Welcome to Newberg MOPS!
MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. We believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why MOPS connects moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying alongside one another.
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it’s a little confusing so let’s just stick with “MOPS.”
We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.

Family/Kids: I have a 7yr old daughter, and My husband Nate and I have a 2yr old daughter together. We are navigating the journey of being a blended family.
Favorite Thing to do with family: We love to just hang out in our back yard together, and putter. We also love to take short weekend trips as a family to the coast or to central Oregon.
Favorite Thing to do by myself (without kids): I love to take baths, alone, without anyone trying to join me! I also have a strong wanderlust so taking a little trip alone really helps me to feel rejuvenated.
Why I joined Leadership: Part of my personal mission has been to support Women and Children. MOPS is the perfect opportunity for me to give back at a local level and support Moms as well as our community. I'm also also hopeful that being on leadership will allow me to meet more Moms, allowing me to make new friends and more meaningful connections.
What I enjoy most about MOPS: I love that feeling of solidarity. Knowing that I'm not alone in this, that other moms are going through the exact same perils as I am, and that we’re united in this together.
What I am looking forward to this year with MOPS: All of it! Eating brunch, having 2 hours away from my toddler, making new friends, strengthening my relationship with Christ.
What this year’s theme “Free Indeed” means to me (Let Love be the Loudest Voice/Be Gutsy/Go First): For me, it's a reminder to get out of my comfort zone.
Be brave, make connections, seek opportunities for growth.
