Cindy Davis, (coordinator of Women's Ministry)
will present a talk titled "Gifted and Grace Filled"  How often do we not realize how gifted we really are? God has blessed each one of us with gifts and showered us with the grace to live into those gifts. Cindy will introduce us to the heart of Naomi and help us discover God’s gifts and grace in each of our lives and teach us how to start a 'Faith Tree'. She will have copies of her books available for sale. 
Anne Duran (Director of All Angels Episcopal Day School in ABQ) is well qualified to speak to us about "Everyday Blessings".  We will develop a "Blessing Jar" to take home and further reflect on the everyday blessings in our lives.
Kim will also provide supplies to make six faith-based cards using Stampin' Up! products. You will need to bring your own adhesive, but everything else you need will be provided for you.  The cards will be the perfect tool for you to take home and use to minister to and bless the people in your life.  Receiving a hand-stamped, faith-based card with hand-written words of encouragement on the inside?  Well ~ that's priceless!

DOK Triennial June 20-24, 2018 in Austin, Texas. "Walk HIS Way!" This theme is based on "Beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news" (Romans 10:15).  We will learn about evangelism and revival while we learn to Walk HIS Way! More info on the National website and in the Royal Cross.

General Convention 2018 July 5-10 in Austin is also a time to hold in prayer.

Praying Deeper: Deborah Smith Douglas will be the keynote speaker at the Daughters of the King Assembly on August 4 at the Bosque Center.

Boldly Forward, A Summer 2018 Bosque Weekend will be August 17-18, 2018 as we evaluate and look at the direction we want to move in as we welcome a new Bishop. (this will take the place of the Nov. Bosque weekend, due to the Bishop’s consecration events.) This will be a weekend to vision our ministry as and with and to all women of the Diocese of the Rio Grande. It will be an exciting time of worship, inspiration, and growth. We'll explore what some of the Godly women of our faith history can teach us and be inspired to live out our ministries more fully.
