The other day I received a phone call from our old pastor in Smyrna, Pastor Megan. I really enjoyed talking with her but realized during our conversation that I have become lax in find a home church once again. I am frustrated in not finding what I want and at some point need to come to terms with the fact that I will not find what we left behind.
During the school year I do have Bible study through my MOPS group and the kids have temple talk it just isn't the same as going to church every Sunday and becoming connected.
During our conversation I was able to express to Pastor Megan how much MOPS has meant to me. Upon moving to Columbus I didn't know anyone and needed a way to meet people, since it seemed everyone in our neighborhood was working. MOPS was the answer to my prayers and it has also become much more. I have grown in my faith and have developed friends that I'm not sure I would have otherwise. I will seek out new MOPS groups if we ever do leave Columbus, and hopefully it will be as enriching to me and my children as this program has been.
