Grants are available for mothers who otherwise cannot afford to attend "The Motherlode Seminar."

Linda Eyre and four other Utah woman who wrote a book called "An Emotional First Aid Kit for Mothers" are putting on a day-long workshop Saturday, Feb. 21, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, Main and South Temple, Salt Lake City. Royalties from the book will help defray the cost of the seminar, which includes lunch.Eyre says there are plenty of mothers who are under a huge load. The seminar leaders plan to invite all mothers who are staying at the Ronald McDonald House and who have children at Primary Children's Hospital. "We will have speakers, breakout sessions, prizes and laughter," Eyre said. "Moms will be able to get a little break. It will be an emotional day spa."

To register, call 581-0112, by Feb. 18. Those who can afford it will be asked to pay $25.
