Event gets women to think inside the box

Being a mom is a demanding job with unique challenges and no instruction book. That’s why two Southside moms banned together and created an event to give moms that much-need break to share and learn from each other’s experiences. “My Life Inside the Box” is a two-day experience designed for moms, by moms to offer tips and perspective on the role of motherhood.

“I am passionate because I see too many moms give up – throw in the towel and allow defeat to be an option,” says Angie Grant, founder of the event. “Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, wondering what you really accomplish in a day, or whether you are a working mom trying to balance it all, we are all just trying to make a difference.”

The third annual “My Life Inside the Box” will be held at 12310 Bailey Bridge Road on Aug. 20-21. On Friday, moms will enjoy a night designed especially for them packed with a comedic production of laughs and interactive fun. Lucky winners in attendance will receive over $2,000 worth of giveaways, and there will be lots of chocolate for everyone.

Each year, a new variety of workshops or “LIFEshops” about the home are offered. Attendees can choose four LIFEshops to attend on Saturday. A few of this year’s topics include: becoming a frugal mom, simplifying dinner, organizing, dealing with your teenager, handling the middle school years, the challenging child and hearing the story of a mother of multiples as she reflects on her journey.
