Women's Ministry

God's timing is always perfect. He will grand our hearts' desires even before we knew it.

I started social networking via Facebook and Blogger because of my son's family moving away. Learning a new way to communicate was challenging but fun.  Little did I know that this learning and fun would become useful to the women's ministry in our church. 

I have always wanted to be part of the planning team but it seemed to be a far fetch goal for me for years.  This year, when the team was considering a new way to connect with the ladies in our church, I put in my two-cents about an online communication group. Guess what?  I was blessed with the task of heading it up!
I started with the Facebook group and pray over it everyday.  This group is by invitation only so it calms the concerns of privacy issue.

I pray that God will bless and grow this venue of reaching out to more ladies in our church.  However, I am very mindful that the one-on-one is still the best way to build any long lasting relationship.

What a fun ministry to head and how neat to see God building skills in you to use for that!

I came from TNAT and have a quick question: you say in this post your son's family moving away. But I assume you're the mom in the 'about' photo. Do you have a son who is older and not in this photo? Sorry just confused about your family.

Hi Katie,
Yes I do have an older and two grandkids. My baby and my grandson are the same age. My baby is another surprise blessing from the Lord. :)
