Testimonial from Nicole Mitchell

What brought me to St. Luke’s Mom Connection 7 years ago was the idea of getting alone time for myself and play time for my daughter. Being relatively new to the area I didn’t have many friends with young children who I could talk to or ask questions about what I was experiencing as a first time mom. A friend I met through the hospital asked if I would like to join her for the kick off party of a local moms group and ever since then I was hooked. I quickly felt included in a group of ladies who could relate to the good, the bad, and the ugly in my life. 

The group meant so much to me in the early years as I was experiencing milestones and setbacks with my first, second, and third child. I was able to participate in numerous playdates with my kids and girl’s nights out in addition to the monthly meetings. During the meetings I get to enjoy breakfast while listening to a speaker or watching a video on topics that relate to my life as a mom and woman. No matter how stressed or overwhelmed I feel walking into the meeting, I always leave feeling refreshed and optimistic. 

The group is much more than meetings and playdates though. I’ll never forget how appreciative I was after having my second (and third) child and I opened the door to a friendly face delivering a full meal to my family. In those early days of bringing another baby home, there was no gift more welcome than a prepared dinner. The group is always there to lend a hand when welcoming new additions, moving or if you are experiencing tough times. Last year a neighbor came to me asking for help for a young mother who was due any day and didn’t have clothes or a carseat to bring her baby home in. I reached out to the group and in a matter of days was turning down offers because she had more than she needed. I was overwhelmed by the generosity and caring these ladies had shown. 

As I sit here typing this, I have been interrupted by my 6 year old and 8 year old at least a dozen times. This is exactly why I have remained in the group well past the toddler years. The group for me is no longer as much asking questions on what to do and what to expect, but is more so time for me to talk to another human being without being interrupted or pulled in 5 different directions. I have made some wonderful friends in this group and am very grateful for St Luke Moms Connection.
