Creation is Messy

There’s this idea that the end results of the creative process are beautiful, and often we expect that process to go smoothly.  This morning, we’ll explore what can happen when we forget perfectionism and expectations.

  • Moms On a Mission is a grassroots, community based group of mothers who show up to East High School in Madison every single school  day to help foster the school community our kids deserve. MOMs creates a nonviolent environment by being present , by creating relationships, by de-escalating conflict, and by bringing community volunteers together to make a difference, right away, on the ground. MOMS has quickly and effectively harnessed the collective power of dozens of volunteers to support approximately 500 students on the ground. In addition they are powerful advocates for long-term, positive social change, equity, conflict resolution, and restorative justice practices.
