Every once in a while you meet someone who just thinks like you and does things like you and it's just pretty cool! That happened to me recently. And it's fun because she is quite a lot younger than me! She has twin boys and well, I am married to a twin...
One of my volunteer jobs is working with the women's ministry at our church. I LOVE women's events. I think it goes back to my college days when I loved my social service club. LOVED singing devotional songs with those girls, doing all that fun college stuff together. So anyway, I work with a program called RefresHER. It is a quarterly event for women that involves dinner and a speaker, kind of a mini-retreat. A big part of my job is recruiting different classes in our church to host it - along with giving them some basic guidelines. I help in various ways and usually run the sound system and powerpoint at the event. It's fun because I always meet new people and especially love getting to know the young mothers!
Back to my soul sister - the young mother that chaired this event last night. Everything she did, from the decorations to the food to the door prizes was just what I would have done! Crazy! The theme was "RefresHER goes Back To School" and three women spoke about different aspects of teaching. One had not grown up in a Christian home, but an aunt was her Christian mentor and sent her to Bible camp and took her to church as a teen. Another spoke about how she came to the decision to become a teacher after an unpleasant experience in elementary school. The last young mother spoke about the responsibility she has to raise godly sons. It was a great evening and I'm so blessed to have these new friends!
Awesome young women of the Christian Couples class
Such cute tables!
My soul sister!
