  How Are You Exploring "A Time to Serve" in Your Ministries?
Share your ideas with others through the Leader's Reader! How have you used the theme "A Time to Serve" in your women's ministry group, girls ministry group, congregation, or area/region events? Have you written devotionals, or new lyrics to a hymn, or planned special program activities to help women and girls explore the theme more fully? Send a brief write-up (and pictures, if you have them) to info@abwministries.org. We may be able to share your ideas in future issues of the Leader's Reader or on our website.

  New -- In Their Shoes: Hope in the Midst of Depression
Depression has affected women from biblical times to today. In our women’s and girls’ ministries, therefore, depression is an issue we should engage clearly and with hope, offering women and girls the tools and support they need to effectively address the depression they may be experiencing. In this booklet, you will find Bible studies, program session plans, activities for children, recommended resources for further study, and many other ways to begin digging into the issue of depression and how it affects us or our loved ones.
