Our MOPS group is a dynamic, inviting environment where moms can come just as they are to build friendships, be encouraged, and gain practical parenting strategies. All while their children are lovingly cared for in the MOPPETS program.

Jan 20 Recap

Wow! What a day of records!!

We had a record number of ladies attend the meeting...which also meant that we had record numbers in our MOPPETS. woohoo! (Not that it's all about numbers, but as I said before, it blesses us that each of you girls come back to the meetings.) It warms my heart each time that your faces walk through those double doors...the familiar ones that I can call by name and the new faces that I get to welcome. You girls make my day!

As promised, we'll have 8 tables set up next meeting, so remember to invite your friends.

A HUGE shout-out to each of you that helped in cleaning up (stacking a chair, clearing a table, rolling a table, etc) record time. It was done 20 minutes early because of all of the helping hands. THANK YOU!

Today's meeting was about Fear - the fear that grips us and doesn't want to let go. Mo Mydlo shared her testimony of how her early years of mothering were overcome with such fear that it occupied her mind 100%. Her life was changed when she met a friend that invited her to Bible Study and she found her "Prince of Peace" - Jesus! Mo's transparency with our group today is nothing short of a blessing. Thank you, Mo, for sharing your story.

I hope that each of you are realizing the fears that grip you and you are doing your best to turn to Jesus.

I'm looking forward to our next meeting on Feb. 3rd. See you there.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving kind words!

When my teens were wee, I attended MOPS meetings and loved the fellowship! So glad to hear your meetings are going well.
