Women Anew 2021

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions Sawmill Creek will not be available for our event so we’ll be rescheduling for another time.

Dear Friends:
Greetings in this new year of 2021.  Prayers you are all doing well, being safe and continuing to trust our Lord’s purpose in all that is transpiring in your lives during these challenging and changing times. 

What a blessing is ours to know that no matter what transpires in our lives, our country, or our world, our Lord never changes, never is surprised, and promises to never leave us or forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5&6 nkj)

The staff continues to seek the Lord’s purpose for us this coming fall.  We were anticipating being able to share together how He has and is working in all our lives.  However, we just received word this past week that Sawmill will NOT be opening in 2021 for conferences.  That means our October 29-31 dates have been cancelled. We would not be honest if we didn’t say that we are truly disappointed.  However, Women Anew has always been for the Lord’s purpose and leading.

We have been truly thankful for those of you who have sent us financial help and we have been able to stay in the office.  We are seeking our Lord’s leading in all of this. We still have enough financial help from you that we will be in our office at least through the month of May which means we will keep our same phone number, email address, and web page. 

Now we covet your prayers.  If we are to meet together in the fall, we need another facility, We are concerned as to how many of you would want to meet in overnight accommodations or just a one day meeting with lunch included. This would eliminate those of you who travel from distant areas.  We have no way, at this time, to hold a virtual meeting.  We are concerned as to how many would be able to do so.

As we look to God’s purpose for our future we think of our Lord’s promises in Psalm 37:1-7. (nkj) We need not fret, but trust and delight as we commit and entrust our future, loved ones, homes, and jobs to Him.  Then we can rest assured that He is working for His good and purpose for us as His women. We will keep you informed.

If you want to be a part of an email blast, please send your email address to Ellen at eshel6736@aol.com.  Remember it’s eshel (not a 1).

A Letter to our Friends –


Dear Friends:
You are on our hearts and in our prayers as we enter this season of the year. It seems strange not to be finalizing all the details in our meeting together for what the Lord has for us at Women Anew in 2020.

We pray you are all well and we thank our Lord for His faithfulness and watch care over us during these months. The words of 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 is our prayer. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble……”.

Many of you have asked about doing a virtual meeting. We talked with our tech people and we have no access to the technology at this time.

We lift praise to our Lord and thanksgiving to those of you who have graciously sent a donation to Women Anew. This has enabled us to keep the office at least through November. Therefore our phone, web site, and address are still the same.

Please send us your prayer requests and concerns. We are not staffing the office, but are in one day a week. We love you and know that our Lord’s purpose for each of us has not changed. Remember…His grace is sufficient and His love never ending.

Blessings & Prayers,
Bev & Staff

If you have any special requests, you can send them to the Women Anew email address (womenanew@centurylink.net) in July and August. We lift praise and thanks to our Lord for all of you, your love, prayers, and commitment to this the Lord’s ministry. We wouldn’t have done this without His leading and your love. Our firm foundation is truly in His Son, Jesus.

Praising and Praying,
Your Women Anew Staff
