Mommy Guilt Event Followup

West Plains Foundation thanks Eunice Peterson who took time from her busy schedule to encourage moms to be more forgiving of themselves in the ups and downs of family life and develop confidence in motherhood. Thank you also to everyone who came out and participated in this event!

“ ’Mommy Guilt’ tackled head on, the lies we believe about ourselves as mothers and our ability to parent well. Through a series of profound stories and humorous anecdotes, Eunice introduced tools to soothe that inner critic and objectively assess our successes in order that we might grow in extending mercy to ourselves.”  – A.C.

Building Confidence Event Followup

What a night! Over 60 women braved the very cold weather and icy roads to attend our “Building Confidence – Keys to Avoiding Imposter Syndrome” event.

Justice Fenlon’s presentation on building confidence in the workplace inspired the young professional women in attendance. Said one participant:

“ The event was an absolute blast! Not only did attendees have a great time, but it also provided an excellent opportunity to network and learn how to become more confident women in business. I left feeling empowered and inspired; truly a relatable and insightful experience! ” 

Thank you Justice Fenlon!

Annual Valentines Fundraiser Followup

Thank you to everyone who attended and who worked to make our annual Valentine’s Fundraiser another success! A special thank you is also due to Maxine & Joe Leslie, who shared with us some of their experiences, memories and life lessons learned from their 50 years of marriage.

Here are a few photos from the event.

Volunteering for West Plains Foundation is a very rewarding experience. One is rewarded with opportunities to meet many amazing women and to experience personal growth.
