Some of our women at the annual DWM Fall Retreat held at Bethany Hills Church Camp in Kingston Springs, TN.
On June 8th we will have a hybrid meeting. Please feel free to join us in the Parlor or virtually on Google Meet at 10 am. Nicole will send out that link closer to the meeting time. I hope you can join us!
We were blessed to have 11 ladies join us at our meeting in May. I am thankful and hopeful that our numbers will increase as we continue. We still want to keep some of our friends and family in prayer: Kim and Claire Mobley, Ellen Garrison, JoEllen Smith, Tommye Latham, Lisa Beasley, Cathy Crabtree’s father, Jerry Johnson, Karen Luther’s son Brad, Josh Martin, Mike Martin and all our homebound friends
Some of our ladies attended a Spiritual Journey meeting that was held in April on Zoom. President Debra Reid opened the meeting with 78 Disciples women in attendance. It was a time of renewal that included several speakers. Rev. Sunny B. Ridings, Service Minister of First Christian Church, discussed the topic of Refueling our Body and Soul through prayer, reading the Bible, cleansing and confession. Rev. Dr. Tara Faith Williams, Interim Pastor of New Covenant Christian Church, asked the viewers, “How is Your Heart?”, to which she followed with a great message and told us to breathe in, breathe out; Peace be still. Rev. Dr. Carla Norton, Chaplain of Methodist LeBonnear Health Care, took us through a ten-point process.
1.Find a purpose
3,Develop a strong social network
5.Be optimistic-Serenity Prayer
7.Develop problem solving skills
9.Take time for yourself
10.Keep working on your skills
Wonderful words and ideas that we can all benefit from.
On a personal note:
As restrictions are lifted and many of us are vaccinated, now is a time for us to renew our friendships. This month I thought we could look at what the Bible tells us about friendship. The link below will take you to 25 Bible verses focused on friendship.
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing 1Thessalonians 5:11
May your life be blessed with beautiful friendships,
Meredith Akkerman, 2021 DWM President
