Jovia was one of our regular Teen MOPS attendees. She was a 17-year-old Senior due just six weeks before graduation. At Teen MOPS Jovia earned clothes, diapers and baby furniture for her baby girl. She built friendships with many mentors who connected with her through the week. When Brianne was born, the mentors visited her at the hospital and at home. They were around to answer all the questions of a young mom. The biggest challenge came when Jovia had six weeks of school left, yet she didn’t have childcare for Brianne. Through a Teen MOPS connection, a wonderful woman from FamilyLife volunteered to babysit Brianne and give Jovia rides to a from school. Because of the help and support Jovia graduated from high school and she is now registered for classes at Pulaski Tech! Jovia is looking forward to the new Teen MOPS year … and we are excited to see what God is going to continue to do in Jovia’s life!
