MOPS groups are communities that strive to meet the needs of every mom with children from birth through kindergarten. MOPS recognizes that urban, suburban, and rural moms, stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single, and married moms all share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be. MOPS groups can help!
In 2010, MOPS invites you to join in the learning process as together we explore “Momology: The Art and Science of Mothering.”
Mothering is both art and science. It combines all of who we are to shape healthy, resilient kids. Mothering is so complex it requires both sides of our brain – not to mention our hands and feet, eyes and ears, mouth and (sniff, sniff) unfortunately, sometimes even our noses!
There’s the scientific side of mothering where we develop a hypothesis based on certain principles, test that hypothesis in real-time, consider the results and decide what parts worked and what parts didn’t. We keep refining our hypotheses until we find what works for us.
Intertwined with the scientific, mothering requires an artistry that shades with our personality, colors with our unique gifts, and blends past and current experiences.
As we head into our new semester of “Momology: The Art and Science of Mothering”; we will be attending classes like “Sculpture 102” (shaping the family), “Sweetheartology” (looking at the relationship between husband and wife), then “Photology” (how to take pictures and what to do with them) and finally “Homeroom” (bringing Christ back into the home. We hope that you will join us.
We will meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday’s of September, October, November, the 1st Tuesday of December and then the 2nd Tuesday of December we will have a fun filled Christmas party with friends. There is limited space, so don’t delay in your registration. Registration will close once our childcare ratios are full, so don’t delay!
