Becoming 2018 | April 20 – 21, 2018

Mark your Calendar for Becoming 2018.

Hosted once again in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC on Friday and Saturday, April 20 – 21, 2018

We are so excited to invite you to join us for the seventh annual Becoming Conference.

Lake Junaluska - becoming conference

Becoming 2018 is a weekend designed to encourage and inspire women to live intentionally by becoming more creative, purposeful, and frugal. As women, many of us desire to be more intentional with our time and financial resources; more intentional with our family and homes, but aren’t sure how to make that happen.

As we gather from all walks of life, we will tackle some of those day to day issues that sometimes seem mundane and give you a new sense of magic. Our desire is that you will leave, not only refreshed, but encouraged, empowered, and motivated with the practical and tangible ideas you have received.

From encouragement in our homes and families, meal planning, hospitality, home decor, DIY, handlettering/chalkboard lettering, and more, Becoming 2018 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.

As we are bring together a number of talented speakers and bloggers, all who are passionate in their areas of expertise, they will instruct and inspire you on a number of topics.

With both large groups and smaller, interactive workshops, we want to ensure that you leave empowered with tools to enrich your life. It’s the boost I need each year to reengage my spirit on all things heart and home.

Hosted once again in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC on Friday and Saturday, April 20 – 21, 2018 we will be at the Lake Junaluska Conference and retreat center.

We will be adding the workshops and session descriptions as our time approaches, so pencil in the dates now.

Since managing money wisely is so important me, I have kept the cost of the conference as low as you will find anywhere.

Please note that you will need two separate registrations if you are planning on staying on-site.  You will purchase a separate Becoming Conference ticket ($55 which is the early bird price through October) which includes all of the break out sessions, special activities and the Ladies Night In, which can be done through this link, and then your choice of lodging and meals will need to be reserved directly through Lake Junaluska’s reservation center


Please see the Registration Details and break down of conference prices before you call to register. This is just an overview.

The mountains of NC are calling you. Come be a part of something new, unique and exciting. Join a room full of women whose desire is to Become More.

Turn off the TV, grab some girlfriends, and escape on a breathtaking getaway to Asheville’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

We are so excited to meet you, and enjoy this weekend with you.

Becoming More,

 Jen from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam

Registration Details and Breakdown of Prices

We look forward to seeing many of you April 20 – 21, 2018.

Conference tickets are now available right here. The Early Bird Conference tickets ($55) will be ordered online through Becoming, while all Housing and meals are purchased  by calling Lake Junalaska’s reservation desk. Call early for lodging choices.

** The Becoming Early Bird Ticket ($55 + eventbrite fee is through November 1) includes all Conference Breakout Sessions, as well as our Friday evening Ladies Night In activities and goodies.

Again, lodging and sit down meals are not included in that ticket price and are purchased separately through the conference center. Meal tickets include Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast and Saturday lunch: $36/unlimited buffet

You will reserve your lodging on a first come, first serve basis.  There is a large assortment of lodging choices  (see here) with everything from camp style bunk beds (least expensive), hotel rooms and even a few houses owned by Lake Junaluska to accommodate a large group of friends that want to come together.

All of our sessions will be held near the Terrace hotel. The campus is beautiful and a trolly is available at all times throughout your stay, so choosing higher end accommodations elsewhere on the property will not be a problem.

**If you do not know all of your roommates yet, you can still reserve a room, just make sure you call back later and add your roommates as you know them.

Our desire has always been to keep this as the most affordable conference available, so the more friends that share a room, the less the conference total will be. It will be at your discretion on how you want to share accommodations.

The flat rate hotel price for Terrace, Lambuth and Lakeside choices are as follows:

$140/night (if you room by yourself)

$70/night (share a room)
$46.66/night (three in room)
$35/night  (four in a room)

You are able to book an additional evening through the conference center if you want to come early or stay over till Sunday.

Prices vary based on the room type you request and how many are in a room (remember the more the merrier).

You may check out the different accommodations here.

To Register for your rooms beginning in September: 

-Call the reservations team at 800-222-4930 to make a reservation by phone. You can see the accommodations at The call center is open from 8 am – 5 pm, Monday through Friday. Mention that you are coming to the Becoming Women’s Conference.  You will be asked to place a deposit equal to the first night’s rental (typically $140) to hold your room. Lodging deposit is fully refundable up to one month before the event.

For those planning their travels, conference registration begins at 2:00 on Friday the 20th, and you can check into your room starting at 3:00 pm. If you are attending any optional workshops, you will be able to register as early as noon,  so you are ready for your workshops.

Friday evening begins with dinner at 5:00. Our main session begins at 6:30 pm and once that concludes, we will have one breakout session Friday night before the girls night in event.  The fun runs solid through Saturday until 6:00 pm.
