“Sparked!” was an impulse buy one night while I was reading through posts on Facebook. I ordered it through the Kickstarter page and was delighted to receive the game just at the end of 2016. This year, I’ve hosted a game night, approximately every other week and it has been such a joy to connect with other women in my life through this game. It creates a platform for connection that is sorely needed in an age where social media seems to prevent us from being present, in the same room for one another. It’s been an opportunity to engage with other mothers as women, over discussions that get beyond the mundane playground conversations. The game fosters meaningful connection, and allows women to hold space for each other – through laughter, tears, and awkwardness. The game reminds women of who they are, that they are important and have important knowledge to share with each other, and helps to give them space to process things that are important in their lives and to connect with what brings them joy. I think we all need to be refreshed to bring energy to those in our lives that we care about, and to bring our voices to what truly matters. We create connections and resource bridges every time we play.
