If you are a mother of a preschooler, you’ve got your hands full. Your life is probably a little messy, or a lot messy. We understand, we’ve been there, or are currently there or feel like we’ll never leave this messy stage! We know that being a mom is the most rewarding, as well as, the most challenging job in the world. We believe that supporting, encouraging and loving other mothers helps make us all better mothers, and better mothers make a better world.
What is MOPS?
So what exactly is MOPS? MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, which is an international organization designed to nurture and connect mothers to other mothers in their own neighborhoods, building community by meeting together to laugh, cry, and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS believes that better moms make a better world.
MOPS groups are encouraging women to be more honest, take healthy risk, feel more equipped and to find their identity. The women are of all sorts of backgrounds, with all sorts of histories, but all have children under the age of 5 and share the same desire: to be the very best Mom they can be.
MOPS meets at Foothills Baptist Church in Ahwatukee from 9-11am every other Thursday from August to May, following the Kyrene School District schedule (click here for specific dates).
Each meeting provides an inviting environment where women can come to build friendships, be encouraged and gain practical parenting strategies all while their children are cared for in our MOPPETS program.
A typical meeting includes sharing potluck style breakfast, listening to a speaker, group discussions or doing a creative activity.
