I asked my dear friend Stephanie Shott to share with us today about an exciting new movement she’s initiated. If you’re a mom, a grandma, an aunt, or ever want to be a mom, don’t miss this!
The M.O.M. Initiative
Many women dream of being the perfect mom who has all the right answers, never raises her voice and never has to count to three, but we all know being a good mom is not that easy. Those sweet little bundles of joy don’t come with instruction manuals or warning labels and moms are often left to figure it out on their own.
What is the M.O.M. Initiative?
“Mothers On a Mission to Mentor Other Mothers” is a group of moms and a package of resources to equip, enable and support women as they experience Titus 2 principles in real life. It is a mentoring package of resources that give Christian mothers an easy, hands on approach to passionately pursue mentor relationships with younger mothers and mothers-to-be, and ultimately impact the next generation for Christ. Simply stated, the M.O.M. Initiative exists to help moms become the best moms they can possibly be.
The M.O.M. Initiative website
Virtual encouragement for real life moms: The website is a safe place to grow as a mother, to gain a better understanding of what a mother is and what a mother does, and to foster and support mentor/mentee relationships.
Virtual mentoring in times of need: Find practical tips, helpful tools, godly wisdom, and informative insight on current issues. The M.O.M. Initiative website also offers a private chat room where a mom can connect virtually with a mentor and find help in times of need. The website offers help for both the mentor and the mentee.
Practical articles for every season of life: A diverse and experienced group of moms provide the helpful and insightful articles on the M.O.M. Initiative website. Not only are they passionate about ministering to the hearts of mothers, they are also writers, speakers, counselors, nurses, or experts in their fields who devote much time and effort to serving other mothers.
The M.O.M. Initiative workbook
This workbook – currently in development – will be an invaluable tool to help Christian moms mentor other moms in the church and beyond. This eight-week study, five lessons per week, study will:
- Present moms with biblical truths and solid information on the mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and developmental needs of a child
- Foster insight through thought provoking questions
- Encourage moms to implement proactive mothering techniques
- Include a M.O.M. mentor guide and a missional planning guide
Giving birth to the M.O.M. Initiative
M.O.M. Initiative founder Stephanie Shott was a single mom at age nineteen. Without Christ and without a mentor, she made a series of serious choices that affected her precious young son. When Stephanie became a Christian five years later she learned being a mom is much more than a three-letter word and a handful of sacrifices. The significance of Titus 2:4-5 deeply impacted her.
Stephanie’s experience fostered passion for mentoring moms and birthed the vision for the M.O.M. Initiative. Her goal is to impact not just church moms, but to also facilitate mentoring relationships with young moms wherever they are found – in homes for unwed mothers, low-income housing projects, apartment complexes, homeless shelters, prisons, juvenile shelters, schools, hospitals, the mission field and more. (Planning guides for each of these venues will be available in the back of the book.)
