What is MOM Matters?
Our group is an open, accepting place for mothers in the surrounding communities and our church to connect with one another. In this group we hope members will experience personal growth, practical help, and spiritual hope. In our meetings we will embrace the journey of motherhood with all of its ups and downs by laughing, crying and encouraging each other with the help of our seasoned mentors. We want women to journey alongside one another and to help each other be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find their identity.
Sometimes we don’t feel like we matter with the hustle and bustle of daily life. We need to realize we do. We meet to encourage and support one another. For the 2015 – 2016 year we will be discussing the following parenting topics: Children’s Safety Matters, Adoption Matters, Special Needs Children Matters, Discipline Matters, Finance Matters, Health Matters, Cooking Matters, Nutrition Matters and Household Matters.
Some of these meetings will be more discussion-focused while others will be enrichment- focused. The enrichment meetings may include a craft, music, conversation time, cooking, etc. We will have a Moms’ Night Out every other month. Additionally, there will be playdates outside the group, so we can build relationships with one another. Lastly, we will have online support through our private Facebook Page. All this for FREE. Mom Matters is a part of Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) and MomsNext network.
