Through the Work of Their Hands

I have been blessed with two special women in my life who exemplify "serving with gladness," my mother, Gladys, and my mother-in-law, Mary Ann. Both women were avid quilters and knitters. They showed their love for others through the work of their hands. Items were prayerfully constructed for fundraising events and for use by ministry partners including Orphan Grain Train and Project Linus as well as local hospitals and care facilities. Their visible legacy of love and compassion included baby blankets and hats, lap robes, prayer shawls, and quilts. These gifts provided warmth and joy to their recipients.

Lutheran Women in Mission support the world around us through our prayers, our mites, and our service. How will you support Lutheran Women in Mission during our "September to Remember" day of giving?
