2015 August: Back to School

Back to School


Many of us are dictated by school schedules when it’s a time to start fresh and embrace new changes. Adapting to these new changes is easier for some than for others. But all of us can be challenged to make one important resolution: to spend time in God’s Word on a daily basis. In His Word our Lord reveals Himself and His will for our lives. His revelation informs our hearts, heads, and hands and transforms our lives and lifestyles.


2015 July: Summertime/Vacation


Easter came and went. Now that we’ve mourned Christ’s death and celebrated His resurrection, we’ve put the winter behind us. The plants and trees remind us of our new life in Christ as well. Seeing God’s plan for the season changes can draw us closer to Him during anytime of year. Psalm 24:1 says “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.”


2015 June: Convention Celebration

Convention Celebration: Sow, Nourish, Reap

There are 33 mission grants on the ballot. All are very exciting ministries. Our delegates and officers will prayerfully select and by the time we leave Des Moines, we will have new mission grants to prayerfully support.

It has been 30 years since LWML gathered in convention in Iowa. The world has seen many changes — dress, hair styles, communication, and technology — but the warm smiles and hospitality of the women of the Iowa Districts remains the same! They are preparing the way for each convention attendee to be fed by God’s Word and Sacrament, nurtured through worship and fellowship, and equipped to sow, nourish, and reap in the Lord’s harvest field long after the convention adjourns.
