These mom group conversation starters are a great way to connect with other moms!
We’ve all been in that awkward situation where you’re meeting another mom and you just don’t how to naturally get the conversation going. As a result, it’s easy to brush off the need for friendship and just tell yourself, “It’s just too hard to find other moms to hang out with.”
Getting plugged into a community of other women who are going through the same season of life is so important. It allows you to have an outlet to vent, hear really good advice, and learn that “it’s not just you!” Many moms are dealing with a lot of the same struggles and it’s comforting when we can sit down with someone and be on the “I totally get it” level.
One of my favorite books lately where I feel like the authors are my BFFs and “get me” are the Midnight Mom Devotional gals on Facebook! They have a book out of 365 devotionals that are bite-sized yet POWERFUL that you can grab from Amazon.
As a mom, you’re no stranger to days of stress, loneliness, and even feelings of defeat. This list of mom group conversation starters will help get to know each other better and will give you an outlet to share more about yourself!
These questions were created to be used in all settings such as meeting up with a friend for coffee, catching up with a bestie over the phone, ice breakers for a party or gathering, or even when you need to plan a women’s retreat. You’ll find everything from basic biographical questions to more personal questions and also some funny questions.
Feel free to jump around the list and go in any order you prefer. While these questions are intended for mom groups, they work just as well for many social settings not just limited to mom groups.
