Our mom’s conference ‘Hearts at Home’, is flying the coop with the blessing of our ‘mama bird’ organisation in Illinois. Our team leader, Simone Höger, unveiled our new name and logo last month at our our annual conference. 

Mütternanader is a German play on the words ‘Mothers  – with each other’. 

For the second year team members’ daughters have joined in to help. These chicks still in the nest are full of enthusiasm and energy. Mentoring the next generation!  It’s a delight!!!!

Our former team leader, Nikki Loernitzo passed the baton to Simone last spring and has been her coach this past year. Nikki took a leap out of her comfort zone and taught a workshop (on marriage). Even though she was nervous, she spoke with understanding, heart, humor and authority. 

It’s exciting to see women step out and use their gifts and see what God does!!!

Our first women’s evening, lead by Charis and Uli, at our local church on prayer mentors went well. Full house!  So blessed to watch the women talk and pray together.

The young lady in the middle is Sophie, the newest team member for this ministry -3 generations in the team is a wonderful way to naturally train trainers. 


1) Now that the boys are older I can do a bit more traveling. I’ll be flying may 19-29 to Toronto to visit two of my churches and family. 

2) New Inductive women’s Bible Study – 4 Tuesday evenings in May. Emma and I both have a passion for teaching women how to study God’s word for themselves. Please pray that God brings women to this study. It is so exciting diving into God’s Word. 

Also for a younger woman to join our team. (Yes, looking for three generations in this team too)

3) For Jonathan (19) and David (14) as they ‘man the fort’ and eat too many frozen pizzas, kebabs and the mandatory vegetables. 

Thank you for praying!!!!
