    been married to Scott for 18 years and

    Lori wears many hats. She is a mom to

    four wonderful children who participate

    families who have lost a child. She is

    also involved in many ministries at Grace Baptist Church including MOPS,

    Welcome to MOPS at Grace Baptist Church.

    We pray that you will find opportunities this year to meet new friends, spend time with old friends,

    share your triumphs and struggles, be a blessing to

    others and grow in your relationship with Jesus. Our gatherings are designed to be a time of fun and

    fellowship, as well as a chance to have our

    wonderful nursery volunteers minister to you and your children. Fun events are scheduled each

    month that you will not want to miss. Thank you

    for sharing your beautiful messes with us this year!

    like a mess. They are exhausted, under-showered,

    God’s love and purposes.

    Embrace Your Story — reminds moms that their past, present and future can be used for good. God
