  • this year's theme

    Our theme for the 2018-2019 MOPS year is "Find Your Fire"

    Fire is a tool utilized only by human beings. Since the beginning of time, humans have congregated around its warmth for light, protction and company. Every other creature on the planet fears fire, but we've been given the unique ability to harness it, so use its power to improve our lives. Not only that, but poets and artists have used fire to describe the God-given spark that wakes us up in the morning and fuels our purpose and passion. Whatever the context, fire is not to be ignored. 


    Sisters, this is the year we will tend the fire in our hearts.


    We will stop inhaling the fumes of our mistakes that tell us we are not enough. Instead, we will choose to tend our God-given fre. We will love our children with an all-consuming love and use our words to warm the world. We will hold the torch up high and shed light on what matters most.


    When our homes feel cold, we'll light a fire. 


    When a frien has lost her spark we'll fan her flame.


    When the world seems dark, we will be an ember of hope.


    In order to do this we will:


    LIVE EXPECTANTLY:  This is the bold reminder about what could go right.  We will renew our minds and choose to trust that God is good. Hope will be on the tip of our tongues. Passion will flow from our hearts and we will pray big prayers. It takes tending to keep the fire alive, so we will fan our flame by choosing to do more things that make us forget to check our phones. We will choose to play with our kids instead of crossing one ore thing off our to-do list. We will be women whose passion and patience inspire the people we love most.


    SURRENDER DARINGLY:  This is the bold reminder to let things go. Fire is a tool of transformation. and often the most life-improving thing we can do is surrender. Surrender is often misunderstood as an act of weakness, when in truth it is an act of courage. What would it feel like to let yourself off the hook from living like it is all up o you> Let go of unhelpful expectations and the need to control the people and situations in our life. When we surrender, we become in tune with the swift but gentle timing of God. This year, we will take a daring step into the fire of transformation, so we can emerge truer and braver than we ever imagined we could be. We will be women who trust that God is fighting for us, so we need only to be still. 


    BREATHE FREELY: This is the bold reminder to let yourself be loved. Even through we aren't enough in our own mind, we are enough in the mind of God. There is nothing you can do, or have done, to ruin or fracture God's love for you./ There is no amount of striving or performing that will earn you more. Breathe freely and joyfully, and be refreshed. We will be women and moms who stand out because we live loved.


    MAY THIS BE THE YEAR YOU FIND YOUR FIRE
