What is a Family Compassion Focus?, Who
Comment 1

Welcome Alameda MOPS!

Hello New Friends!

I was honored to be with you this morning at Bay Farm Church. I was deeply touched by the way you gather together to hear, encourage, and celebrate each other. I hope my stories were not burdensome to you. I pray that little seeds of hope and compassion were planted in your hearts. And please remember, you are already doing compassion every day.

Here are a few highlights and reminders:

If my messy family can practice Compassion, yours can too (read more here).

You might think you have Nothing, but God can make it Something (read more here). chicken dance feet 0915

If you don’t believe that I actually dressed up as a Chicken and did the Chicken Dance at the bus stop  because I love my daughter and the children of Haiti, here’s the evidence:

I shared a few tools at our meeting. But in case you left it on the table or the baby colored on it already here they are again:

  1. Some suggested resources: mops resource list
  2. A brainstorm page for your fridge or mirror: Family Compassion Fridge Worksheets mops
  3. The one important questions for living compassionately: daily question for mops
  4. Some of you asked for more information, more background, and more tips. I’m thrilled. Please roam around at www.familycompassionfocus.com. There are many more stories about our experiments, misadventures, and earnest efforts.
What Breaks Your Heart?

I ask a lot of Soul questions, about God, pain, surrender, compassion, and parenting. If you’d like to explore those posts, there’s a page on this blog called “Soul.” I hope you find something that resonates with you there. Find that here.
you're enough

Mama, you are working hard. You are doing good. I see it. God sees it. Please remember:
“Do not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)

You’re doing good.

You are loved.
