GRACE TALKS | The juggle, the struggle and the joy of motherhood

JOIN OUR GRACE COMMUNITY OF LIKEMINDED WOMEN

You can have it all but not all at the same time” - Dame Quentin Bryce

We’re thrilled to announce the date of our next GRACE TALKS event to coincide with Mother’s Day! And even more excited to say The Grace Tales team is coming to Brisbane for the first time to host a very special and insightful brunch on Wednesday 16th May with a woman who we deeply admire – we live by her words above and she’s one of One of the most admired mentors for Australian women- the Honourable Dame Quentin Bryce.

Excited? We’re ecstatic! She’ll be sharing her words of wisdom with us on everything from motherhood to career and more. We also can't wait to meet our Queensland readers.

Bring your mother – this is a great Mother’s Day present – or grab a girlfriend for a fun morning out with like-minded mothers.

Brunch will be served and there’s a fantastic goodie bag to take away (let’s just say you won’t be needed new beauty products anytime soon). You’ll also get to meet our friends at Little Kisses who have been creating beautiful baby hampers, clothes and toys for style-savvy mums since 2001 (hint: Prince George received one).

About Dame Quentin Bryce

As a mother and grandmother, Dame Quentin Bryce is a role model and mentor to women at every stage of their lives. She was Australia's first female Governor-General, holding office from September 2008 until March 2014, and values and encourages women’s capacity to form strong and enduring bonds of friendship, intellectual and emotional enrichment, and mutual support in their roles within the family, workplace and community.

Quentin Bryce was Australia’s twenty-fifth Governor-General. As the first woman to take up the office, she remains a pioneer in contemporary Australian society, and yet one who brings more than forty years of experience in reform, community building and leadership to the role.

In her years as Governor-General, she wrote no less than 50 letters a week to Australians from all ranks of life. She wrote longhand because she has always done so, and because she believes handwritten letters contain an intimacy that otherwise can't be attained. Recently, some of those letters - those from ordinary Australians and those from her own hand – were published in a handsome book simply called "Dear Quentin - Letters of a Governor-General".

Quentin Bryce and her husband, Michael have two daughters and three sons, and ten grandchildren. Children have always been the focus of her life: “Whatever else I might have been doing, children, not just my own children but all children, have been at the centre.

And she’s passionate about mothers connecting with other mothers: “Through our mothering, it’s the friendships and connections we make, when we’re really depending on each other. We all have ups and downs, worries and anxieties, and all mothers need to be reassured and encouraged.”

WANT TO HEAR MORE? We can't wait! Come and meet this extraordinary role model and also connect with our Grace community.
