November Speaker Info:
Career changes. Marriage. Babies. Health problems. Relocation. Death of a loved one. Some of life’s most profound changes—whether positive or negative—can make us feel so alone. But the Lord provides for us many times in our lives with mentors in the form of other women who can help shepherd us through tough times. Moms4Moms’ mentors see their role as one to encourage and build up the moms in mothering, in their marriages, and in their walk with Christ. These 10 ladies meet before our meetings to pray for us, for the speakers, for our children, and that the Lord blesses our precious time together. At the November meeting we’ll hear some of their best wisdom.
