Building Better Moms

Here at Resurrection...

we love our moms!

We want to support you in the ways that you need at each age and stage and help you find a community you can do motherhood with. Our Moms Groups meet at multiple locations at varying times and frequencies so that you can find what works best for you, but each group brings in incredible speakers on topics relevant to motherhood and facilitates group conversation to help you build community!

What is Building Better Moms?

Imagine… a place that meets you right where you’re at as a mom, a woman and a friend.

Building Better Moms offers groups based on ages of children, so that a mom can connect with other moms who have children at similar ages and stages. Check the group dates carefully to select the right one for you. 

Everyone must register to attend. Our registration is currently closed for this school year, but you can connect with us about 2024-2025 if you’d like at the button above!

Building Better Moms FAQs

Yes! Building Better Moms groups are meeting at our Leawood and West locations. Contact Lauren Cook for Leawood questions and Elle Dummermuth for West questions.

The BBM program follows our local school calendar with the first meeting each program year in September and the last in May. Registration kicks off each year on Mother’s Day weekend (May) for the following program year (Sept). Register for Leawood groups at the buttons at the top and bottom of this page.

Yes. The membership fee of $45 for moms includes 13 meetings. There is an additional $45 fee for childcare, per child, that covers the childcare for all meetings. Fees are collected during online registration. There are scholarships available and you can reach out to Susan Brown for more information on those.

Yes! Some groups fill to capacity right away in May, while others reach the maximum number during the summer.

If a group reaches our set number of members, you can indicate that you’re interested in a group that has filled. We will then be in touch with you to discuss all of the options that we might have available for you! Our goal is to accommodate as many moms as possible into each and every group!

Groups are held to a maximum number in order to allow friendships to form within table groups. Consistency is important for relationships to take hold and for moms to begin sharing their true bumps and blessings. An important network of moms who “get it” grows into a lifeline in this manner. Additionally, the volunteer leadership of each group is equipped through training sessions to manage a set number of participating moms, rather than an evolving set of new names and faces. Our goal is to accommodate every mom who is interested in joining.
