The purpose of the Christian Life Committee is to provide materials to engage, encourage, and equip women to grow in their Christian faith and service.

Experience JOY in the journey as you share LWML Bible studies and products with your districts and zones, and especially your webmaster, so that these resources may reach and benefit each society and LWML member. The easiest way to get started is to view the LWML Store.

ENGAGE:  The Christmas season is a great time of year to engage young and old in the love that is God! Available as free printable downloads on the LWML website are notecards and bookmarks ready for coloring. Check out the new Christmas selection. Plant the seeds of God's love and grace by sharing these colorful bookmarks or Mustard Seed Devotions. Put them in Christmas cards, goodie bags to be given away to nursing homes, first responders, or new church members! LWML has many great Mustard Seed topics to choose from, including large print versions. See pages 11-13 of the online catalog for these short Scripture and prayer devotions that equip us to Begin with God and engage in the Race of Faith.

ENCOURAGE:  District and Zone Christian Life Chairmen can encourage groups and individuals to lead or participate in a new Bible study. Whether women need to confront Whatever ... Life Brings,experience Living with Pain, or share a Mountaintop Journey with Jesus, LWML offers Bible studies and prayer books in print, on CD, or in downloadable formats. View pages 6-8 of the catalog for great ideas.

ENJOY:  Why not begin and enjoy the New Year with a new Bible? The new Today's Light Bible and LWML Butterfly Bible Cover will get you started right. As you make plans to attend the 75th Anniversary Convention, consider the opportunity of spending a few moments working the Christian Life booth in the display area. A call for workers with time selections will follow in February. Contact information for new District Christian Life Chairmen may be sent to

 CLC Thoughts: What a privilege as Christian Life leaders to provide opportunities and ideas for sharing God's Word. We just need to offer ideas and specific information on where to find them. Begin your search for materials online at the LWML website or call CPH at 800-325-3040 to place an order.

Please make time to share the online LWML Catalog and Bible studies with your districts and zones. This is the best way to reach each society with resources! And remember all LWML resources have passed LCMS doctrinal review.                                             

One last request: if your district has a new District President or Christian Life leader, please send her name and email address to, so she can be added to the distribution list. Also, please forward this to anyone in your district that might find this information helpful – including your webmaster!

Blessings as you serve Him.
