Leader instructions

Known as the “dog days of summer,” August reminds us that the end of summer is fast approaching. Our thoughts turn to the fall when a new school year starts. Younger students are returning to school, older students are returning to college. Still others are starting new careers, and maybe some families are moving to new homes before the cold weather returns.

Hello from LWML! 

Every year a new group of young adults moves away from home to join the military, attend college or trade school, or enter the workforce. It’s a challenging time for parents as they learn to let go and encourage independence. Read the devotion Remembering Whose We Are and pray for our children, youth, and young adults as they move into a new phase of life. 

As always, contact me with any questions. You are in my daily prayers.

Your Sister in Christ,
