Firstly I must say that I love the Mother's Union with a passion. I was first introduced to Mothers' Union as a young mum with 2 small children and attended many meetings before being deemed 'ready' to be enrolled in 1966. (It was a very different organisation 40+ years ago!)
Family has always been the most important thing in my life, and I very quickly absorbed all that the Mother's Union stood for and decided that this was what I believed in and where I wanted to be. What I most loved was the fact that everything we did was underpinned by Prayer.
Over the years I have held many positions, from Branch Committee to Deanery Committee, Branch Leader, Deanery Chair, Trustee, and for the last 6 years have been privileged to serve as Vice-President.
I have attended hundreds of meetings, been involved in numerous projects, and learned such a lot about all sorts of diverse situations and subjects and met so many very interesting people.
I have made many friends in the Mother's Union, it has been a huge part of my life and has made me the persons I am today, it has been my support in bad times and has shared my joy in good times.
I do want to say to you all, if you are approached to take on a position in the Mother's Union, please do not think that you could not do it. If I can, then anyone can, and I promise you would not regret it.
