Q. How do I submit a recipe, story, tip or idea to MOPS International’s Hello, Dearest blog?

A. We love submissions from you – our audience! Keep in mind our average reader is a mother of preschoolers (infants through kindergarten) and between the ages of 25 and 40, although we welcome and encourage content for mothers outside these demographics. MOPS International seeks to meet the needs of every mom – urban and suburban moms, stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single and married moms – moms with different lifestyles who all share a similar desire to be the very best moms that they can be.

We’re currently accepting submissions for:

  • DIY – specific directions for crafting, building and re-purposing items that will make a mom’s life easier, save her money or just make her world more beautiful. Please include images {at least 720 pixels wide} of each step in the DIY process including the finished product.
  • Inspiration – humorous, encouraging or thought-provoking personal stories that will nurture the reader as a mother and/or woman and encourage her in her vital role. Hello, Dearest does not accept devotions. Please avoid Christian jargon and use biblical quotes sparingly. Inspiration submissions should be between 450-600 words.
  • Recipes – tasty, unique and/or kid-friendly recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. Seasonal, freeze-ahead, slow cooker, baked good and drink recipes also welcomed. Please include image {at least 720 pixels wide} of the dish. Images of each step in the cooking/baking process also appreciated.
  • Tips – ideas to make a mom’s life easier including but not limited to organization, planning, scheduling, parenting, relationships, traveling and budgeting. Tip submissions should be between 200-600 words.

Hello, Dearest does not publish or promote single opinions on controversial subjects that divide our readers. These include doctrinal, political and social subjects as well as parenting issues that bring up strong emotions. While the decisions that you’ve made for your family may come up in your submission, do not assume that all readers will see things the same way.

Compensation for writing for Hello, Dearest is promotion of you and your blog/website via your bio at the end of your post. Your bio may include up to three outside links.
