We are Mothers of Preschoolers, and we believe that better moms make a better world!
We are a non-denominational group of moms that meets every other Friday from 9am to 11:30am from September through May at our host church, Solana Beach Presbyterian Church (Map). Join our community of moms as we share the joys and challenges of motherhood
together (while enjoying a shared potluck brunch)!

The 2017-2018 theme is “Free Indeed” based on the theme verse “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor, he has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” – Luke 4:18-19
Choosing freedom is a deeply spiritual act, one that our souls long for. That is why this year, we choose wild, unexpected freedom; the kind that brings more laughter and less worry, more contentment and less hustle. Freedom that is so contagious, the people around us are compelled toward their own liberation.
In order to unfold our wings this year, we will…
Let Love Be The Loudest Voice
Sometimes, especially as moms with young kids, life can sneak up on us, and we don’t realize that we have gotten stuck. Stuck in patterns of thinking or habits that are holding us captive.
This is the year that changes, this is the year we will stop settling for what simply gets us by and do the work to get to what’s best. We will parent with fresh perspective and will treat ourselves with tenderness, because love is the loudest voice we hear, and it is proclaiming freedom and favor.
Sometimes we don’t take responsibility for our lives. We carry the weight of expectations, feeling out of control over the pace and trajectory of our days. This is the year of release from believing life has to look a certain way, and isn’t there so much freedom and audacity in that? The truth is, we have more authority to shape our daily lives than we think we do. Your life can match your values and your passions, it will just take some guts to make it happen.
Going first is about being courageous enough to take steps before you are ready, to share the details of your journey, to extend invitations and conquer fears, and lead the way for friends and kids and family. In fact, one of the best ways to advocate for others’ freedom is to go first ourselves, and then we can share with courage and honesty because we have found the keys of freedom.
This year may we experience a new understanding of what it means to live FREE INDEED.
