American Mothers August Meeting

by Karmel Larson

We had 4 new women attend our August Chapter meeting.  Here are some of them with Utah Young Mother of the Year, Ingrid Sorensen, and her new baby Julia.  That’s me in the middle with National Vice President Deanne Taylor on my right.  We had a great meeting discussing the white ribbon campaign, positive parenting, this months value of courage and an introduction to the new Mothers Achievement Program.  We also stuffed patient dolls for Primary Children’s Hospital and made some good progress doing that!

Our next meeting will be held at my house in Mapleton on September 11th at 7:30pm.  RSVP to  This will be our yearly county wide AMI reunion for all members past and present as well as combining with any other Utah County chapters.  So if you love AMI but only have time to come once a year… this is it!  Keep those friendships alive and join us for a bonfire night of bonding!  We’ll be discussing spirituality for our Mothers Achievement Program, Peacability for our monthly value and a discussion on the book The Soft Spoken Parent.
