Happy New Year! Let's Rejoice!

[Silver Spring, MD] Celebrate with praise to God! Women’s Ministries is 20 years old! Yes, my dear sisters, General Conference Women’s Ministries is celebrating its 20th birthday as an official department of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. What a way to begin the New Year as we celebrate God’s leading and abundant blessings. Looking back at the past 20 years, we can see many hills and valleys in our journey but through it all we can also rejoice. 

I love the words of Solomon, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end” (Eccl 3:11). As sisters we know what God has done for us, His daughters. He has affirmed us, renewed us, filled us, empowered us, nurtured us and given us a sense of purpose and direction. So as we go forward into 2015, rejoice that God made you a woman. His child. His treasure.
