When I was asked to write about Shepherd of the Lake and my involvement in the church I was quick to say absolutely.  I have been a member for over 40 years. During the good and not so good times I  knew that I would receive the prayers and support I need! This was truly evident this past month when I was in Arizona and had some scary health issues!  Pastor Rebecca and so many of my church friends reached out to me and I truly felt their prayers.  I have learned over the years that it is so important to reach out to people and in turn you will be the one receiving blessings.        

Several  years ago a friend approached me about belonging to a group called 'Caring Friends".  At first I wasn't sure that I was healthy enough to help other people but I continued going to the group meetings.  What I have discovered is that I have gotten back so much more than I have given!  The Caring Friends group not only cares for people that we can befriend but we care for each other!                          

I am blessed!
