Y’all have heard the buzz, right?
You know, the one about having over 100 women leading Thrive Mom Local groups all over the United States and Canada? Thrive Local has been a big dream of ours for some time now, and seeing the Lord's blessings through it all has been incredibly humbling.
What is Thrive Local? Thrive Local is Local groups meet every other week in a laid back and comfortable way that fits each specific group. Some groups may be small and intimate and some may be large and loud. We all come together with one purpose: to draw closer to the heart of God in community with one another. It is also a place to let your guard down, to come together and support one another. Each group is locally supported by moms with a passion for community and connecting with women right where they are.
During the week of June 9th over 100+ Thrive Mom Local leaders will be hosting gatherings in your area to celebrate this exciting new facet of Thrive Moms. 1 Peter 4:10 says "God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another." This is our inspiration for these parties and we love how it speaks to using the gifts He has blessed us with to serve others together. Which is why we are super excited to partner with Sole Hope again, as many of our groups are planning their launch parties coinciding with a shoe-cutting party! There will be no specific place or time required, no "rules," no anxiety, just genuine, authentic community. That is, after all, what it's all about. Community, togetherness in Him. For Him.
So are you ready to join a local group in your area? View our Thrive Mom Local Directory! Once you request access into your Thrive Mom Local group has been approved, you will see a little hello from your leader and as a group you will start to build your Thrive Mom Local Launch Party!

Thrive Mom Connection Groups What are Thrive Mom Connection Groups like? There are many ways to use the virtual connection groups! They are intended to grow authentic community and help each mother grow closer to Christ. One of the most impactful & important parts of the connection groups is the monthly Google+ chats. These are great because they give you the chance to actually see & hear one another! In addition, you can use these as a virtual Bible study where you can go through the Word together and then discuss it together.
Outside of the monthly chats, virtual groups can be designed to meet the members’ needs. Many ladies have used Facebook groups or texting (GroupMe is a great app for this!) to check in with each other daily. You can share prayer requests, funny stories or just chat. The most important thing is that each momma feels connected. Sometimes, it can be awkward or even scary to reach out at first to moms you don’t know. However, being apart of authentic, real community is such a vital part of our walk with Christ (and as apart of our journey as moms).
Our summer Connection Groups launch today! We are excited for the hundreds of women to join in intimate community together!
We weren’t meant to do this thing called life alone!
