Sometimes we need new eyes. A perspective shift that recalibrates our hearts to the rhythm of Godís goodness surrounding us. To tune our hearts to better hear the music of the divine echoing throughout this world. That we might let that goodness seep into our bones and into our hearts so we can remember what it feels like to flourish. We become more ourselves when we celebrate, rest and notice, and that looks a lot like flourishing. But this flourishing isnít the precious or exhausting kind. This is a fierce flourishing. It is a deep-in-your-guts experience of gratitude and hope compelling you to raise your hands and dance freer that you ever have before. It is a fierce protection of your most important moments, an invitation to rest and an opportunity to enjoy the people who are right in front of you. May this year unfold into radical expressions of your own unique Fierce Flourishing.
For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Isaiah 55:12
MOPS stands for "mothers of preschoolers" - but don't let that confuse you. MOPS is about meeting the needs of every mom of a child from conception through kindergarten. Being moms is what brings us together and allows us to build a community. The early years of being a mom are just as foundational to you as they are to your baby, and those years are filled with unique needs that other moms instinctively understand.
We meet two Thursdays a month from 9:30 - 11:30 am. Please contact Laura Gurganus at least one week prior to the meeting you would like to attend. Contact information is posted at the bottom of this web page.
