Sexpectations - The Word says it all
Mike Novotny

I noticed this title in a recent Forward in Christ and it caught my eye! Because part of my role as parish nurse requires that I am aware of the various resources within Synod, I ordered a copy to see what this was all about. In the introduction Pastor Novotny tells us why he wrote a book talking about sex. Because THE WORLD IS talking about it, PARENTS AREN’T, and GOD DOES! He then goes on to explain that Sex is Good, Sex is Work, Sex is Fiery, and Sex is Unnecessary. Each chapter is fashioned like a bible study with a study guide, a prayer and a place to journal at the end of the chapter. Interested in taking a look at it? I’ll leave my copy in the health office on the filing cabinet; feel free to borrow mine or order your own copy from Time of Grace! It would be a good study guide for parents, couples and singles…

SAVE THE DATE! Many have wondered how we might support the Janet & Jesse Kremer family whose daughter is going through long and aggressive treatment for leukemia at Children’s Hospital. One way to show your support to the family would be to donate blood! Miriam is a freshman at KML. KML is hosting a blood drive on January 22nd! Registration opens the week before the drive and community members are encouraged to call the school office to register. Mark your calendars and feel free to check with me or the school office with any questions.

News Flash! The OWLS Chapter from Peace Hartford is going to host the 2020 bus trip to the August 26th Milwaukee Brewers vs. Minnesota Twins afternoon game! More information to come. We look forward to the opportunity to join with them in attending the game!

Blessings in the New Year,

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: www.welsnurses.net
