MOPS


This morning, I had a MOPS leadership meeting at church! I am so excited about MOPS starting back next week. This year I am one of the table leaders as well as coordinating crafts for our monthly meetings. (No, I'm not crafty but I am going to pretend to be! Ha!)

Our first meeting is next Wednesday, September 8th. Our speaker for that meeting is going to be Michelle Duggar. I am really excited about hearing her speak!

If you live in NWA and would like to be apart of our MOPS group, we would love to have you join! You do not have to be a member of our church or of any church to attend. It's open to anyone! It's a wonderful time to connect with other moms of preschoolers. We meet the 2nd Wednesday of each month. To read more about this program or to register, click here. If you do register to attend, please make sure you also send an email to the email address provided to register for childcare. We want to make sure that there is plenty of childcare staff on hand to care for our sweet children while we are meeting.

If you do not live in NWA but are interested in joining a MOPS group, then you can visit the MOPS International website here to check for local groups in your area. It is a great way to meet and connect with other moms that live near you!

I'm curious, are any of you involved in a MOPS group in your area?

I am SO STINKING EXCITED about MOPS...and hearing Michelle Duggar!

Oh, and sorry about you being the only adult at the kids table-but really, it was Jillian sitting at the kids table and you were just there with her. (c: Haha.

You are in for a treat! We attended their home church once when they invited us and she is just so kind and encouraging. The whole family is absolutely precious!

I love MOPS! I was part of chartering our group in NE Alabama a little over 2 years ago. This is my first year as discussion leader, and I can't wait for it to start!

I could write a long post as to how much I love MOPS! :) I am starting my 3rd year on the leadership team as a table leader.
How fun that Michelle Duggar is coming to speak!
I hope you'll share your crafts with us each month :)
Blessings!

I am part of an awesome MOPS group here in TN! Since my husband is in the Army and we move a lot, it has been the biggest blessing for me to be able to connect with other women :-)

Nancy said...

You'll have to post all about it! I love the way the Duggar's are so simple & really remember what is important in teaching kids & the everyday knowledge they give them (cleaning, cooking, etc.) Hope you are feeling good!!

Colton's Mommy said...

There is a small MOPS group here that we went to, but Colton got kicked out for biting a litle boy--not out of anger or frustration, but out of excitement--he gets excited to see other kids and at that time, had no verbal skills to communicate.

The Allens said...

Yes! I was involved in Tyler. We moved after the semester ended this spring, so I'll be starting a new group this month in Grapevine. I do fundraisers for MOPS groups. I am doing one now for a group in Melissa, Texas that is required to pay for their own childcare. I think MOPS is wonderful.

I love MIchelle Duggar! What an awesome family she has!

I am in MOPS in Wisconsin. (I started following your blog from Kelly's...I don't think I have ever commented before.) I really enjoy the night away to connect with other moms. I think our first meeting is about Love & Logic.

YES! I go to my first MOPS meeting next Friday! Can't wait!!!

Heather said...

I am doing the craft for my MOPS group too! We are in the small town of Warrensburg, Missouri, just outside of Kansas City. I think MOPS is a great ministry. Hope to see some of your crafts on here. I may need to copy them! :-)

Katie said...

So jealous that you get to hear Michelle Duggar!!!

KatyBug said...

I went to my first MOPS meeting last week and really liked it. This is my first child so I am very nervous about getting to know other moms, how silly is that! :)

Jessica@The Southern Belle Baby said...

How awesome! I love the Duggars, that is going to be amazing. Make sure to tell us all about that!

Nash Family said...

I am involved in MOPS in Hurst, Texas. I love it and will be a table leader this year. Being in MOPS last year really helped me survive a lot of huge transitions into motherhood and I was so glad for the support!

I love your blog!!

I am a Coordinator at MOPS, in Littleton, CO! Would love to hear Michelle Duggar speak, how exciting!

Hautemama said...

I'm a mom to an 11 yr old and 9 yr old in Oklahoma so I guess I'm out but I realllllly want to meet Michelle Duggar-what a kind spirit she has!
When I had my youngest, we bought my oldest son a baby doll and he would show everyone the baby that just came out of his belly-too cute!

Kimberley said...

Hi there! I have been following your sweet family for a while, so I thought I would come out of hiding. :) I read a lot of the blogs from ladies in NWA because I too live here (Bville). I would love to do MOPS just to meet other moms and make friends, but I work so that's a bummer. I look forward to your recap of Michelle Duggar. :)
