    Mission Control: Where Super Moms Get Their Ideas May 2010

    Where two or three come together in my name, there I am with them. Matthew 18:20

    ~Momology 2010 Theme~ In 2010, MOPS invites you to join

    in the learning process as together

    we explore Momology: The Art and

    Science of Mothering.

    Mothering is both art and science.

    It combines all of who we are to

    shape healthy, resilient kids. Moth-

    ering is so complex it requires both

    sides of our brain not to mention

    our hands and feet, eyes and ears,

    mouth and (sniff, sniff) unfortunately,

    sometimes even our noses!

    There's the scientific side of moth-

    ering where we develop a hypothe-

    sis based on certain principles, test

    that hypothesis in real-time, con-

    sider the results and decide what

    parts worked and what parts didn't.

    We keep refining our hypotheses

    until we find what works for us.

    Intertwined with the scientific,

    mothering requires an artistry that

    shades with our personality, colors

    with our unique gifts, and blends

    past and current experiences.

    MOPS International has identified

    four essential elements for success-

    ful outcomes with our kids.

    Core is about knowing and growing

    ourselves. Understanding and work-

    ing with our unique temperament,

    experiences, and emotions in a way

    that develops resilience. Research

    clearly shows that a mom with a

    strong, resilient core is more likely to

    raise a child with a strong, resilient


    Finesse is about honing practical

    mothering skillsintentionally carrying

    out our daily responsibilities in ways

    that encourage growth and resilience

    in our kids.

    Circle is about building relationships

    with neighbors, care-givers, extended

    family and, most importantly, with our

    husbands or for single moms, with a

    parenting partner.

    Grandscape is about engaging with

    God and his unique purpose for our

    lives. Both secular and Christian re-

    search identifies faith in God as an

    essential element for successful moth-


    Through Momology, as we explore

    together, well be guided by an all-

    knowing, all-powerful, always-present

    God. Our theme verse for the year is:

    Even there your hand will guide me,

    your right hand will hold me fast.

    (Psalm 139:10)

    Anywhere we go, God sees, knows,

    and guides. So we can lead and

    love knowing God will get us

    through all the hard spots, all our deci-

    sions, all our roles, all our times we

    cant hold open our eyelids and the

    times were bursting with joy. Gods

    hand guides us as we guide our chil-

    dren. As we study Momology together

    to become better moms making a bet-

    ter world.
