The last two years have forced a lot of change upon most of us. Such unexpected, out-of-our-control changes can be hard to deal with. Change can be difficult for kids and adults alike. Continue reading “Change”
Are you knee deep in nappies? Or juggling the many activities your kids are part of? Then the Every Mum conference has something for you. Be encouraged and equipped as a mother, a woman and a leader. This conference is open to all mums. You don’t need to be involved in MOPS or share a Christian faith background. Speakers and workshop presenters will cover many topics on parenting, personal development, leadership and spiritual growth.
We are so excited to have six in-person hub locations around Australia so that you have the opportunity to connect with other mums face to face. Make it a girls’ weekend away with some friends!
Life throws so many demands and curveballs so we designed the Every Mum Conference with flexibility in mind. Your ticket gives you access to all of the content online, even if you register to attend in-person. You also get 90 days of on-demand access afterwards.
Date: Saturday 22nd October (with Friday night sessions too where you can join MOPS Australia leaders in leadership training and find out about the new theme for 2023- We Go Together)
Time: Run live 9 am to 6 pm AEDT (each timezone has a suggested agenda on the website using the on-demand features when needed)
Format: In-person at a hub OR online including interactive workshop session options
Registration is open now so don’t miss out.
We have a giveaway going from one of our sponsors- Month of Sundays. Register now to be in the draw to win one of their past subscription boxes.

Mumma’s Online Market
Don’t forget to tell all your mummy friends!
Our key sponsors make this event possible:
“My mum sweeps the floor, bakes cupcakes and goes to the Fremantle Arts Centre”. According to a portrait by my then 4-year-old daughter, my mum life was a juggle! She wasn’t wrong. Continue reading “The mum juggle.”
At MOPS we are all about mums! But we are also about supporting families, and we acknowledge fathers’ important role in their children’s lives. We have just celebrated Father’s Day and, for some people, it can be a day full of mixed feelings. Grieving a father they have lost, or the fact they never had a good father figure can make the day a hard one. It’s tough, as fathers have such an important role in our lives. That’s why we must be encouraging new dads to be the best they can be.
When was the last time you paused in your day to be truly present and grateful? We can get so caught up in all the demands of taking care of kids, work and managing a household. Our lives slip past are a frightening pace. Our kids morph and grow before our eyes and we know that they will be an adult and gone all too soon. Or maybe it is just me that forgets to be present? Continue reading “Pausing to be present”
When I die, there will be no monument erected in my honour. There will be no State funeral or a big news story to tell of my passing. And I am okay with this. I am okay with this because I desire to leave a legacy of love in my sphere of influence, no matter how small it may be. Continue reading “Legacy of love”
Aiming for perfection has become my undoing! How often have you found yourself thinking ‘once everything is in place then I’ll be ready to enjoy this moment’? Once I have finished the to-do list, sorted the washing, or made the beds! The lists are never-ending I know! Why do we set such high expectations on ourselves before we can really be present in each moment? Continue reading “Perfection is my undoing”
When I was a mother of preschoolers, my own mum gave me wonderful advice on ‘how to do it all’. The short answer is – you can’t! Some people will tell you whilst the baby is asleep to clean the house – it’s so quiet and peaceful. Others will say, no, that’s the time to have a sleep yourself! Then there are the debates on sleeping (co-sleeping or separate? Crying or soothing?), feeding (bottle or breast? Pureed food or baby-led?), toilet training (from birth? When they ask?) and a myriad of other choices that can loom large in a mother’s mind. Continue reading “Motherhood Triage”
Motherhood seems to magnify all those insecurities and issues that lie buried within. They seem to be easier to mask when you aren’t responsible for this little person and facing the stressors that come with that. Add to that the deep desire not to pass on issues to my daughter. Then add the responsibility of teaching this child how to deal with her emotions and function as a whole human being. I am grateful for the incentive to do the deep work in myself that will in turn benefit her. Continue reading “Deep work to address unhealthy drivers”
