Working Mom

Real Talk

The Annual Virtual Summit for Working Moms to empower and equip them to balance work and life, for real.

The Realities of Work & Life Balance

Working moms are no longer in a season of doubt, feeling stuck, and not taking back ownership of themselves. In fact, they are in a season of evolution, rebirth, and development of whom they are destined to be. But, how do working moms embrace this new season? How do working moms confidently pursue their new outlook on life? It's time for Real Talk! 

Real Talk is a Virtual Summit dedicated to increasing the Advocacy, Education, and Promotion of Work-Life Balance for Christian Working Mothers who are overwhelmed with all that's on their plate and are looking for work-life balance solutions. Community leaders and experts join together to provide tools, support, and resources to create and strengthen the community of working mothers.

 

The 2022 theme was, Becoming You - The Woman of Inner Strength & Beauty, where working moms talked about their rebirth and evolution of: 

  • breaking free from the old version of themselves

  • reprioritizing what is most important to them

  • reevaluating relationships and their careers

 

For the last two years, working mothers have had to adapt to being teachers to their children, work harder to nurture the relationship with their husbands, reevaluate their careers and what they really want and how to achieve it, and so much more. Can you relate?

Have you recognized that the things, places, and/or people you once valued years ago, are no longer valuable to you now? Have you struggled with how to accept the new you? Have you struggled with feeling isolated because your views have changed from previous years? Then this year's virtual summit is for you.

 

Have you asked yourself the following questions: 

 

  • What do I do with my new beliefs? 

  • What do I do with my new desires?

  • What do I do with the maturity I've gained in the last two years? 

  • How do I recognize whom I am becoming?

Working Moms don't always take the time for themselves. They have competing priorities and never want to disappoint those they love. BUT, by neglecting your personal development and time for yourself, you will not be able to fully experience who you are Becoming and live in freedom, peace, and joy.

Hi, I'm Latika and I've been where you are...

As a working mom, I have juggled managing my home, family, and career, while trying to understand who I am. I know that each of us has to mentally, physically, and spiritually grow, but I didn't know how to recognize, accept, believe in myself, and pursue the growth. But, it wasn't until I begin studying and spending more time with God that I learned that He wanted more of me and from me, and that I was entering into a season of Becoming. 

I felt alone; I felt like no one knew the struggle I was going through letting go of past desires and moving into a new direction in my life. Do you feel the same? Do you feel alone? 

It wasn't until I stood firm on whom I was becoming and began telling those close to me how I was evolving that I gained the freedom, peace, and joy to be me.

This year's virtual summit will be the conversations, epiphanies, and more you need to walk into this season of Becoming the Woman of Inner Strength and Beauty - the season God has been waiting for you to enter. 

By attending Real Talk, you will gain access to:

  1. Work & Life Balance Workbook 

  2. Purchase books, apparel, and services from speakers 

  3. Giveaways for Personal and Professional Development 

  4. Digital Swag Bag 

Real Talk was and continues to be the Life-Changing event you need!

We all will experience a season of Becoming; but, when will you become obedient and embrace theis season? This is your time to Become the Woman of Inner Strength & Beauty
