Moms on a Mission: ENVISION 2016 Vision Board Party

At the start of each new year, we all make a bunch of resolutions that we probably won’t follow. Ready for real change, women and moms gathered at Hope City Empowerment Center in Brooklyn, NY for MyMommyVents’ first ever vision board party, ENVISION 2016.

ENVISION 2016 marked the kickoff of Mommunity Meetings, MyMommyVents’ smaller, community based events. Designed to facilitate open sharing in a more intimate setting, Mommunity Meetings are focused on providing small group support.

ENVISION 2016 encouraged women to realize their dreams with a vision board. You may have heard of vision boards before–but they’re much more than a passing trend. I shared the story of how a woman named Lucinda Cross changed her life through vision boards. After making one wrong decision, she found herself dealing with the consequences. Determined to encourage herself, Lucinda began cutting out pictures of colleges, cheering crowds, and women in business suits carrying briefcases. Vision boards took Lucinda on an amazing journey to the pages of Essence magazine and the Today Show, where she showed Tamron Hall how to create her own vision board.

A vision board is a tool to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal. It’s a visual representation of what you want for your life that you to define your aspirations, visually reinforce them, and keep your intentions focused.


I reminded the women that vision boards are more than just simply cutting out pictures–we discussed the power of intention, and the role it can play in our lives.

Conversation flowed freely as we talked about our families, jobs, and vacations. Over magazines and a light brunch, we cut and pasted our dreams for the new year.

    I was nervous about being among moms, like I said while I was there, my dog is the only one I am a mom to. When it comes to being a mother, I know it’s all about God’s will and I pray that I stay in that place often. When I got there everyone was so friendly and supportive of one another, it was a pleasant experience. And my vision board is on my desk. I have plans to fill the board up very soon.
