We held a meeting at our home last night for an organization in which we are involved. Children were running around or playing with toys while the adults began the meeting. Monica sat with us when we opened with prayer and she also offered her intentions. Then each couple introduced themselves and gave a brief description of their involvement in the ministry. When all the couples had introduced themselves, Monica spoke up. “I am Monica Jakubisin. I help get ready for the meetings and I help watch over the children.” The meeting went on, but we reflected later how significant it was that she spoke up. Monica has a real sense of self and her contributions. She believed she had a role and it was natural for her to introduce herself. We are so proud of her.
