Moms Night Out (Alexis Collins)


The struggles in motherhood can cloud our minds and hearts, allowing our insecurities, doubts, lack of grace, fears and many other lies that creep into our everyday moments with our children. Whether we stay at home with our kids, work, or maybe even working from home; whether our children have a disability or we are raising them on our own, we all face different challenges as a mom. We need each other’s support and need to know that we are not alone.

If you are a mom in need of encouragement and fellowship please join us for “Moms Night Out” on Monday, January 19th from 6:45-9pm at Kings Harbor Church. We know many of you are not able to join one of the moms groups that happen during the day because of other schedule requirements and even those who are able to attend a moms group, but would love to hear about certain topics that will not be discussed this year at MOMs INC or Moms United. This is your chance to come and be with other moms who together seek God for the help we all desperately need as we raise and train these kids that God himself has given us. We will be discussing topics such as: Raising an only child, Taking our thoughts captive, Raising a child with special needs, The balance of being a working mom, and Raising children as a single mother.

Lets be women and mothers who gather together for support and growth, seeking our Father who wants to guide us on this journey he has set our feet on. It is by no mistake that we have the children God has given each of us. At times it may seem overwhelming or we may question God for giving us the children he has, thinking we are not equipped to handle the demands of motherhood. But let us not let the lies, fear, and anxiety keep us from the immeasurable love and grace our God is waiting to give us. He is a gracious God that wants us to walk in the freedom of knowing that he has already forgiven us for our mistakes. Come and be encouraged by each other and by the wisdom that other moms have to share with us. We look forward to seeing you there.

With Love, Alexis Collins and Joy Steed

About joymsteed

"This is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:4 I love this verse but the problem is I, more often than not, spend so much time rushing through the day that I don't think I really embrace what God is telling me through this verse. So, I am deciding to stand still or at least go slow and enjoy the days and the blessings that come, all of them; the ordinary and the extraordinary, the hard and the good, catching the moments wrapped up in each and giving thanks for the journey I am on. I am blessed to venture forward with my husband of 20 years and our two daughters, life has been hard and good and taken us places we never imagined we would go - both standing still and moving. God has been good and now as we enter a new stage, that point where our family road begins to have forks that are leading our girls to begin chapters in their stories that are separate from our story and although this excites me it also makes me wonder what's next for this mom, where do I go from here and what will this next chapter look like for me? I don't have the answers yet, what I do know though is that God is good and I know that He is going to lead and I will obediently follow, leaning in, standing still and rejoicing in the days ahead, the good and the hard days, the ordinary and the extraordinary days and the blessings wrapped in each. Thanks for stopping by and joining in my journey!
