Tips for Leading with Confidence

Dear LWML Leaders,

Welcome back to Tips for Leading with Confidence.  As we celebrate Mother’s Day soon, we look to ways to connect women of all generations so they are enabled to serve our Lord through the LWML. We welcome your suggestions for ways to connect women of all ages.

Connecting Generations

Each generation is unique. Be creative in breaking down barriers between generations, showing it is beneficial as we serve Christ together. A multi-generational event for Mother’s Day might connect a young woman who has lost her mother with an older woman who has no grandchildren.

God's Blessings,

Tips for Leading with Confidence

Dear LWML Leaders,

Welcome back to Tips for Leading with Confidence.  The Leadership Development Committee is praying for you and your upcoming zone spring events. 

Spring Workshop Information

Time for your Spring Workshop/Event? Share a little information about the location. A bit of trivia about the congregation or the city is always fun. Participants may want to make a quick visit to a museum, park or shopping center before heading home. Clue them in on the local’s favorite shops or attractions in town.

God's Blessings,

Meetings with Meaning

Tips for Leading with Confidence

Dear LWML Leaders,

Welcome back to Tips for Leading with Confidence. We pray these will be helpful as you serve our Lord with gladness.

Meetings with Meaning

Meetings are necessary to conduct the business of LWML, but they don't have to be long snooze fests! Below are some tips to help with efficiency.

  • Prayer, devotions and Bible study — Keep God the central focus of your entire gathering. Never omit time in prayer and in the Word! Browse free downloadable program helps for ideas.

  • Planning — What do you want to accomplish in Jesus’ name? Evaluate your agenda, asking if each item has meaning.

  • Meeting Packet — Consider sending via email a copy of the minutes, financial report, officer and committee reports 7–10 days prior the meeting. This allows members to arrive informed and prepared.

  • Business — Encourage officers and committee chairmen to bring recommendations and motions prepared in writing. (The secretary will love you!)

  • Mission and Mites Update — Keep the focus mission-minded with information regarding district and national mission grants and the status of the mite goal. Learn more about national mission grants. View the status of the national mite goal.

  • Open and close with prayer and thanksgiving for our Lord’s blessings.

  • Evaluate — Were all participants enriched? Was this gathering worth everyone’s time and energy?

What have you done to make your meetings more efficient and meaningful? We welcome your tips and suggestions.

God's Blessings,
