Candles for Mom 2023

A Pre-Mother's Day Event

What if you could turn your pain into peace and heal your broken heart while missing your mom? 

What if Mother’s Day 2023 and beyond was more joyful than painful or sad?

Mother’s Day can be challenging for many people whose moms, or mother figures, are no longer physically present because of death or abandonment. 

Imagine navigating your first Mother’s Day without your mom or your 40th one that’s still as painful or numbing as the first one.

The day can also challenge mothers who have buried a child(ren) or given them up for adoption.

There is room in your heart for both, even though it may not feel like it.


What if you knew how to honor, celebrate, and remember your mom every day versus one day a year?

This pre-Mother’s Day event will answer each of these questions and more. 

I will share my story about my mom’s death and how helping people on their grief journey became my life’s work. 

Whether you had a loving or less-than-loving relationship with your mom during her life, this event will provide a welcoming atmosphere where you’ll learn from each other and feel heard, seen, and valued without criticism, analysis, or judgment. Tears are welcome, and please bring your tissues. 

We’ll share our mom’s favorite flower, color, song, Bible verse, recipe, or favorite memory.  And we will showcase our moms in a slideshow if you send in a photo no later than May 10, 2023. 

May 13, 2023

11:00am-12:00pm EST

Register early, and please share the link with anyone you know.  


Don't miss this event if you are always giving but feel there is no one to support you when you need it most.

  • We will pause the day before Mother’s Day to equip you with your Mother’s Day Preparedness Kit, which can also serve as your toolkit for life when change, loss, and transition occur. 
  • All attendees will be entered into a drawing for a full scholarship to the Online From Grief to Gratitude Coach Certification Program - Silver Program (Value $777).
