We Go Together (MOPS 2022-23)
We Go Together, But We Don’t Always Agree: When you find your people, you’re bound to find disagreements, too! Did you know that conflict, when handled well, could actually help us have closer relationships with our friends, our families, even our spouse? This talk focuses on healthy habits we can develop in conflicts to make us more unoffendable & to help us live out Romans 12:18 “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”
Finding Your Flock: Cultivating meaningful friendships is hard. Cultivating meaningful friendships when you’re exhausted, busy, and chasing after littles seems downright impossible! This talk is born out of my own awkward search for my flock after becoming a mom and the lessons I learned along the way. It focuses on friendship myths and practical steps to help us find and grow those relationships, even as moms in this crazy season.
Fun & Practical
Parenting with Personality in Mind: Early on, we can see glimpses of just what our kids are like. Sometimes it’s fun to see their personalities emerge; other times, it’s frustrating! This fun, practical talk focuses on looking at the unique strengths and challenges of four different personality types. It will help you to understand where your kids (and other loved ones) are coming from and learn ways to help shape them into the best version of themselves.
Deciding to Rise Without Mom Guilt: I never knew until I had children just how many reasons I would feel guilty! Guilt is paralyzing and can keep us from living the abundant life we want to live. Living to the full means learning to enjoy our life and let go of our fear that we’re not enough. This message focuses on discerning where the guilt is coming from and how to move forward into freedom and joy.
If you have a topic or theme in mind for your group other than what I have listed, I’m happy to work with you to share something personalized for you. I love to work with churches and groups to design a message that will meet their needs. I’m get most excited talking about interpersonal relationships/leadership principles, spiritual practices to connect with Jesus, finding your sweet spot/purpose, and applying God’s Word to our daily lives.
