Most of us struggle with either loving others or allowing ourselves to be loved. It takes courage to do both! We typically think of February as being the "love" month. But there is another holiday that is also all about love .... Easter. Monica Coleman, our former MOPS team member, will be our guest speaker.
Monica Coleman, was born and raised in Michigan.
I grew up in the small town of Mesick, MI known for the Morel Mushroom. I lived a very simple life in the country with my parents and 2 sisters. Upon high school graduation, I attended college at Spring Arbor College.
While at Spring Arbor College I studied Music and Psychology. During my time at Spring Arbor College I met my husband we dated for 2.5 years and were married in July of 2000.
Our parenting life started in May of 2003, We are now blessed with 5 beautiful children. My family and I moved to New Jersey 3 years ago because of my husband’s job. When we first move to New Jersey we settled into Paramus. After realizing how extremely busy Paramus was we decided last June to move our family to Ringwood for a slower pace of life.
Our family attends Powerhouse Christian Church where we've been attending for 2.5 years now.
I'm a whole foods, organic eating and natural living kind of gal. I enjoy cooking, baking, crafts, scrapbooking, playing the piano, and reading (of course when I have time) and being with my family.
Mops has been a part of my life since my son was 2 years old over 10 years ago. I met a wonderful lady and friend who reach out to me when I knew no one during one of our moves in MI. She invited me to come to her MOPS group and I've been a part ever since. This year has come with new experiences within MOPS for me as I’ve been Co-Coordinating a new MOPS group in my church. It has been a huge blessing to serve this new group of moms and watching them “BE Brave” in their motherhood.
