Our friends at BELONG sponsor MOPS International would like to invite you to join their movement to transform the journey of motherhood.

Look up. Look at the stars. Since the beginning of time, the sky has been the Maker’s manuscript, whispering truths to us; truths about who we are and why we’re here; reminding us that someone has gone before us and left glimmering lights to guide us home.

We are people who are meant to live by sunlight and moonlight, but the nagging question beating in our chests is, “Are we fully living in both?”

Sometimes we think we have to pick one, when in reality it is always both. Yet often our tendency is to cling to one, the one that is more comfortable, forgetting that our fullest living comes when we embrace the swirly mix.

What could it look like for you to be a Starry Eyed woman?

Starry Eyed is looking for the light even when darkness is enveloping in the world around you. It is an opportunity to hope recklessly and to witness God’s presence guiding things seen and unseen, comfortable and uncomfortable. It means deciding to live fully by both sunlight and moonlight. Because audacity is rising in the deepest and wildest parts of our souls. And the best part is, we can experience it all together.

So the question becomes:

When was the last time you felt fully alive?
The last time you were so swept up with wonder that it took your breath away?
That kindness made you feel powerful?
Or audacious hope unraveled fear?

We believe this is the year to experience all of it.

Starry Eyed is seeing the light in the darkness and choosing to live courageously in both.
It is opening our eyes to wonder and choosing hope over fear.

Starry Eyed is significant acts of kindness that send ripples of light into the world.
It is a choice to live fully and wholly and to breathe our way back to life.

If you feel anxious and don’t know why …
If you are busy and distracted from the things you truly care about …
If you are restless for an unexpected encounter with God …
If you long to feel alive, to regain a sense of wonder, to hope a little freer and to be a powerful force of kindness in the world, then we’d love for you to join us in becoming Starry Eyed.

All over the world, women just like you are becoming Starry Eyed. They are joining the movement and transforming the journey of motherhood. What about you? What could a Starry Eyed year look like for you?

Some are joining MOPS or MOMSnext groups with other moms, because finding a place to belong and experiencing authentic community with other women raising the next generation is powerful. Many others are starting new groups in their communities. They see moms around them who need to experience God’s love. They know there are women in need of a place to come just as they are for honest conversation with women who get them. In starting a MOPS group they’re experiencing the gift of being an influencer, a world-changer.

Find out more about starting a MOPS or MOMSnext group in your community. We know that exploring the start of something new takes risk; we also know that it’s worth it. Look up, because together, we are the Starry Eyed.
