Here we are, about ready to kick off a new year together at MOPS! This year’s theme is Be You, Bravely and I can’t wait to embrace this with all of you! What does it mean to accept who I am, how I am uniquely created and step out in courage? What does that even look like? We all wear so many hats in our relationships as mother, sister, friend, daughter, wife, colleague, neighbor….the list goes on and on. If we can be more brave in our daily life, how much of a difference will that make in our own hearts, and in the world around us?! There is no better way to build up courage than in the context of community…at MOPS!
MOPS at Big Valley Grace is an amazing community of moms! We are all incredibly different, with different families and different backgrounds, and we come together and encourage each other, and embrace the differences amongst us. I love that SO much! I love that we have a place to come and hear that we aren’t alone, and that someone else understands how it is mothering little kids. This is a very special and difficult time of parenting, and mothers with young children are statistically the most lonely group. I hope that your time with MOPS this year brings you to a new place in your life; that it brings you to a place with real relationships, with a new perspective on life, and to know more about the loving God that created us all!
I’m so excited to see old friends and meet new ones!! Are you ready for Tuesday!?? We will have a great time, meeting your table, learning about what’s going to happen this year, meeting your new leaders and possibly winning a raffle! We can’t wait to see you then!
