I went online the other day to check my WELS subscriptions, as it had been awhile! I scrolled to the very bottom of the WELS homepage and found the link to Subscriptions. Clicked on Subscriptions and there it was! There are 17 different Subscriptions for you to choose from! I made sure I was signed up for the Daily Devotions, the WELS Nurses Association newsletter, His Hands newsletter from Special Ministries and found something else that was of interest to me recently! They offer a subscription to a Weekly Military Devotion! So I signed up and sure enough, it came this morning! And although I am not active or retired military or do not have family serving in the military I thought the devotion, written by Pastor Paul Ziemer, WELS National Civilian Chaplain and Liaison to the Military to be excellent!

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:
