Mommas, we need each other. To remind one another that we are uniquely made to mother our children. To encourage one another to look beyond the struggles of motherhood. To point each other towards something bigger than ourselves.
— Christina Acosta-Martinez, Founder

Becoming a Growing Up Gorgeous member allows you to join a movement that believes authentic community can make a world of difference. We are not your typical moms group. We do more than craft, push beyond the masks, and go deeper than our role as moms.

Our membership program is designed for women who want to enjoy monthly mommy meet-ups. Our members come to relate to other moms, feel refreshed with self-care, and learn about resources that can restore balance to their lives.

Frequently asked questions

 

WHO IS GROWING UP GORGEOUS FOR?

Growing Up Gorgeous is for all women. Members of Growing Up Gorgeous come from a diverse set of circumstances. We believe that all women are created in the image of God and therefore equally qualified to reflect his compassionate, nurturing, life-giving nature. Whether you are a woman of color, a single mom, a creative mompreneur, a working mom, a seasoned mom or a woman engaged in family planning, there is room for you at the table.  We have created a space where there is value in our collective voices.

WHAT IS A GROWING UP GORGEOUS LOCAL COTERIE?

A coterie is a small, exclusive group of friends with similar interests. Coteries meet together for monthly events. When a momma walks into a Growing Up Gorgeous event, she will have nothing to worry about and can enjoy an atmosphere of peace.

We get to know our members on a personal level so that we can offer services that the community needs. This often includes high quality child-care, discounted self-care experiences, seminars with professionals and time to laugh and share!
 

CAN I STILL JOIN THE SOUTH JERSEY COTERIE? 

Yes, the coterie is open for new members and will meet on the second Saturday of every month in the South Jersey/Philly area.

 

 

South Jersey Moms Coterie Launch

On September 10th, a dynamic group of women gathered in Haddonfield, New Jersey for the launch of the coterie. The event was a refreshing experience, as moms had time off from their day-to-day responsibilities. 

This was the beginning of something special.

You can read more about the event on Yvonne Simms' blog here.
