Special Guest: Linda Lisi Juergens Executive Director, National Association of Mothers’ Centers Topic: A Mother's Day Special - Celebrating Motherhood in the 21st Century Motherhood can be exhilarating, yet frightening, joyful, and yet confusing. It can be the most rewarding-and undervalued-job in the world. Recognizing these challenges, realities and value of mothering, the National Association of Mothers’ Centers since 1975 has offered a community-building model that has successfully laid foundations for hundreds of Mothers’ Centers programs around the country. These programs offer moms and other caregivers a sense of camaraderie, peer support, empathy, information, and resources for their hard work of parenting and care-giving. As the collective voice of mothers in the United States, they work and serve at both the grassroots and national level by providing: • Support to more than 30 Mothers' Centers around the United States • Organize high-impact conferences and events about parenting, maternal health, child development and work-life balance • Bring issues related to motherhood and care-giving to the center of public policy discussions through their Mothers Ought To Have Equal Rights (MOTHERS) In the “Food for the Soul” section of my book From My Mama’s Kitchen –“food for the soul, recipes for living,” I wrote about our mom being our teacher, coach, and counselor. It is all about creating and loving. It requires patience, a happy attitude, and a touch of love. Over the years, the National Association of Mothers’ Centers have successfully created a safe, nurturing environment that lead to healthier and happier mothers, healthier children, and families, which gave birth to community excellence!
