At the 2019 LWML Convention in Mobile, Alabama, Marilyn McClure was invited to be the presenter at a banquet for Heart to Heart Sisters District Leader trainees and their district presidents. At the invitation of the 2019–2021 national Heart to Heart Sisters Committee, she created two educational videos based on her presentation.
In 2001, the Gospel Outreach Committee, of which Marilyn was a member, was asked by then-LWML President Virginia von Seggern to develop a program to ensure that women of all ethnicities could feel welcome and participate in LWML. This was the beginning of the Heart to Heart Sisters program.
Marilyn and her husband, Rev. Garry, served as missionaries in Guatemala for many years. She is fluent in Spanish and upon their return to the States, she was a bilingual teacher. She has served the LWML in many positions on local, district, and national levels. Marilyn is a strong advocate for an inclusive Heart to Heart Sisters program, inviting all women to participate in the mission of the LWML.
Two video segments are available for viewing. They offer insights, encouragement, and assurance for those who are building an intentional Heart to Heart Sisters program on the district level.
