Their best begins with you
If you are pregnant or have children through the Kindergarten-age, we encourage you to join MOPS at NorthRidge and connect with other women on the mission to be their very best.
Welcome to the 2016-2017 MOPS Theme - We Are the Starry Eyed
Sometimes we think we have to pick one, when in reality it is always both. Light and dark, hope and fear, kindness and risk, wonder and mundane.This is evidenced by the fact that we are people who are meant to live by both sunlight and moonlight. Our natural rhythms revolve around the circling of sun and moon. Yet often our tendency is to cling to one, the one that is more comfortable, forgetting that our fullest living comes when we embrace the swirly mix.
Starry Eyed means looking for the light even when darkness is enveloping. It is an opportunity to hope recklessly and to witness God’s presence guiding things seen and unseen, comfortable and uncomfortable.When we reflect back over our lives, this year is going to stand out. It will be the year that we decided to live fully by both sunlight and moonlight. Because audacity is rising in the deepest and wildest parts of our souls. And the best part is, we will experience it all together.
So the question becomes,
When was the last time you felt fully alive?
The last time you were so swept up with wonder that it took your breath away?
That kindness made you feel powerful?
Or audacious hope unraveled fear?
This is the year to experience all of it.
Starry Eyed is…
Seeing the light in the darkness and choosing to live courageously in both.
It is opening our eyes to wonder and choosing hope over fear.
Starry Eyed is significant acts of kindness that send ripples of light into the world.
It is a choice to live fully and wholly and to breathe our way back to life.
If you feel anxious and don’t know why...
If you are busy and distracted from the things you truly care about...
If you are restless for an unexpected encounter with God...
If you long to feel alive, to regain a sense of wonder, to hope a little freer and to be a powerful force of kindness in the world, then we’d love for you to join us in becoming Starry Eyed.
This year we will run wildly toward wonder, hope and kindness because We Are the Starry Eyed and we choose to see the light.
Children Enjoy Coming Too!
The MOPPETS Program (available during the morning session) is designed to be a safe, loving and creative place where your children can have fun while you receive a needed break. The dedicated MOPPETS workers provide individual attention to each child during the MOPS meeting. Each year, our tables have the privilege of serving in MOPPETS once or twice. You’ll learn more at our first meeting about when your group might serve in this way.
Please note that childcare registration for AM will close on September 17.
