Frosting cookies, making burlap wreaths, and painting pumpkins are some of the things you would see at our Moms and Munchkins meetings. Also, smiling faces, laughter, and a lot of encouraging love are what I enjoy the most. The Mission moms, Sheree Wedel, Brie Bielecki, myself, and other mothers in our community, have started our second year of Moms and Munchkins.
We felt a need to start a moms group in our community after hearing so many mothers say how lonely it could be and wanted a gathering for mothers to join together. Sweetwater can be an isolating home for young mothers being with their young children all day, everyday without good play dates. We wanted to start a mom’s group centered on the Lord and a safe place for mothers and children to go.
We meet monthly for treats, crafts, and a time to listen to the Lord’s teachings. God has been faithful. Last year on the very first meeting, not a single guest came. We were discouraged, but still believed that eventually women would come. We now have fifteen ladies coming consistently and about five more mothers that come when they can. We are so thankful that we can serve as mothers to other mothers in our community.
Please pray for all mothers of Sweetwater. Pray for more mothers to see the positive impact of the Lord in each other and for more new believing mothers. Pray for new women to come and that they would be open to hearing God’s word. Our scripture focus this year is Philippians 4.8
“Finally, brothers (sisters), whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.”
All of us Mission mothers are so thankful for all that Moms and Munchkins has allowed us to do in God’s service. It is truly a joy to celebrate the beauty and grace of mothers and building each other up in Christ.
