On any given fortnight, almost 3000 mums around the country are supported, encouraged and inspired by a MOPS group. At MOPS those mums can be honest with one another about the hard week they’re having, complete something as simple as a conversation without being interrupted, and learn something about themselves, their partner and their kids.

MOPS in Australia has some seriously fabulous leaders in its ranks. MOPS groups thrive and women have their socks blessed right off because dedicated MOPS leaders do what they do with excellence, passion and commitment.

I’m writing this at the end of a wonderful and successful State Conference here in South Australia. It was a privilege to work alongside Trish Montgomery and her helpers to facilitate this event for the past day and a half.

When was the last time you walked into a room and had your breath taken away? For me, it was Friday 9th September 2016, when I stepped from the cold Glen Waverley night into the warmth of the MOPS Victorian Conference. Immediately I was greeted by the ever-inspiring Gabriel ‘Gub’ Norris, who dazzled in what can only be described as Statue-of-Liberty-meets-an-entire-constellation-of-stars.

Upon arriving at the conference on Friday night, the excitement was building to find what was waiting for us. It was dark and the room was filled with fairy lights, stars, sparkles and glitter, ladies in ball gowns, tutus and tiaras.

Stars… Glitter… Chocolate… I’m not sure Camp Banksia Port Sorell on Tasmania’s beautiful north west coast has ever sparkled quite so brightly amidst the lovingly prepared dining hall with a ceiling full of fairy lights and garlands of stars, glittery runners and tables adorned with stars and of course chocolate…

The NSW/ACT conference was held from Friday night August 19th to Saturday afternoon August 20th. It was held at NewDay Church in Figtree and the Wollongong ladies put on a fantastic event.

Trialing a new format for the Queensland MOPS Conference, a group of 70 (seventy)… Yes, you did read it right… 70! MOPS ladies met at Calvary Family Church in Shailer Park for a Friday evening/Saturday day retreat. Groups travelled from near (Sunnybank) and far (Atherton) to be inspired.

From the moment the women were walking up to the welcome desk to collect the incredible welcome bags full of goodies, you could sense the excitement and anticipation. The opportunity to finish a coffee or tea while still hot, have an entire, uninterrupted adult conversation and look through a market without worrying about little hands breaking something was tantalising.

When I joined the MOPS Craigmore leadership team a couple of months ago, it was highly recommended that I come to conference so that I could be encouraged and learn more about my new role – especially as our MOPS team had never had someone formally in that role (Publicity) before. I thought it seemed like sound advice, so I registered and looked forward to conference.
