"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor, he has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord."

Luke 4:18-19

WHAT IS MOPS?

Here at MOPS, we are on a mission to celebrate motherhood.


We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own cities, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of being a mom.


This is motherhood, and together we can change the world in all the best ways.



Free Indeed

What do you long for? What is the thing that your heart craves?

Is it possible that your deepest desire is to be free?

Free from worry.

Free from feeling stuck.

Free from hustling to be loved.

Free from a heaviness you can’t put your finger on.

Free from thinking you should be someone other than exactly who you are. At the core, maybe what we are all longing for is to be Free Indeed.


Choosing freedom is a deeply spiritual act, one that our souls long for. That is why this year, we choose wild, unexpected freedom; the kind that brings more laughter and less worry, more contentment and less hustle. Freedom that is so contagious, the people around us are compelled toward their own liberation.


Let Love Be the Loudest Voice:


Sometimes, especially as moms with young kids, life can sneak up on us, and we don’t realize that we have gotten stuck. Stuck in patterns of thinking or habits that are holding us captive. This is the year that changes, this is the year we will stop settling for what simply gets us by and do the work to get to what’s best. We will examine our worries and not believe everything we feel. We will bask in the free- dom of living loved by understanding who god is, and who we are because of it. We will be free from the need to hustle for our worth, and we will live in the truth that we are already loved and loveable, without all the striving. We will parent with fresh perspective and will treat ourselves with tenderness, because love is the loudest voice we hear, and it is proclaiming freedom and favor.


Be GUTSY

Sometimes we don’t take responsibility for our lives. We carry the weight of expectations, feeling out of control over the pace and trajectory of our days. Being gutsy is about realizing that you get to de- cide how busy you are, what you say yes to, what is best for your family and what you make a priority in your

mothering. If you need to slow down your life – you can do that. If you feel like you don’t have any friends, go out and make some. This is the year of release from believing life has to look a certain way, and isn’t there so much freedom and audacity in that? The truth is, we have more authority to shape our daily lives

than we think we do. your life can match your values and your passions, it will just take some guts to make it happen.


GO FIRST

It is a fact that freedom is contagious. That is why we are choosing to go first in order to spark a revo- lution of women who are choosing freedom over fear.  Going first is about being courageous enough to take steps before you are ready, to share the details of your journey, extend invitations, conquer fears, and lead the way for friends and kids and family. In fact, one of the best ways to advocate for others’ freedom is to go first ourselves, and then we can share with courage and honesty because we have found the keys that can set others free. We will go first so that we can set other captives free.
