GENERAL MEETINGS... Happy New Year! So many of us make resolutions to get healthy this time of year, either committing to dieting or losing weight.  When it comes to “diet” it really is a lifestyle change! Please join us for our first Montgomery Mom’s Meeting of 2014. On January 7, former Montgomery Mom Carmen Maxwell is going address “The Skinny on Fats.” Carmen will address facts about fat, which fats are good, what kind of fat

we should eat, fast food eating tips. Carmen has been sharing nutrition information for 8 years and is a certified Dr. Sears L.E.A.N. coach. In Feb. we’ll be hearing from Sharon Guard who’s going to talk about the Five Love Languages for both spouses and kids. If you find that you don’t quite “understand” your spouse or your children it’s because you aren’t speaking the same love languages. Come learn what they are and what you can do to improve your love communication.
