The definition of “outrageous” here is: “Beyond the bounds of the ordinary; highly unusual or unconventional; extravagant (in a good way); remarkable.”YWM thinks that today's women are immersed in a toxic sludge of role models, values, and ideas that encourage us to do the WRONG things! It’s about time there is somewhere to go where we are encouraged to do the RIGHT thing. YWM is the place! Welcome home!

About YourWebMom
Who is YourWebMom?
YWM is the next best thing to the mom (or good friend) you have, had…or wish you had!
Thanks for stopping by! YWM hopes you will enjoy and participate frequently in this warm online community.
YourWebMom.com was launched in 2010 by an age 50-something real person:
·        She has been single, married; fat, thin; reared children;
·        She has had careers in journalism and the insurance industry, and jobs in the service industry, including motel maid and fast food;
·        She has landed jobs, lost jobs;
·        She has lost loved ones, dealt with the pain of family members involved in substance abuse or who were imprisoned, and family members who made generally rotten life choices;
·        She has dealt with her own poor choices and emotional baggage, physical challenges, grief, loss, and has struggled with spiritual questions;
·        She has mentored many women and helped them learn about gratitude, spiritual matters, and recovery from life’s hurts, habits and hang-ups.
·        YourWebMom thinks that too many women today buy in to “group think” and they do things and believe things just because “everyone else” does.
YourWebMom is pretty conservative with traditional moral values. If you don’t like this world view, you may want to go somewhere else. And that’s OK…just make sure you have the FACTS and TRUTH on your side, not just opinions or social pressures.
Oh! And just because you don’t agree with one or two things here, doesn’t mean the rest of the site won’t benefit you.
Here’s the YWM world view in a nutshell:
YWM believes in--
·        being intentional about life and choices
·        taking personal responsibility for choices
·        using safe, green, non-toxic products
·        eating REAL food
·        using alternative health treatments and nutritional supplements (when appropriate) before taking drugs or racing to the doctor
·        God and the Christian Holy Book (Bible).
 
Here’s to building your own outrageously satisfying life!

We support causes that benefit women
YourWebMom’s goal is to make a difference in the lives of women …both today and in the future. As a result, a portion of YWM profits is donated to causes that benefit women. Currently, the organization benefiting from your support of this site is:
City of Hope’s Walk for Hope
Hope is on the horizon. Boosted by the unstoppable spirit of thousands of committed supporters in eight cities, City of Hope's women’s cancers research, treatment and education programs are leading the way to women's cures.
Each year, more than 250,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancers unique to women. As a group, these are the most commonly diagnosed cancers among women, making up about 37 percent of new cases in 2009.
·        Breast
·        Cervical
·        Endometrial
·        Ovarian
·        Gynecological
 
Have an idea for a deserving organization?
We periodically change which organization receives our donations. Would you like to suggest a worthy organization?
·        Must be non-profit/tax exempt
·        Must be national in scope
·        Must benefit women
 
Email your suggestions: YWMTheMom@yourwebmom.com
