This July, a Becoming ticket has your name on it!!

The Ultimate Girls Getaway. Be spontaneous, grab some friends (or come alone and make new ones) because this is a weekend for YOU to be encouraged and refreshed on all things heart and home. We would love to have you join us.

Hosted in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina,  July 26 – 28, 2019 marks our 8th annual event. (And yes, this is the view from our meeting room. I took this photo with my cell phone and it’s more beautiful in person.)

Becoming 2019 is a weekend designed to encourage and inspire women to live intentionally by becoming more creative and purposeful.

This is your weekend. Our time together has become a tradition for hundreds. We create an atmosphere where you can come as you are, connect and have fun but most importantly, take some time to refresh. We love hearing about all the people who have come as strangers, but have left as friends

With a whole weekend, you’ll have time to sit by the lake and enjoy the big rockers that overlook the mountain view. We want this to be time well spent, a weekend where you come home encouraged, motivated and ready to tackle the everday moments with a new sense of abundance.


As women, we understand the desire to be more intentional with our time and finances, more intentional with our family and homes, but sometimes we’re stuck, not ready to elevate the ordinary.

As we gather from all walks of life, our desire is that you will leave, not only refreshed, but encouraged, empowered, and motivated with the inspiring and tangible ideas you have received.

Plus, you’ll love our Girls Night In on Friday and Saturday nights, where we have a ton of fun hanging out, crafting, eating and enjoying some good ole fashioned girl time. Whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, don’t worry, we have something for everyone.


From encouragement for our hearts and topics ranging from

  • Fabulous Home Decor (that you don’t have to break the bank to incorporate)
  • DIY encouragement for your home
  • Simple Hospitality
  • Hand and chalk board lettering
  • Gardening, floral arrangements
  • Easy meal planning/freezer cooking (learn that instant pot)
  • Saving money ideas
  • De-cluttering at the speed of life – organization
  • Mothering, traditions and family
  • Creating a peaceful home and MORE

We touch on nearly everything heart and home. Becoming 2019 will breathe life and give purpose to our everyday moments.

If it comes to creating, repurposing or being intentional with our money, time and energy, we want to cover it.

decluttering at speed of life

We’ve now had the privilege of sharing our love of all things creative, purposeful and frugal with over a thousand women from around the US, and it’s a joy to have met so many of you.

Our desire is that all women can attend, and that is why we offer the conference, hotel, four meals and lots of goodies for around $200 (If sharing with four friends to a room.)

Please note that conference tickets are purchased separately.  A ticket includes two days worth of all of the break out sessions, special activities, goodies and Ladies Night In. Purchase tickets through this link.

BLACK FRIDAY weekend – Early bird ticket price is $80.

Your choice of lodging and meals will need to be reserved directly through Lake Junaluska’s reservation center. We have a variety of room options but the nicest hotel rooms at the Terrace did sell out quickly.  Rooms are on a first come, first serve basis.

Please see the Registration Details and break down of conference prices before you call to reserve  your room.

Kick back and relax. The beautiful mountains of NC are calling you to this perfect girls get away. Come be a part of something new, unique and exciting. Join a room full of women whose desire is to Become More.

We are so excited to meet you, and enjoy this weekend with you. It will be here before you know it.



Becoming 2019 Agenda (Posted as event comes closer)

Throughout the weekend, we offer amazing workshops that touch on Becoming more Creative and Intentional.

Each speaker is an expert in their field, and eager to share their passion with you. Don’t worry, some of the topics will be repeated, ensuring you can hit on your top choices.

Remember, you do not sign up for these. They’re included in the low cost of your conference ticket ($80 Black Friday only).

Becoming Frugal

We all want to be more intentional with how we spend our money, and there are lots of ways to do it. Whether wanting to learn quick tips on saving money in the kitchen or decorating your home like a pro without breaking the break account, we have suggestions on it all.  For most of us, we desire to save where you can, so we can spend on what we want.

We will cover beginning and advanced ways to save, including creative ways to put money aside, budgeting, meal planning and freezer cooking.

Becoming Purposeful

Many of us fly through each day with lists to get done that we never complete. It’s time to live with intention and purpose. Remember what you started all this for, and refocus on creating organization and intention in a very chaotic world.

Whether you are single or have a house full, understanding your long term vision is key. Whether you desire more encouragement on mothering, living on purpose or organization, these days seem long, yet the years are short, so be blessed by the wisdom of those who have maneuvered these waters for decades.

Becoming Creative

HGTV has revolutionized the way many of us think about decorating, but how can we bring that creativity to our own homes? Be inspired and encouraged with the notion that “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.”

From experts in DIY and home decor, you will learn how to cast a vision for your own home and find inspiration everywhere. The best part is that all this can be done with just pennies on the dollar.

Take a sneak peek from one of our past years to catch a glimpse of the fun.
