Connecting at The Mom Con + giveaway

5 years ago I started the Pgh Momtourage to plan city-wide playdates for the specific purpose of connecting with moms around the city. Sure, our kids have fun at the many great events we enjoy, but a big part of why we exist is for moms to meet and build friendships with each other. Sometimes moms find themselves struggling or wondering how to navigate this mom-world they exist within, but we are all stronger within a community of friends.
This is exactly why I am honored & grateful to be a part of the Mom Con team! 2 years ago, a local mom named Natalie Kavacic, had a vision of creating a conference in Pittsburgh specifically for moms. The Mom Con was a result of her vision, a conference by moms & for moms! We encourage moms in Pittsburgh and all the surrounding areas to come join us for this special event to not only take a break from your typical day-to-day, but to meet & be encouraged by connecting with moms from around the city. I am honored to be a speaker and will be sharing tips for connecting with moms & building friendships. I would love to meet you there!

One of the featured speakers that I am very excited to hear is Rachel Martin, who writes at her website Finding Joy. She focuses on intentional joy-filled living and motherhood. If you find yourself feeling down or discouraged, her Dear Mom letters are excellent reads.

Do you ever find yourself struggling to be joyful in the midst of what can be the mundane days of motherhood? Shaping, molding, & investing in these little lives can be some of our most rewarding work as well as the most pull-out-your-hair moments! It does take a village of encouragement, listening ears, and advice. So, come, join us at The Mom Con and we hope you walk away refreshed & inspired!
