Try This: Encourage Your Small Groups to Help Mothers for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is the perfect time to kick off a new set of small groups for women interested in helping mothers across the globe. Encourage your women to invite their friends and neighbors to join a small group. For curriculum, consider The Mother and Child Project: Raising Our Voices for Health and Hope (Zondervan)—a book (and discussion guide) that promotes a movement to increase healthy pregnancies and decrease death rates worldwide.

Hope Through Healing Hands, a nonprofit working to educate women about newborn and child health, timing and spacing of pregnancies, clean water, HIV/AIDS, etc., compiled the book and offers helpful ideas and resources to get involved.
