In our latest episode, we are talking about mom community — what is it and how to find it. We always hear the importance of finding a village, but where is it?!

Local mom and director of the community program, Building Better Moms (BBM), Susan Brown, discusses the benefits of community, the importance of authenticity, and different types and seasons of friends. Susan talks to us about how to find community in Kansas City.

We are not meant to do this alone, and we hope you find encouragement in today’s episode!

Meet Susan Brown

As a full time mom of three, Susan Brown is passionate about finding and building community. Susan is the director of Building Better Moms, an organization that meets each woman wherever she is in her motherhood journey as moms learn, grow and serve together. Whether it’s is in your neighborhood, your place of worship, your kids’ school or the aisles of Aldi, we are meant to do life together. Susan loves to talk through the barriers that prevent us from making real connections and help us find an authentic community to make motherhood more fulfilling, more enriching, and more fun.

What We’re Loving In Kansas City

Strang Park 

Go check out Overland Park’s first all inclusive park! This park has literally everything and is great for all ages. It features a 30-foot tower and slide, a sensory tunnel, climbing cargo nets, in-ground trampolines and more.  It also has a separate toddler playground featuring whimsical Farmers’ Market-themed play structures and a nature play area, basketball and tennis courts, restrooms, and a gaming promenade with cornhole, checkerboard tables and oversized lawn chess.

Conveniently located right by the Central Resource Johnson County Library, McDonald’s (with an indoor play place), and Bear Necessities Coffee Bar — need I say more? Make a day of it and you will not regret it!
