Meeting Notes for 09/20/13

Another great meeting and another new mom! Yay! We just love adding to our group!

We started out with a devotional shared by Amanda and Angela shared her Messy Photo. I’m really loving hearing about everyone’s Beautiful Messes!

We enjoyed a lovely brunch provided by Group 1 and while eating we chatted over some M&M’s. Each mom took a spoonful of M&M’s and shared something for each color (Brown-family, Blue-yourself, Red-hobby, Green-where you grew up, and Yellow-anything you wanted, hmm Orange was missing).

We then watched the Controlling Your Mess: Controlling Your Emotions video by Lisa TerKeurst on our MOPS DVD. She is a great speaker! And we had lots to talk about afterwards.

Glass Marble MagnetsWhile we were chatting about the video we did a simple craft. We made glass marble magnets. Didn’t they turn out so nice? Super easy too! While we were finishing up our craft, Jennifer was able to take some photos for our Photo Directory. If you didn’t get your photo taken at the meeting, be “photo ready” for the next meeting. We’ll want to get our Photo Directory out to everyone ASAP! Good thing we’re multi-taskers!

Our meeting seemed to fly by so quickly (as they always do). We ended with our Prayer and Praise Circle where we shared announcements of upcoming dates and prayer requests.


Mom’s Night Out – Monday, Sept. 30th at 8 PM at Lisa’s House for Bunco! Don’t know how to play? No problem! Lisa will give us a lesson! Please RSVP in your evite so we know how many people to expect.

We’re the hosts and give out prizes for the best trunk!! The kids vote on their favorite.
