Why Do I Need MOPS?

I was lost in a world of diapers and sippy cups. MOPS changed my life. I realized that there are lots of other moms out there just like me, struggling with the same challenges of raising preschoolers. And it is so much better to face them together than alone. MOPS is that place that I can go to and not have to face things alone, and to be able to build strong friendships. MOPS has taught me that I don’t need to be perfect in order to be the best mom that I can be for my kids. ~ Catrina

At MOPS I made some of the strongest friendships of my life and I found some great support to get me through the good and bad days of parenting. My MOPS group is so helpful to me because at the meetings I get a break from caring for my kids, I eat my own food and talk with other moms. I am also reminded how precious my children really are and how valuable the time is that I spend with them during these young years of their lives. ~ Anne
