I first joined the CWL back in 2011 - and by "joined" I mean my Mother-in-Law coaxed me to add my name to this organization, to increase our numbers for when we petitioned the Government. I even allowed her to pay my dues!
Just before Christmas of 2015, I got a call. I had been nominated to the Executive of the CWL Council, as Christian Family Life Chair, and would I allow my name to stand for election? What? Me? I've never even been to a meeting! Why would someone nominate me for anything? But something small and quiet in my heart whispered - let your name stand.
