Come join us July 26 – 28 for Becoming 2019. We have saved you this seat!! 

I can’t believe I am announcing that registration for our eighth (or is it ninth) annual Becoming Conference is open. I am over the top thrilled to invite you to join us!! Whether you come alone (take the first step and we will connect you with new friends) or you gather some others for the ultimate girls getaway weekend, I can’t wait to meet you.

When this was a dream in my heart all those years ago to bring practical, hands on topics to my blog readers, I never would have imagined that it would become a longstanding tradition with hundreds of women coming from all over the US.

This time away is for YOU!

A weekend for YOU to be encouraged, refreshed and gather with other women who are journeying right along side you in all things heart and home.

Lake Junaluska - becoming conference

Becoming 2019 is a weekend designed to encourage and inspire women to live intentionally by becoming more creative, purposeful, and frugal. As women, many of us desire to be more intentional with our time and financial resources; more intentional with our family and homes, but aren’t sure how to make that happen. I guarantee that you will laugh, maybe cry, but have tons of fun doing it.Trash-to-treasure-at-Becoming

As we gather from all walks of life, we will tackle some of those day to day issues that typically seem mundane and give you a sense of magic. Our desire is that you will leave, not only refreshed, but encouraged, empowered, and motivated with the practical and tangible ideas you have received.

From encouragement in our homes, families and mothering to meal planning (I’m bringing in an Instant Pot expert this year), hospitality, home organization, gardening, home decor, DIY, chalk board and hand lettering workshops and more, our time together will breathe life and give purpose to our everyday moments.

If it comes to creating, repurposing or being intentional with our money, time and energy, we want to cover it.


As we are bring together a number of talented speakers and bloggers, all who are passionate in their areas of expertise, they will instruct and inspire you on a number of topics.

With both large groups and smaller, interactive workshops, we want to ensure that you leave empowered with tools to enrich your life. There’s always something to learn, new ways to find inspiration and for me, it’s the boost I need to reengage my spirt on all things heart and home.

Hosted once again in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC on July 26 – 28, 2019, we will be at the Lake Junaluska Conference and retreat center.

Sweet friends, that is our view and It’s AMAZING!!

Please note that you will need two separate registrations if you are planning on staying on-site.

As an extra incentive to grab your tickets now, if you purchase before March 31, you’ll be entered to win two boat cruise tickets as well as pre-conference hands on workshop tickets.

Your choice of lodging and meals will need to be reserved directly through Lake Junaluska’s reservation center, but  don’t delay too much because hotels rooms  will sell out this year. Rooms are on a first come, first serve basis. They have some great houses to rent on the lake as well.

Please see all the details at the Becoming site and see lodging options. This is just an overview.

The mountains of NC are calling you. Come be a part of something new, unique and exciting. Join a room full of women whose desire is to Become More.

Turn off the TV, grab some girlfriends, and escape on a breathtaking getaway to Asheville’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

We are so excited to meet you, and enjoy this weekend with you. It will be here before you know it.

(We haven’t done a new video, but you can catch a tiny peek into what our weekend.)
