~ MOPS ~

I started my day off by going to MOPS this morning. I knew who the speaker was going to be, so I was excited. It was someone whom I am getting to know more and more. The more I know, the more I love her, Susie Thompson. She has such a heart for God and is truly obedient to His calling! She is wise and offered some great advice for all of us mothers who get down and sometimes "lose our joy", as Mrs. Scogin stated. Before ST spoke we had our drawing for door prizes and I won a journal and was really blessed by that because I was able to take notes!! One important tip I learned today was to look in the future and visualize what I want my kids to be like. What qualities do I want them to have? I have not really thought of that. T and I are not raising babies or toddlers, we are raising Godly Men and a Godly Woman. I think this was huge for me because it is so easy to just get in a rut and just go through the motions of life. I could go on and on about what I learned; maybe I will share more later. Thanks to ST for sharing her heart today and obeying God's calling to speak to us.

Love, Shaina


  1. Isn't it funny how God speaks to us differently! Not that one is better or whatever, but I had forgotten about that and was focused on the prayer thing (just becuaes that is what hit me). Man, she was SOOOOOO good! I'm glad she was able to come!

    Glad you enjoyed your journal! I might need those notes you took too! :)

  2. I miss MOPS! This year has been crazy and I haven't gotten to come, it is such a blessing to so many mom's!
