MOMs Kick-Off

Tonight we had our MOMs kick-off at my house. It's been about a year since we've met. Childcare was always an issue, so we are now going to meet the 2nd Thursday night of each month in host homes. I've always thought it would be fun to meet in different homes.

I asked our new pastor's wife, Jamie Sykes, to be our guest speaker tonight. She shared her family's journey and then compared and contrasted her and the previous pastor's wife, Jonya Davis. She shared how it's so easy to compare others and how we often compare ourselves to others. We often wish we could sing as good as so and so, or speak as good as so and so, or look as good as so and so. She shared that God has a place for each of us and we need to find out what that place is. Even if we think we have nothing to offer, He still has a purpose and plan for each and every one of us.

Bethany Walker shared a cute fall craft demo with us. You can check it out here.
A yellow mum was give away as a door prize. (Not this actual mum. The one given away was a bit smaller, but I forgot to take a pic!) Leslie Johnson was the lucky winner!

And last, but certainly not least, we enjoyed a homemade soup potluck, complete with cornbread muffins and sweet tea! We had 16 come tonight and plan to have many more join us next month!
