September Meeting Recap:
A FIERCE FLOURISHING Kick off Party!
Our meeting started off with an adorable and amusing video of our kiddos explaining what MOPS is, and then we introduced a new member of our Anderson MOPS group, Jan Gropp. Jan will be our Mentor Mom this year, and we super excited to add this wise woman to our group! She has two grown sons, 6 grandkids, and has worked alongside her husband in ministry for many years. Jan is kind, caring, and Christ-like and is available to our MOPS mamas for conversation and prayer. Welcome Jan!
We also reviewed some of our basic MOPS policies. If you need a refresher on Moppets childcare policies, click here. If you need info about finances or a scholarship form, click here. And as always, please contact us with any questions. We are here to help!
Abbey shared a devotional encouraging us to embrace being the "World's Okayest Mom" and talked about how we are free to FLOURISH FIERCELY when we stop comparing ourselves to others and our idea of the perfect mom. (click here to read the devotional)
And we watched a video from MOPS International's Mandy Arioto where she talked about "feasting" and how she realized one day that she couldn't think of a single thing she enjoyed anymore. She decided to practice delighting in the things around her and began to feast as much as she could on life -- living extravagantly, giving generously & being consumed with delight. What would our lives look like if we adopted the attitude that God delights in our delight?
We finished the meeting with some discussion/craft time at our tables - always a great combo - and made decorative blocks that can be stacked and rotated for each season! Perfect for some of us moms who want seasonal decor change with minimal effort! (check it out here)
If you weren't able to make it to our September meeting, we sure do hope to see you next month! xo!
