Parish Nurse News

It is very apparent that our families, here at David’s Star, value nurturing the spiritual health of our children through Christian education! What a blessing! We start to teach our children about the love of our Savior through programs like JAM (Jesus and Me) for our toddlers, preschool, grade school here at David’s Star, high school at KML and then opportunities at MLC and now Wisconsin Lutheran College. Do you know someone who might be interested in serving the Lord and His people in a health care profession?

The Ladies Aid would like to invite students, parents, grandparents or any others to their March 8th Guest Night! They have invited Linnea Booher and possibly a student of the Wisconsin Lutheran College to talk about the WLC Nursing Program! The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at WLC is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, providing students with a Christian focused, liberal arts education coupled with a strong science foundation, a valuable combination within the health care field.

Grounded in the principles of servant leadership, WLC nursing students learn the art and science of professional nursing in a Christian setting. The Class of 2017 had a 100% job placement rate within four months of graduation and a 100% pass rate for first-time test takers of the NCLEX (required for licensure).

Perhaps you have noticed the WLC student nurses around our campus here at David’s Star over the last 4 years? As part of their senior Community Health clinical experience they spend time with our grade school children, helping with various health screenings, providing some health education and even making some nursing home/shut-in visits with me as they learn about parish nursing!

Feel free to join the Ladies Aid on March 8th at 7:00pm to learn about the WLC nursing program! The Ladies Aid has decided to support the Nursing Program at WLC with a donation to the WELSNA/WLC Nursing Scholarship fund. Questions? Call me…

Blessings from our Great Physician,

5|150 Wellness Circle Program

The 5|150 Wellness Circle is a Scripture-based program centered on improving the overall health and wellness of individuals desiring to live a healthier life.  In 1 Corinthians 10:31, Paul reminds us that whether we eat or drink, we should do it for the glory of God.  

The Wellness Circle is designed to help people adjust their priorities to include better nutrition and exercise habits, one fruit/vegetable serving and 10 minutes of exercise at a time.  After 2-3 months, our goal is that each participant is achieving 5|150 or 5 servings of fruits & vegetables per day and 150 minutes of exercise per week.  The program consists of 10 sessions to help you meet the 5|150 goal as a circle.  

The David’s Star Wellness Circle will begin meeting in the Multi-Purpose Room September 14th from 8:30-9:30am.  For more information, please contact:  

RSVP to Pam Lee RN   262.377.9419 or

What happens at support group meetings?
  1. Each session will explore a topic related to fruit & vegetable intake and exercise;
  2. Participants are asked to set weekly goals (and track progress) based on the topics to help them improve their fruit & vegetable intake and exercise habits;
  3. Barriers and successes are discussed within the group with the purpose of supporting each other and identifying areas to improve.

Know Any Nurses?  Maybe You can help!  

Christian Nurses are richly blessed-blessed to know Jesus as savior and blessed with valuable medical knowledge and skill-sets.  So it's only natural for them to want to network in order to grow their knowledge and skills, to fellowship with like-minded Christian nurses and to team up to help others in need.

That's what brought together a group of WELS nurses in the greater Milwaukee area last spring.  Since then they've been working toward establishing a national association of WELS nurses to facilitate all of the above.  To learn more, please check out their new website:
