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.

MOPS this Tuesday and Wednesday!!!

I don't know about you, but I am so excited for fall to come!!  The past couple of weeks were such a tease, weren't they?!  :o)  It will be here before we know it!!  Of course with fall comes those addicting fall treats, namely CANDY CORN!  Geez.... I need help!! :o)

It is time for our Oct. 19th & 20th meetings!  WOO HOO!  I was so blessed at our last meeting by Michele's talk on "soul sista's"!!  I can't wait to explore MOM-ology some more this week, by looking at our personalities and finding out how they fit into our strengths and weaknesses as moms!  If you want to prepare for the meeting you can visit to  take your free personality assessment !!  (you can do it after too and apply what you learn that way!)

We are going to have a "dress up" kind of day at MOPS this week!!!  In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, MOPS at Real Life is going "pink"!!  Find any pink you can find and support the cause!!  Also our MOPPETS team would like your little ones to come in NON SCARY costumes-- their lesson is about not being afraid of people because they are different!  You don't have to buy a costume... show us your creativity from what you have laying around the house!!  :o)

As stated on the blog... we are so blown away by your commitment to outreach and giving back!  Our stash for our Homeless Care Packages is growing, but we still need some more specific items brought in: (this is the last meeting for this outreach!!)

Tooth paste
Lip balm
food - stuff that can be kept in the car
sewing kits
band aids

Don't forget ... if you are planning on bringing in some "pre-school" snacks, stickers, etc. for our Fall Festival, this is the last week to bring that stuff in!!

Lastly... I challenge you to be a part of MOPS' mission!!  NO MOM ALONE!!  Invite someone to come to MOPS with you!  It might be the best invite you ever extend and could potentially change someone's life!!

Have a great weekend and we will see you this tues/weds.!!!
