What is LILY Moms?
LILY (Life in the Little Years) Moms is open to all moms who are currently loving, struggling or just surviving life with little ones between birth and kindergarten. We want to provide an open, accepting atmosphere where the specific and significant needs of today's mothers of little ones are addressed; including friendship, tips on child-rearing, marriage, managing your home and your personal life – physically, emotionally and spiritually! The years of raising little ones offer that odd combination of pure fulfillment and utter frustration! In this high-stress period of a mother's life, she goes through a wide range of emotions: joy, excitement, isolation, loneliness and exhaustion! What's a mother to do? Come join us! No one should journey through this season alone.
Wondering About a Typical LILY Moms Meeting?
We meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month from October through May, 9:15 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at North Wake Church, 1212 South Main Street, Wake Forest, NC.
We eat breakfast…uninterrupted! We talk with other moms who may be in the midst of the same struggles. We discuss certain topics relevant to life and motherhood. We do creative activities. We schedule playdates. We laugh, we cry, we share and hopefully we build lifelong friendships along the way. All while our children are in childcare enjoying their own learning, creating and new friendships.
Registration for LILY Moms
Are you a mom of a child from pregnancy to kindergarten? Are you looking for encouragement, friendship and lots of fun? Then you won't want to miss out on LILY Moms this year! Registration for the 2019-2020 year will be available in June.
There is a one-time registration fee of $30. Then additional fees of $40 for the fall semester and $50 for the spring semester. This helps offset the cost of paid childcare. Full and partial scholarships are available. Space is limited, so register soon!
LILY Moms does not discriminate based on age, race, religion, or financial status.
