Are there mums asking questions about faith?
Do you want to draw your leaders together as a team?
Stepping into Freedom is designed to stimulate conversations about faith and can be used in a number of different ways outside of the MOPS morning.

In 2017 we had Discover/Discuss/Do cards for MUMSnext and for 2018 they have gone one step further and given us a whole meeting plan book just like they have for MOPS. Mums at this stage of life are quite different from mums who have children at home all day and the MOPS topics are not always relevant for MUMSnext mums. This meeting book recognises the particular needs of mothers with children at school.

It’s exciting for me as a coordinator that everyone that went to conference has received a copy of this amazing little book!
The theme ideas book is the perfect book for all leaders to have, having all the leader login in details for MOPS Australia and MOPS International at the start of the book, making sure every leader has access to all the information they need. It means that every leader no matter what their position can be fully involved and aware of the theme and able to contribute to team planning.

This is a great resource to equip new mentors and a great way for those that have been in the role a while to become reinspired in the mission of MOPS. It’s full of awesome stories to encourage you, fantastic journaling pages to teach you and get you thinking, and lots of tips on becoming a Dynamic Mentor.

This beautiful little book is full of wonderful things. It will make a great gift at the start of the year for all your mums. You will find each page teams up with one of the talks on the DVD and either has an activity for the mums to do or some extra word of encouragement. Many of the activities correspond with the suggestion topics in the Theme Ideas Book.

I think we all loved the Fun, Think, Talk, Do cards! They have helped us plan our meetings over the last few years. Well with this coming year’s theme they have added a few extra things to make meeting planning even easier – and it’s all in one book.

The Free Indeed GEK has an amazing new book that will be very well used all year round. It’s called Embracing Freedom: A Planning Workbook for Leaders. Whether you are new to coordinating or have been around a while you will want to sit down with a hot drink, a highlighter and get into this book!
As a coordinator of 6 years myself, I loved this book. It gave me fresh eyes to see MOPS and renewed my passion.

Has anyone else discovered that with the birth of their baby (or maybe even during pregnancy) a switch somewhere deep inside was turned on? The switch has large flashing letters above it labelling it as “mum guilt”. After battling this beast for the early months of my daughter’s life, I thought I had it mostly conquered. This beast lulls me into a false sense of victory, lying dormant for stretches of time. Sometimes the whispers of guilt are so slight that I almost miss them. Other times, guilt is a roar.

Ever been tortured by ‘on hold music’? I was stuck on the phone waiting for my doctor’s receptionist to pick up last week. Talk about painful! They were severely failing their ‘Hippocratic Oath’ of ‘first, do no harm’ (to my ears!)… All I could do was grit my teeth, wait it out (and also move the phone a little further away from my ear!)

‘Strategic planning’ is a phrase that means precious little if you don’t move in governance or corporate circles, and truth be told it makes me quite nervous.
Nervousness aside it was the Board’s task at our recent Board meeting and Strategic planning weekend. Just like Buzz Lightyear with boldness and determination, we set our sights on what MOPS in Australia needs to look like into the future, and what we need to do in the short term to see that happen.
