All this is true, because Every Family Needs Jesus. I hear story after story from dads who share how MOPS has impacted their marriages and families. I see moms grow in their parenting skills as they form friendships with women who become their champions and mentors. I hear amazing stories of life change as moms share how they came to realize the incredible love God has for them and discovered who God formed them to be.”
