April 14 Meeting - Bumper Cars

Our April 14th meeting went much better than I think we anticipated. This meeting happened to fall on spring break for one of the schools, and our local preschools. So with our group having childcare only available for ages newborn to 5, we expected not as many moms due to having older children at home. We had a great number and one new mom at that! Praise God! Our new mom also was our only birthday for April, so she was put on the spot just a bit. -But I don't think she minded:) Door prize winners were Diana Salsberry and Heather Barber. The speaker today was pastor Bruce Rzengota
Pastor Bruce is our lead pastor at Norwalk Alliance Church. It always is a blessing to hear what message he has to bring. Today was on the topic of conflict resolution. Identifying the weapons we use and how to disarm ourselves. I think many of us found this more helpful than they probably even realized. Without preschool going on that day, there was less rushing out early to grab kids and more discussion group time which was great!

Be sure not to miss our next meeting coming up on April 28, 2009 this is our SPA DAY and as Mothers of Preschoolers, we all could use a good day of pampering!

April Happenings

Well for those of you who were able to attend our last meeting, what a special one it was! I was so moved and touched by our mentor mom Diana's testimony. I love to listen to how God has worked in our lives and to hear the story of how people are brought closer to him. The stories are all so unique whether you went through a life changing event or you were raised to know him and had a realization of his awesomeness. It was such a blessing to hear all the GOD moments that soo many of you volunteered to share! THANKS BE TO GOD!!!!

"I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. John 5:24

It is April and Springtime! What a wonderful time to be a mother of a preschooler! With new life and lessons all around, enjoy this special time with your families as we get ready to celebrate Easter.
