Wow, what an amazing way to start the Beautiful Moms 2014 season! We had over 90 women in attendance. The tables were full and the food was overflowing. As was the excitement and the laughter. The Waters campus had their own table- it was awesome seeing another campus come together with us! I am so in awe of how God orchestrates our lives. As leaders, we plan and prepare and most of all pray but God brings the people! He showed up and showed out with the fun dynamic group He brought this year. Over 1/3 of our group is brand new to the Beautiful Moms ministry. So cool! We had a great time getting to know the other ladies at our tables, laughing at funny videos and even had a little purse game competition. But most of all, we had adult time without kids. That is priceless to Moms!
There are almost 20 leaders that make Beautiful Moms run smoothly and I love serving with each and every one of them.
I am so grateful to Kristin Bonham and her vision for the women at Grace. I know for sure that our women’s ministry is one of the best there is! But most of all I am grateful for a church that values its mothers so much that it would provide a childcare program so we can meet. What church does that? Seriously – Awesome!
Our next meeting is Sept. 18th and we will have our own anointed, Misty Umhotlz, speaking on Unglued. Who as a Mom can’t relate to coming unglued every now and then (or every day!)? So if you are a Mom who is free on Thursday mornings and you want to fellowship and grow with other Moms, come check us out Sept. 18th at 10:00am in the church lobby. Then again, we may have to move to a bigger location!
Grace Moms Rock!
