Umbrella Ministries presents the

2019 East Coast

"Journey of the Heart" Conference

Dear Precious Moms,

Please join with other mothers who have experienced the loss of a child as we find encouragement and support by coming together at the annual East Coast Journey of the Heart conference.

Your special weekend will include Inspirational speakers and workshops sharing incites on grief and the tools with which to cope.  You will meet new friends walking the same road and journey towards healing.  You will experience special times of sharing, caring and bonding during your Circle of Love group, and build lasting friendships with other moms who “get it”.  We’ve created a heartfelt time of celebrating and remembering our children through a quiet candlelight ceremony, a special craft to honor our children and “Footprints in the Sand” beach walks of HOPE each morning.
