MOPS "My Story" Fundraiser

Many of you know that I am a part of a group of moms that meets a couple times a month.  It's called MOPS, Mothers of Preschoolers, and it's an international organization.  It is a group that I was involved with when single and in college helping with the children's program, MOPPETS, and now I currently coordinator our local group, Brownsville MOPS.

This group is near and dear to me because they have been there for me.  These women are all moms that "get" where I'm coming from when I'm having a bad day, and they are there to celebrate with me when Evalyn reaches milestones.  They were also there with me as I experienced the grief of losing a child.  These women are important not just to me, but to the world as a whole.  When a mom has a place she can go to be encouraged and receive support she becomes a better mom.  The ripple effect of her being better passes on to her child(ren) and family making the world better one generation at a time.  I am privileged to know these women and their stories.  I also truly believe that no mom should be alone.

Would you consider helping support our group by purchasing one or more of these wonderful books to tell your story to future generations?  This book was created by another MOPS group in Dripping Springs, TX, and I am so grateful that they have allowed us to use it as a fundraiser so our group will not be limited by funds in growing and making a positive influence in our community and the world.

Please feel free to share this with friends and family.  One book is only $20 and if you order 2 or more, the price goes down to $15 per book.  Shipping is covered to me, so if I need to ship to you we can find out that cost for either First Class or Media Mail, depending upon the time needed to reach you if you want it before Christmas.

Don't let your story get lost in this technological age.  And just think, by the time you finish filling out the questions in this book, you would have written a book!  You can cross that off your bucket list!

Don't forget friends/family that are single or married with no children, they too have a story to tell.
