to support each other more than ever. Even though we cannot gather together physically, we can all support each other in other ways.
Take a few moments out of
I love what I do with my business and organization but I am also human. Sometimes walking thru life with others, I take on too much and/or I neglected my self care practices. The hashtag I use of #YouAreNotAlone means just that ... You Are NOT Alone! If I've not felt it, gone thru it or walked with another woman who has, I have someone on my team and in my life that has. My face of #depression isn't always sad because I am tired of crying. I am trying
To Drs. Paul Rubin and David Sentelle, its not just about the teeth. When you start a family, every parent wants their children to be the best they can possibly be in mind, body and spirit. Visiting a pediatric dentist for the first time can set the tone for how someone's relationship will go with dentists and doctors throughout their life. Even small things can feel traumatic to small children. The goal is to remove the feeling of impersonal mechanics and give the feeling of being helped as a person. Frisco Kid's Dentistry does this. We do this every day with every person who walks through our doors. We are committed to providing the highest level of customer service, with an inspired team, in a fun, educational and family-oriented environment. We value compassionate, personalized and health-centered relationships with both the kids and the parents.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of the most common, but potentially serious forms of Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). People of all ages, shapes and sizes can suffer from OSA without ever knowing it. In fact, an estimated 90% of the people who have OSA have never been diagnosed.
The repeated awakenings associated with OSA make normal restorative sleep impossible. People with obstructive sleep apnea often experience severe daytime drowsiness, fatigue, depression or irritability.
Wow … a new year for A Motivating Love began in July with a bang!
We have been busy meeting new sponsors, working with businesses on fundraiser nights and organizations that we will give back to over the next year.
We met with Janet Bernstein, who is the founder of the Every Heart Project. What a phenomenal woman. Janet is our speaker for our Always Mothers Luncheon on May 2, 2020. I cannot wait for her presentation. Janet also shared her new book with us "The New Rules of the Sisterhood". I highly recommend it. It makes one stop, think about your own friends and the relationships you have with them. It is great. I finished mine in a week.
We visited over the summer with Lance and Hannah with StreetSide Showers. What a caring group.
