 Join other women in this supportive group as they discuss many things; but all are topics which interest women!  Some examples of discussion items thus far are; relationships, parenting, budgeting, our dreams for ourselves and our children, and how to go about achieving them!  They have explored nutrition, exercise, emotional health, and are looking forward to a visit from a therapist from Selah Therapy, who will be offering free shoulder and neck massages.   Participants will be deciding what topics they would like to explore next.     New members are always welcome.
