Motherhood is messy, but beautiful. MOPS President Sherry Surratt and MomLife Today founder Tracey Eyster team up to talk about the greatest challenge they’ve ever faced – being mothers. Together they talk about gaining motherly confidence, finding a mentor, and relying on the Lord to face the day-to-day.
Sherry Surratt is the President and CEO of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International, based in Denver, CO. Previous to joining MOPS, Sherry served as Director of Innovation Labs at Leadership Network and as a staff pastor at Seacoast Church in Charleston, SC. She is the proud mom of two brilliant children, Michael and Brittainy and a beautiful daughter in love, Hilary. She is ridiculously proud of her two beautiful granddaughters, Maggie and Mollie and lives with her pastor husband Geoff in Parker, CO. Sherry is the co-author of "Just Lead! A No Whining, No Compaining, No Nonsense Practical Guide for Women Leaders in the Church."
Tracey Eyster is the Founder and Executive Director of MomLife Today. Tenacity and a passion for momlife has fueled her relentless pursuit of following God’s call to speak wisdom and truth into the lives of moms through writing and speaking. Tracey is the mom of two, a teen and a 20 year old and her home is regularly full of their friends as she intentionally invests into their lives. She delights in doing video interviews and exploring momlife with all types of moms. Her first book, Be The Mom is available wherever books are sold. Tracey has been a mom since 1993 and she and Bill have been married for 27 years.
Tracey Says: “Hey – I’m Tracey Eyster, Implementer of Fun and the happily in love wife of Bill! My home is constantly filled with teenagers and college students– and that’s a good thing! My daughter is a Junior in college, my son a High School Senior and each is chasing after God and pursuing their natural bent. You might find us hiking, camping, kayaking, on a horse, a dirt bike, go cart, or four wheeler, but you definitely won’t find us sitting still…for long! Intentional parenting and relationship building are a priority in our home! And for the record – I never met a fresh baked chocolate laced cookie I didn’t like and housework is highly overrated!”
