MOPS Fall Swap

MOPS of Newnan Fall Swap

First, Happy Halloween! If you’re downtown Newnan for the Munchkin Masquerade and see me working at the Library, please say hi!

But you’re probably reading to learn more about out next meeting, so let me get right to it… Clean out your closets and pack up the clothes that no longer fit the people in your house. Clean the playroom & kids’ rooms and bring the toys your kids no longer enjoy. Bring all your unwanted items to the MOPS Swap. Bring as many items as you’d like. Because you’ll have a chance to look through everything the other mothers bring and select items that will work for you and your family. Items your kids will enjoy! You might even find something worth saving to wrap for Christmas!

At the end of swap, unclaimed items will go to New Beginnings Thrift Store to support Women’s Shelters.

Check in is at 9:15, breakfast starts at 9:30 am, and we will have plenty of time to shop before settling in for a little gratitude challenge. Don’t you think it’s time?

It’s simple: If you worry, you give up being happy. This week, we’ll take the Three Good Things Gratitude Challenge and embrace the phrase, “Don’t worry. Be happy!”

And speaking of being happy… be happy with us! If you haven’t committed to us for this season, what are you waiting for? Haven’t you had a great time? We want you to be a part of MOPS of Newnan this year, so stop hesitating and *commit.

I am thrilled about what we have planned today. I mean, I think two meetings is plenty of time to get to know each other and it’s time to get deep. Are you in?

We have two guest speakers to talk to us about Parenting. Lauren Collins RN, BSN is from Moms On Call, and, mamas, when she told me what was on her heart, I got goose bumps. I cannot wait to hear what she has for us today. I’m pretty sure God was speaking to her and she was listening.

Next up is Susan Goodroe, M.Ed. with the Ferst Foundation, a childhood literacy program in Georgia, now known as Ferst Readers. And if you aren’t familiar with Ferst Readers, it’s a program that sends every child up to the age of 5 a free book each month. Wow! Where do I sign up? Well, Susan is going to tell us.

So, mamas, will I see you this morning? I sure hope you’ll be there with hearts open.
