Leading Moms: Where Passion and Motherhood Come Together

Events & Travel
2

As mothers we are each so unique, yet we all strive for the same things, confident in our life choices and being loving mothers. With our goals and passions in life aligned we can join together and learn from each other, talking about where we started and the journey we are on to get to where we want to be. Some may be at the beginning of their journey, still in discovery of who we are, while others have found their passions and are living their dreams and being a confident mother all at the same time. This is what I love about Vancouver’s Leading Moms events, connectivity.

It is important to learn from those ahead of us, those that have paved their path and can share knowledge on how they got there. On September 23, 2016 I am so excited to have the opportunity to connect, listen and learn from strong inspiring mothers during the Leading Moms event at the Vancity Theatre in downtown Vancouver.

Last year I had the opportunity to attend my first Leading Moms event and I was left encouraged, motivated and inspired. This event presented by Crisp Media (producer of Vancouvermom.ca) is something I have been looking forward to this year, take a peak at last year’s video as it recaps highlights and gives you the best idea of what Leading Mom’s is all about.

This year for the fifth annual Leading Moms event the theme is based around childhood and we will be hearing from some of the most talented and accomplished women in Vancouver, including:

  1. Miyoung Lee: Host and Producer at CBC News Vancouver
    “Multiple Webster nominee and RTNDA winner, Miyoung Lee rings in her fourteenth year with CBC as the host and producer of CBC Vancouver News at 11 p.m.” … continued.
  2. Tara Teng: TV Host, Miss World Canada 2012 and Human Rights Activist
    “Tara Teng is a TV host, Miss World Canada 2012, a human rights activist, and works with various organizations around the world to combat gender-based violence and human trafficking.” … continued
  3. Dr. Vanessa Lapointe: Registered Psychologist & Bestselling Author
    “A Huffington Post parenting blogger, author of the best-selling book Discipline without Damage: How to get your kids to behave without messing them up, founder of The Wishing Star Developmental Clinic, and a regularly invited media guest, contributor, and speaker, Dr. Vanessa is known for bringing a sense of nurturing understanding to all of her work.” …continued
  4. Erin Treloar: Founder, RAW Beauty Talks
    “Erin has interviewed over 200 women from across North America including Olympic gold-medalist, Jamie Anderson and Grammy award-winning artist, Colbie Caillat for RAW Beauty Talks, a special series that features women without make-up, Photoshop or filters.” … continued

plus a handful of other great speakers, all sharing their experiences and personal journeys through performance, video and intimate talks delivered straight from their hearts.

  • Just about to head to Whistler with this guy and so excited to spend some time just the two of us! It’s been a whhhiiilllleeeeeee
  • Part way through our lunch the kids started to bicker back and forth, creating a rather not-so-enjoyable moment for everyone. It's those moments that us as parents can make a difference, how we handle situations with our children allows them to learn and grow through our words and actions. We spoke about the importance of being kind and how much more enjoyable our time together is when we are all speaking respectfully and sharing. .

I then shared with the kids that that was exactly why I was taking a few pictures with our pizza, to share with others about the launch of @panago_pizza's 2nd annual Bullying Awareness and Prevention campaign. That Panago wanted to celebrate young people who are being kind and looking out for others in their communities. Our kids are learning everyday, it's our job to be great role models, encourage their kind behaviour and then celebrate them in their good choices. .

Do you want to take a minute to celebrate a child in your life? From now until Nov 25th Panago is asking for you to nominate a deserving youth and share a story them using compassion to drive change. Go to my stories for more info and the link to nominate #sponsored #asliceofnice
  • Hey 👋🏻 it’s kinda late... for some I suppose.. I’m usually up til midnight working away and wanted to hop on and share about my blog/small business journey. It was the start of this year that I really “proclaimed” this as my business and really felt so proud of what I’d created. It’s been A LOT of work to say the least but it’s brought so so much joy, opportunities and relationships. I love creating and sharing here, but most of all I love encouraging and connecting with YOU! Thanks for being here and for reading this. I think today I all the sudden realized we were in November and the end of the year is near. How did that happen?! If you made it through this little love note, share something about you below.. maybe how you discovered my blog/Instagram or what a goal is that you have? Excited to read through those comments in the AM.
  • That day we found a marble staircase and @juliechristinephotography made a fart joke. She gets me.
  • Proud mama moment. Sophie came home from kindergarten one afternoon reciting this Remembrance Day poem over and over. It’s pretty cute! Turn your sound on and listen too 😊❤️
  • This picture makes me melt. I set the camera on self-timer and wanted to get some action shots of the three of us working on the "do try this at home" section of the @guinnessworldrecords book. When I looked back at the captures and I saw Ezras very content grin, I just couldn't even. Seriously no words. It reminded me that our kids don't care how we show up (myself pictured with a messy bun & PJs), it's the time we put in that is remembered. •

#ad Thanks to @guinnessworldrecords for encouraging us to attempt one of their 5 maker challenges and seeing how much fun the kids had blowing up balloons and learning to make balloon dogs. After a few tries I completed on in 2 minutes, might not be the fastest time in the books, but we saw some good progress from my first attempt ha! If your kids love creating, reading about all sorts of random and crazy accomplishments then head to the blog and check out what's new in the Guinness World Records 2019 edition. #GWR2019
