No Mom Alone: MOPS International Offers Encouragement, Support and Community to New Moms through Momology
DENVER, CO (Nov. 18, 10) — MOPS International, Mother of Preschoolers, announces the No Mom Alone Campaign and Momology, Special Edition: A Mom’s Guide to Shaping Great Kids, by Shelly Radic. The Special Edition is a CBA (Association for Christian Retail) Channel Exclusive, created in partnership with MOPS International and Revell Books, A Division of Baker Publishing Group. The No Mom Alone Campaign, a national outreach effort between MOPS and CBA, was designed to encourage new moms in the early years of mothering and bring them to a MOPS community.
NO MOM ALONE
Each year, more than four million babies are born in the United States. Early motherhood is a distinct time when many moms feel isolated and alone. For many women, the challenges of early motherhood lead them to seek connection with other moms and search for a faith community. Through the No Mom Alone Campaign, any mom can benefit from Momology by learning about the four essential elements of mothering. MOPS walks alongside mothers to encourage, equip and develop all moms in these essential areas.
MOPS groups and CBA bookstores are partnering with local churches nationwide to give books to new moms, equipping them for the joys and challenges of mothering. With every purchase of Momology, Special Edition, a mom will receive encouragement and practical help along with the opportunity to join a mom community that will offer the support she needs during early motherhood.
MOMOLOGY, Special Edition: A Mom’s Guide to Shaping Great Kids
For almost 40 years, MOPS has been reaching out and listening to mothers, drawing them into supportive mothering communities. Written by Shelly Radic, Interim CEO of MOPS International, Momology is based on research gathered from thousands of moms by MOPS and includes foundational principles from experts on families such as the Search Institute, the YMCA and Barna Group. The Special Edition, which offers parenting and personal help to new moms, also includes an exclusive chapter on birth-order challenges from renowned psychologist Dr. Kevin Lehman. Purchasers may sign an encouraging message inside the book to give to a new mom or leave it with the retailer to package and provide to a local MOPS group, church, hospital, or pregnancy center. Book recipients receive a free MOPS membership that includes a subscription to a MOPS e-zine on mothering issues, resources, and other support. Moms are also invited to connect with other local moms for support and encouragement.
