Park Operations

Hello ladies! I am so excited and honored to be one of your MOPS coordinator’s again this year. I hope to get to know you all a bit better and help you through your “adventure” of mothering young children.

Speaking of adventure, life is an adventure as is motherhood. Lately the “roller coaster” that life is taking me on is one I call busyness….which leads to stress….which leads to depression….which leads to a lack of spiritual bonding with God. Many of you may find yourselves on the same “roller coaster”. How can we stop the whirl wind we find ourselves in and get off the ride of busyness? Matthew 11:28-30 says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” WOW! Doesn’t that sound amazing?! It makes me feel calm, peaceful, rested just by reading it. All God asks is that we come to Him….spend time with Him in prayer, worship Him by song, be with Him in solitude, and He will give us rest. As mothers of preschoolers we never get enough physical rest, and if you are like me, busyness keeps us from having spiritual rest. I challenge you to find time for God and see how much rest He will give you. Let Him carry your burdens for you and see how much lighter you will feel. I pray that you will all feel a bit more refreshed and rested after being here today as well. May God bless you all!

Because Mothering Matters,

Our new MOPS year is off to a great start. Besty Kniffin opened the year as a guest speaker. She humored us as well as challenged us to understand what our children are teaching us as well as what we are teaching them.
Our second meeting featured a devotional about friendship and flowers given by mentor mom Lori Neuberger. She also taught us how to make a fall flower basket.
We're excited about some of the up coming events we're having at MOPS. The fall auction will be coming up this month. There will be more details coming at our meeting next week. The steering team members will also be sharing about the MOPS Convention in Dallas, Texas that they recently attended. You won't want to miss out. And last but not least our creative activities leader will be teaching us how to make another craft. I'm sure it will be lots of fun.
We're looking forward to seeing all of you there.
