    MomCo June 2024

    I struggled with how much credit these women gave me. Being used to low expectations, I worried about finding my comfortable place. But there was something that kept me around. Maybe the seasons of rest, of distance, of absence, they gave me courage to draw near again. It has been obvious to me that I…

    Lideri MomCo

    Așa-i ca ți-e oarecum incomod sa te prezinți ca lider?  In România sunt 100 de coordonatori de grupe și peste 1000 de mame care participă la întâlnirile MomCo.  Am crescut foarte repede și e timpul să reflectăm puțin la rolul nostru ca lideri.  “Cine vrea să fie întâi între voi să slujească “ a zis…

    In good company

    Introverts don’t try hard to be part of many groups. But something they do is follow through with what they committed to do. They get stuff done but have to rely on others to see the introverts who don’t advertise their skills. In the work place we learn to document what we do, market our…

    MomCo Iris Team

    When I got promoted to Lead Creative, I had been a stand-in Lead for a few months to try out the role. I was the youngest in the group. But though I don’t like telling people what to do, my colleagues and managers believed I’m the right person for the role. My enthusiasm, communication skills,…

  • Talent (measurement)

    Talent (measurement)

    The talent (Ancient Greek: τάλαντον, talanton, Latin talentum) was a unit of weight used in the ancient world, often used for weighing gold and silver, but also mentioned in connection with other metals, ivory, and frankincense. One evening I was re-telling the girls, the Bible story with the talents. They asked me what fructifying means, putting to good use, enhancing, growing,…

  • Being enough and anxiety

    Being enough and anxiety

    When you don’t register at a mind and heart level that you are enough, you keep giving to the point of depletion, which state only confirms how limited you are and that in fact you are not enough. But God’s spirit in us is enough. Humility protects us from trying to be more and do…

  • Women together

    Women together

    We simplified the decor and the drama of booking a guest speaker and focused on getting to know each other, building community sharing and listening, while learning something new in the process. We sometimes get lost on the artificial meeting focus, but hospitality is about helping women feel welcomed and safe, not through gifts or…

  • Naming that small fox

    Naming that small fox

    This weekend I got to read and be encouraged by a blog post and it made me reflect further on my own life. A wise woman builds her house, does not destroy it with her own hands.  A seed of doubt was planted many seasons ago in my heart. In darkness and humidity, it sprouted…

  • Pofta de scris. Poftă de joacă.

    Pofta de scris. Poftă de joacă.

    Este o superputere sa te identifici cu alții. Sa simți ca nu ești singur si in cele mai copleșitoare trăiri. Toata viața am avut un soi de încredere înrădăcinată in conectarea interumana, care m-a ghidat in multe decizii grele. Am fost mereu convinsă ca daca eu simt într-un anume fel, si alții au fost pe…

  • Despre comunitate

    Despre comunitate

    Vulnerabilitatea este inconfortabilă. Dar când ne lăsăm cunoscute sau cunoaștem pe cele de lângă noi dincolo de aparențe, începem să gustăm savoarea apartenentei.  Astfel, printre altele, așa ne împrietenim cu disconfortul. Pășind în lumină. Să ne aerisim mintea și inima. Să ne lăsăm văzute, și prin imperfecțiunile noastre să lumineze Isus și felul in care…

  • Nervous about a meeting 

    Nervous about a meeting 

    As I anticipate how the meeting will go, I visualize wha I will say and how it will be received. Often times I think I picture myself more captivating than I end up being. My self confidence is founded in experience but I think it undermines my focus a bit.  I was just thinking about…

  • Public speaking

    Public speaking

    I have had countless oral exams. I have taught hundreds of classes at Apple (daily practice and the technical topic made it easy). I have shared in front of 300+ people and hosted conferences and tried my very best to hone this skill. It doesn’t just one day click and you never need to prepare.…
