MOMcon Recap!

For those of you who may not have heard, seven of our leaders went to Kansas City, Missouri prior to our last meeting for the MOPS International Conference, aka MOMcon. They spent 3 days learning valuable information on how to improve our MOPS group, how to be a better leader, how to be a better wife, and how to be a better mom (because we all know that better moms make a better world)! These ladies spoke at our September 25th meeting about various topics from MOMcon ranging from painful childhood memories all the way to friends and their underwear preferences!! We laughed and we cried together. We don’t want you to forget any of those precious resources that were mentioned, so here is a list of the ladies that spoke, the topic they spoke on, and any books, podcasts, websites, etc, that you may find useful.
