Need Encouragement as a MOM?

Stephanie Shott encourages moms through her ministry called, The M.O.M. Initiative. I remember being a mom of young children--the exhaustion--feelings of inadequacy--and the desire to be the best mom I could be. Stephanie shares about an event coming up next summer you won't want to miss...

The M.O.M. Initiative...because we are BETTER TOGETHER

I understand how hard it is to be a teen mom and a single mom who is struggling to be all and do all - because I was one. 

Each day held its own basket full of burdens for a girl who wore too many hats and didn’t realize the significance of her role as a mother. I was a single mom without Christ, without a clue, and without a mentor. 

As the years passed, I married, and not long after that I became a Christian.  

Everything changed except that I still didn’t have a mentor and I barely had a clue. 

That was twenty-five years ago and as I reflect back on the seasons of my life, I can’t help but wonder where all the mentors were when I was raising my children. I remember looking up to several women in the church but was somehow unable to wiggle my way under their wing. 

I couldn’t help but wonder where all the mentors were. Where were those women who were willing to step into their Titus 2 shoes and pour their lives into other women? 

After becoming a ministry leader I discovered that mentoring tends to intimidate even the most courageous women. They wonder what they’ll talk about, what they’ll do. 

Many mentors lack the confidence to enter into a mentor/mentee relationship because they lack the resources and support. 

In January of last year, I started The M.O.M. Initiative to change all that.  

The M.O.M. Initiative is dedicated to help the body of Christ make mentoring not only mentor moms within the four walls of the church, but to reach out in the community and mentor moms in crisis pregnancy centers, homeless shelters, prisons, juvenile shelters, low income apartments and wherever young moms can be found. 

The ministry has snowballed and women are coming out of the woodwork to change their communities and this culture through the power of mentoring. 

I’m super excited to share with you about a conference coming to the Southeast for MOMS, MENTORS, and MINISTRY LEADERS!
