NADINE JAMISON

Table Name TBD

I’m Nadine Jamison, I’ve been in the Cleveland Ohio area for almost 5 years now. I have moved across country a few times now and finding a church family has always been key to feeling at home in a new state. I’m one of those crazy moms building an in home business so that I can center my life around my priorities. I have a degree in business with a concentration in marketing. My children are nearly 16 “YIKES” and 12, both Boys. I’ve been married for 13 years, to my husband Steve.  I’m incredibly passionate about teaching other women what I’ve learned about living life in balance. Finding connections with other women, and giving themselves grace are key. I believe that when a woman finds value in herself she sends a ripple effect to all those around her. Understanding that her value is a gift from God and that she is treasured by him unlocks her potential to thrive as a wife, mother, sister, and friend. I am blessed to remind her of that value, pray over her, and simply encourage her through Momtourage.

Hello, my name is Gwendolyn Liederbach and I am excited to say that this is my 7th year as a mentor mom. When it comes to  promoting worship, helping others be successful, and being a loving and motivated mother and wife, my heart leads the way. 

I have been married to my wonderful and dedicated husband Erik for more than 20 beautiful years and in those years we have been blessed with three amazing and vivacious daughters, a son-in-law, and precious grandson!

I enjoy relaxing to a good book, the elegance of fine art, and an occasional espresso from Starbucks with good company. With all said and done, my husband, three daughters, and my precious grandson, as well as my love for the Lord give me the power and passion to show others that God’s blessings come in all ways, shapes, and forms.

Hello there, I'm Laurie Weiser. My high school sweetheart, Dave, and I are celebrating over 20 years of marriage.  We have three daughters.  The oldest, Abbey, and the middle, Hailey, are in high school, and the youngest, Whitney, is in elementary school.  All three girls dance competitively and they travel with the team as well.  I also work at CVC a few days a week.  To me, the biblical model of MOMtourage lies in the generational linking where each generation can add value to the other.
