A NEW SEASON

MOPS of Newnan - New Season

I’m sitting on my patio with shade from the trees and umbrella watching my almost five year old play in the lake. I don’t know where the time has gone or how I’ve come to this day where it’s time to tell you about our new year.

Reflecting on my years at MOPS of Newnan, I can’t help but share how blessed I have been. Honestly when I discovered MOPS, I was a mom who had lost her identity. I struggled with a sense of fashion, leaving the house, socializing my boy and especially making new friends. I was a mess!

I wouldn’t exactly call myself fashionable today, but I do feel that I have found myself again. The confidence to accept a leadership role here has helped redevelop the strong woman I once was before motherhood. In the past year, I have helped coordinate MOPS of Newnan’s Summer Bible Study and the 2018-19 MOPS season. I have survived the first year of my son’s education – life changes BIG when they start school. And I’ve managed my time wisely enough to fit in freelance web development allowing me to contribute to my family’s finances again.

I’m not sharing these things in search of recognition, but to help you find yourself in my story.  I want you accept where you are today, make choices to advance your tomorrow and find confidence in the best future you can imagine!

Now, that we are entering the last year Kala Arrington and I will lead MOPS of Newnan as Coordinators, we want to introduce you to the newest leadership team that will make it all happen this coming year. Are you ready?

We are excited to announce our next leadership team and share what impact it will make. Are you ready!?

As with most organizations, there is a limited number of membership seats. MOPS of Newnan is no different, but we are very excited to share with you that we have 16 new seats available this year thanks to the moms who have volunteered to adopt a table as Discussion Group Leaders. So without further ado, let’s name our team of Discussion Group Leaders.

Isn’t this exciting? We are now capable of hosting 12 full tables of mamas who need each other. I am, personally, super proud of what this leadership team is already doing behind the scenes; as proud, is my lovely Co-Coordinator, Kala Arrington. And I don’t think we need any special recognition or introduction for that matter, but we are both super proud to be helping lead this group for the next year.

This team is going to do amazing things because action is already being taken, and leadership is just that… an action; it’s not a position. This team is consistent in our prayer for the moms in our community that God will lead the ones who need us the most to our door.

Kala and I are, also, still in prayer that God will send us three more leaders. One to co-lead with Lauren Conway in Creative Activities and Service Projects and two more who not only have a past success but passion for fundraising. If you are feeling your heart strings being tugged and considering leadership, we know you could help fill these shoes. Please reach out to us. A prayer, then conversation is all we ask you to start with.

Do you want to be a part of MOPS of Newnan this year? Join us. Don’t miss out on this amazing group of mamas. Come see what MOPS can do for you, and I bet you’ll learn what you have to offer too.

Early Registration ends this weekend. Register here to help us earn free MOPS International Memberships which allow us to offer financial assistance to mothers.
