Years in MOPS: 4 Children: Kate-4, Brock-18 mos Neighborhood: Coles Crossing Special Interests: PRN Pharmacist at Target, loves to run/ exercise and read. If I had 24 hours to myself, I would… have every spa treatment known to man done. My favorite fair food is… frozen goodies.

Rachel Norris is not surprised that she is a potter, but she is amazed at how God has used pottery in her life. She has been making pottery for over twenty years now. She and her husband own Joy Pottery in Bryan, Texas where they make and sell handmade, functional stoneware. She loves to work with clay because it is an incredibly versatile material, so very individual and universal at the same time. You are invited to come and learn more about the Heavenly Father by exploring a word picture He provides in His Word. Discover the richness of the layers of meaning in the portrayal of the potter and the clay by observing the work of a

potter firsthand. You will be awed and amazed by the insights into the hand of God in your own life through this experience.

The Gift Shop
As I stare into my baby’s eyes and stroke her soft cheeks, I’m captivated by what an amazing work of art she is. Any mom, especially the mother of a newborn, can’t help but look at her child and wonder if we could ever be given a greater gift. The answer is, “YES!” Romans 6:23 says, “… the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Through Jesus, we are set free from sin and given new life in Christ. As you prepare your hearts for Easter, remember that of all the perfect gifts we’ve received from our Heavenly Father, the greatest is that of salvation through Jesus Christ.

Please take time with your children to thank the workers in your child’s room for a great MOPPETS year. Your child might want to draw a picture or write a special note for the teachers in their class. MOPS wouldn’t be the same without our wonderful MOPPETS program.
