From Our President

Wow! Y’all elected me to be your president! I am humbled and honored to accept the privilege of serving as your new president. I am grateful for the trust you have placed in me. I am filled with enthusiasm and, frankly, a bit of anxiety as I assume my new duties.

As I think about our future service together, I am reminded of the countless ways God has blessed me through this organization. It began with a very simple invitation to attend my first meeting. There I encountered other women who loved Jesus and wanted to proclaim Christ as Savior, seeking ways to serve. I found opportunities to develop a servant’s heart through simply saying “yes” to helping with VBS, Bible studies, writing a workshop, serving meals in a soup kitchen, making bed runners for hospice patients, and more. Working alongside others as a committee member or chairman infused my heart with joy as, together, we served the Lord with gladness. Having the privilege to serve at the zone and district levels, including as a district vice president honed my leadership skills, again, teaching me what team ministry looks like. All along the way I was enabled to mentor others the way I had been mentored. And here we are. I anticipate more blessings and more learning. It won’t be my presidency or my legacy, it will be ours. Together with the amazing team you have elected to serve alongside me, we will be seeking God’s will as we plan. I will be surrounding myself with former presidents as advisors and asking others for help in my areas of weakness. I want to hear your ideas. How can the district help you as you serve Jesus through Lutheran Women in Mission?

I ask you to lift up each officer and committee chairman by name in prayer, including me. Let us support and encourage one another, as we share the love of Christ with those in need.

I invite you to read Ephesians 3 beginning at the 14th verse. The heading in my Bible calls it a “Prayer of Spiritual Strength.” I have and will continue to use this as my prayer as I serve you as president. The closing words of that chapter (verses 20–21) state, Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
