In the latest newsletter from MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) my mentoree and friend, Kayleigh tells her story. It’s AWESOME!
One mom’s life-changing experience with MOPS:
I was 15 years old and I had just given birth to my first daughter. My aunt saw a Teen MOPS poster in the hallway of the hospital. Two days later, I attended my first Teen MOPS group meeting, where I attended every week for the next four years.
In 2004, my second daughter arrived. After her birth, my mentor mom asked why Nathan and I were not married. I told her that we could not afford a wedding. Soon after that conversation, my MOPS group planned us the perfect “Cinderella wedding.” They paid for everything, the cake, reception, flowers, garden wedding – everything.
The following Sunday Nathan and I attended church together for the first time. We knew there was emptiness in our hearts that only God could fill. We prayed the sinner’s prayer the first Sunday we attended church. Today I’m in a special season raising our now three children. I’m a Mentor mom in a new Teen MOPS group. I want to help other moms change and refocus their lives – just like mine.

I am so amazed by the work that God has done in, not only the lives of Kayliegh and her husband, Nathan, but in my life as well. Click here to learn more about Kayleigh.
