Women's Cycle of Life Invitation Reminder


When David and I saw this photo, we both said “Wow!” These are Maasai tribeswomen being introduced to the Women’s Cycle of Life training for the first time.

Can you imagine what a revolution is going on as they learn through a participatory and intentional learner-centered methodology (called LePSAS) about such topics as:

• Nutrition    • Anatomy and Physiology    • Conception and Fetal Growth
• Prenatal Care    • Childbirth    • Hygiene    • Newborn Care    • Child Spacing    • Sexually Transmitted Diseases

What is so amazing about this teaching methodology is that Scripture lessons are seamlessly integrated into the health lessons and they include such topics as:

•A Woman’s Worth From God’s Perspective    • Great Women of God
• Beauty and God’s Word    • Marriage: What Scripture Teaches About the Roles of Husband and Wife    • Forgiveness    • Mother-In-Law and Daughter-In-Law Relationships    • Abuse and Violence in the Family

I will be giving an introduction to the Women’s Cycle of Life teaching methodology in my home this Saturday, March 3. The morning event is at 10:00 a.m. and the afternoon event is at 2:00 p.m. Not wanting to publish my address on the Internet, if you will e-mail me at karen@hungrysouls.org, I will happily give that to you in return e-mail.

We will be serving outrageously delicious bran muffins and also hypoallergenic non-wheat muffins. I have room for 8 people in each session.

Sharon Abebe, pictured below on her motorcycle, is the Ethiopian trainer in that country. Last year she trained 40 women in two sessions, each a week long. The women were trained to train others. After six months, through verbal interviews, it was ascertained that the 40 women had given at least one lesson to 1680 other women (and in many places, due to the huge changes in their wives, many of their husbands also wanted to receive the Women’s Cycle of Life Training!).

I think this is a tool many of you will want to know about. We can even begin brainstorming how it can be applied in under-resourced communities here in the States!

Hope to see you this Saturday.
