Tomorrow marks 5 years that I have been a MOPS volunteer. I have been involved with MOPS for a total of 9 years. And let me tell you, I absolutely LOVE it. MOPS has been such a huge part of my life and I will probably never not be a part of it.
After I got divorced and I met Abe, he introduced me to a new church. I loved it, so we became members and I quickly found out about MOPS. I joined and it was such a great experience for me. I got to meet some new people and the kiddo went to child care while I spent 2 hours enjoying adult momma time. It was great. I joined the leadership team shortly after joining and the following year I became coordinator. After I was done coordinating, I became a MOPS ministry coach. After that I became a community coach. I coached my groups and a few other coaches. After that I became a Special Projects Volunteer. I basically do all the things for our Facebook group and I create our event registration pages and Facebook event pages. I help in any way I can. I love it. I also help moderate the MOPS Coordinators group. I usually will approve posts and I am in charge of approving ladies to enter the group. It keeps me busy, but I love it.
I can't believe that 5 years on the volunteer team has gone by so quickly! In honor of my 5 years, I am going to the link to donate to MOPS. If you feel led, consider donating to MOPS. Your donation could be distributed a number of different ways. You could choose to use your donation for general, which would be used where most needed to support groups and moms. You could choose to donate to the International side, which would support the expansion of MOPS outside the US. Or you could choose to donate to the scholarship side, which would make MOPS accessible for groups and moms who can't afford participation fees. What a wonderful gift your donation would make. If you feel led to donate, please click here.
If you are interested in joining MOPS, please comment below. It is a great resource for mom's with kids from birth to kindergarten. In our MOPS, every other week we either had craft or a speaker. It was such an amazing thing as a mom to experience. And I love my MOPS friends. I have made some wonderful friendships from my time with MOPS. I can help you find a group near you.
