This year’s theme is “A Beautiful Mess” with the tag line “Embrace your story.” We don’t have too much trouble relating to the mess, but sometimes it takes a little more work to embrace our stories. Our speaker co-ordinator, Paige, created some great questions for us to think through and articulate our mothering stories of September 2013.
We wrote out answers then discussed with our tables. It took some vulnerability, but sharing our struggles and goals really helped build relationships and bring encouragement. We also shared many laughs over cute stories and embarrassing moments.
If you missed this meeting, please answer these questions if you can and give them to your table leader. At the last meeting in April, we will be opening our “time capsules” and reflecting on how our stories may have changed over the year.
Moppets curriculum co-ordinator Amanda told us what our kiddos will be up to this semester – “I belong to Jesus” theme with memory verses, Bible stories, mini take-home books and crafts. And look for supplementary activities to be posted here on the blog!
Don’t forget the playdate coming up this Thursday.
