The Mum Heart Conference in Australia was born out of a desire to encourage mums in their journey as a mother and as a teacher of their children.
These conferences began in 2012 when Barbara Somervaille and a wonderful team of women from Queensland’s Darling Downs organised the Sunshine Coast Mum Heart conference. The following year a group of NSW mums took on the challenge to host a conference in Newcastle, NSW. Since then we have been alternating the conference organisation between a these two teams that are headed up by Barb Sommervaille from the Darling Downs in Queensland and Michelle Morrow from Hunter Region.
We hope one day to see a Mum Heart conference in each state of Australia.
Ladies have travelled from all corners of Australia to join us each time and it is wonderful to see the blessing it is for those more isolated to meet others sharing the homeschooling journey.
We are not a formal organisation. The team is a group of Christian mothers who value wholehearted motherhood and desire to encourage all mums to be the best they can be.
The format and content of these conferences was inspired by Sally Clarkson’s Mom Heart Conferences in America and is not for profit.
