Fallbrook Bonsall MOPS

  Better Moms make a better world 

Steering Team


Janelle Craven


I've been in MOPS for many years and I LOVE it. This will be my 3rd year as Coordinator. My husband Josh and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary this year. I'm lucky enough  to have found my soul mate! Josh is not only handsome, talented, motivated, and successful, but he is a man after God's own heart. I look up to him in so many ways! His love for the Lord is an awesome example to our family! We are so blessed and God has truly blessed our marriage. I love him SO! I have 3 beautiful & energetic kids. (Ashlynn - 9 1/2, Tyler - 8, and Brylee - 3 1/2). They keep me on my toes ALL day long. I love them more than they'll ever know. They consume the LOVE in my heart! My house is constantly a mess, but I know fun happens there and memories are being made. I love to be with my family. I love to shop. I love helping in my kid's classrooms. I love my long standing and building friendships. I love the idea of perspective. I think it's great how it can change any and all situations. I challenge myself to take in other's perspectives to give me a greater view of the life around me. I thank the Lord everyday for all the blessing in my life!

Assistant Coordinator

Lindsay Fried


My name is Lindsay, I'm a 30 something wife to Derek, a local firefighter, and a stay at home mommy to two sweet boys.  Articulate and funny Jack, age 4, and smiley and mischievous Frank, 8 months.  When the kids are in bed, I love to get cozy and read a book, preferably historical fiction or Christian apologetics to satisfy my geeky side, or get out my collection of sharpie markers and draw.  Having good old fashion conversation with my hubby or laughing together watching Duck Dynasty are other favorite pastimes of mine!

Table Leader Coordinator

Ashley Green


I'm married to my high school sweetheart of 20 years and we have two daughters together, ages 3 and 1. I'm an attorney and practiced law at a large firm for a number of years before having children. After our first daughter was born, I struggled with work/family balance and strongly felt the Lord calling me to stay home for awhile. I couldn't be happier and more confident in my decision to focus all my attention on my girls right now. I know that I will return to work at some point, as the Lord directs, but for now, I'm so thrilled to have these precious years with my kids!


Heather Tatzer


Thanks to my husband of 8 years, I've been very blessed to be a stay-at-home Mom to two beautiful miracles, Benny (4) and David (2). These two have our hearts wrapped around their tiny fingers! Besides chasing these two active boys all day, I also enjoy the beach, interior design, cooking, and makeup & fashion - though you'd never know it by my appearance most days! As I seek to know God better, I'm overwhelmed by His love for us as our Father, full of grace and mercy. As I'm learning how to be the Mom God intended me to be, His parenting style is the model I'd most like to follow.


Janae Kramer


I have three amazing children and a wonderful husband! We live in Fallbrook and attend Riverview church. I am blessed to be a stay at home mom. I enjoy watching my kids play soccer and do taekwondo, but most of all I love to go camping with family and friends. Although MOST days our life is messy, it's a beautiful one!

Melissa Petrone


I'm a 3/4 time stay-at-home Mom of two young girls, Giuliana (4) and Charlotte (2). When I'm not keeping up with their art projects, dancing, singing, and playing, I'm working at the Photo Lab at Costco. I've been married to my husband, J, for 6 years this November. We love music, amusement parks, and sushi!

To borrow the lyrics of Tom Petty, with a few changes...“She’s a good girl, loves her mama, loves Jesus, and America too. She’s mommy, crazy about Crossfit, loves horses, and her husband too."

MOPPETS Coordinator

I have two daughters who I've homeschooled and I have directed Vacation Bible School in the past. I love being part of this ministry that helps Moms have the time to learn how to be a better MOM and to grow in their walk with Christ. I enjoy coming up with creative crafts for your kids to enjoy as they attend the MOPPETS program.
