And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God (Mark 10:13–14).
What will the LWML look like in ten years and beyond? How can we engage and retain our young women? One way is to grow together as a multigenerational LWML. There is that old saying, “the family that prays together, stays together.”
Shared experiences with your children like prayer, worshipping together, and attending LWML events together create opportunities for learning and living as a servant leader.
Consider planning family friendly LWML events that would allow your children to attend with you. Include youth leaders to assist you with your event planning and activities.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).
Many young women are active in their LWML groups, and many more have expressed an interest to participate more. Consider making the LWML a family affair. Let your daughters come with you as you serve Christ in the LWML. Click here to visit the Young Women page on our website. Your sons are welcome too. We need a strong partnership with our pastors, and your son could be your next zone pastoral counselor.
