Do you want to be the best Mom possible? Do you want a place to be real and honest? Do you want to be with other moms who understand what you’re going through? Then MOPS and MOMSnext is the place for you!
MOPS is for moms with children birth through Kindergarten MOMSnext is for moms with children in grade school and beyond. Both groups are a dynamic, inviting environment where women can come just as they are to build friendships, be encouraged by each other and gain practical parenting strategies. Moms get together to share food, laughter and to hear inspiring speakers. While moms are in our MOPS meetings, their children are lovingly cared for in the MOPS Kids program. Please note that there is no MOPS Kids program for MOMSnext. You will experience authentic community, mothering support, personal growth and spiritual hope, all to help you be the best mom possible.
Here’s a little bit about what we’ll discussing:
Never let the fire go out … When you hope, be joyful. When you suffer, be patient. When you pray, be faithful. Share with God’s people who are in need. Welcome others into your homes. – Romans 12:11-13 (NIrV)
This is a year we will tend the fire in our hearts. We will stop inhaling the fumes of our mistakes that tell us we are not enough, not a good enough mom, not pretty enough, not brave enough, not smart enough, not wealthy enough. Instead, we will choose to tend our God-given fire. We will love our children with an all-consuming love and use our words to warm the world. We will hold the torch up high and shed light on what matters most.
When our homes feel cold, we’ll light a fire.
When a friend has lost her spark, we’ll fan her flame.
When the world seems dark, we will be an ember of hope.
In order to do this we will:
LIVE EXPECTANTLY: This is the bold reminder to think about what could go right.
SURRENDER DARINGLY: This is the bold reminder to let things go.
BREATHE FREELY: This is the bold reminder to let yourself be loved.
MAY THIS BE THE YEAR YOU FIND YOUR FIRE
