Kid(s) & Age(s): Malin (girl) 3, and Anders (boy) 1
Favorite Things about MOPS: Feeling all the barriers come down when you walk into a room is so refreshing. It’s such a special place for vulnerability, honesty and Jesus for women going through one of the hardest seasons of life.
Something you never thought you’d do as a Mom: Tell my child to stop licking the railing in public places.
Best thing about being a Mom: Besides watching my husband become a father; it’s watching a piece of your heart walk around your home, learn, live life, tell you about their day and friends, and learn to love Jesus. It’s truly life’s greatest blessing!
Kid(s) & Age(s): Jackson, 4.5 years old, Jameson, born 7/28/19
Favorite Thing about MOPS: I love being in a judgement free place with amazing mamas who love Jesus. It’s great to be able to talk about our struggles and joys in motherhood and feeling loved enough to be real & honest.
Something you never thought you'd do as a Mom: I never thought I would be so overwhelmed with love for another person, let alone two people! I also know so much about monster trucks.
Best thing about being a Mom: I love so much about being a mama, I’m not sure if there is a best part. I sure do love getting hugs and kisses and being told how much he loves me for no reason at all (as high as the sky, as deep as the ocean & all the way to Florida), watching him grow and learn. Also I love watching him be kind and thoughtful of everything when he doesn’t know he’s being watched. I’m also very much looking forward to getting to watch another tiny person grow into a kind, loving person.

Something you never thought you'd do as a Mom: Drive a minivan and love it!
Best thing about being a Mom: My answer could vary on any given day! I'm learning to slow down and experience the world through my daughter's eyes. Every flower, animal, and vehicle that we encounter is discussed at length because they are AMAZING. God created us to enjoy His creation and kids are the very best at it.

Favorite Thing about MOPS: Being a part of a community of authentic mamas looking to love Jesus and their families better.
Something you never thought you'd do as a Mom: Be able to handle the grossest bodily fluids with ease. My stomach can be so weak, but when your babies are sick, something inside you just kicks into gear!
Best thing about being a Mom: Right now my favorite part about being a mom is watching the little ones my husband and I have been entrusted with have their own relationships, thoughts, and experiences. I love watching Ben grow relationships, explore his likes and dislikes, and discover his character and place in the world. I think it’s magical when he realizes he can make someone laugh, that he is proud of himself, or that he can do something really hard.
