• Trust and Talents #LWML40226
• Praise and Patience #LWML40225Writers of Christian Resources Needed:
Has God given you the gift to write? Are you willing to use that gift in service to the Lord through LWML? Do you know gifted writers among your LWML acquaintances who would be willing to use that gift in service to the Lord?
In this 2017-2019 biennium, the LWML Christian Resources Editors Committee is interested in receiving Bible studies, devotions, sketches (preferably four participants or less), litanies, readings, retreats/workshops, and icebreakers/mixers that will enable today’s women to grow in the Lord and impact their world for Christ, as well as add meaning and interest to their meetings and gatherings. Resources are used in the 2017-2019 Planner or as separate Program Helps available through the LWML website or the LWML Catalog. Submissions go through an extensive review (including The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod doctrinal review) before being used by LWML.
You may find helpful resources at www.lwml.org/events/program_helps. On this Web page there are links to Writer’s Guidelines, Printable Program Resources, and Bible studies.
