groups are forming
Moms' groups for the Cottonwood area are starting up for the 2013-14 year. Last year over 30 women gathered in small book groups to support each other in the aspects of faith, family, and friendship.
Two books are offered this year.
Smart Martha's Catholic Guide for Busy Moms by Tami Kiser takes its start from the scripture Luke 10:41 "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things." This book encourages women to be a "Smart Martha," keeping one eye on the task at hand and the other on the Lord. Cost $12.
Parenting with Grace: A Catholic Parents' Guide to Raising (Almost) Perfect Kids by Gregory K. Popcak, MSW, LCSW, and Lisa Popcak helps parents discover their own God-given instruction manual for raising their children. Cost $11.
Three Smart Martha groups are available--Monday evening, Wednesday morning, or Thursday evening. Each will have its own schedule, tentatively meeting once each month. The Parenting with Grace group will meet Thursday mornings, every other week.
Hopefully, babysitting services will be exchanged among the members of the groups.
A group order for books will be placed on Tuesday, October 8th, or you may obtain a copy on your own.
Everyone is welcome!! You do not need to be a mom to join us!! And though the reading material comes from Catholic authors, women of any faith background are encouraged to participate!!
Please spread the word and invite anyone you think may be interested.
To join or for more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lynn Goeckner (962-3133), Julie Sonnen (962-2368), or Elizabeth Nuxoll (962-7207).
