M.T.O.I. Ladies Ministry
Welcome to the M.T.O.I. Ladies Ministry page. We have lots of ideas and things that we want to do to help support the ladies of the M.T.O.I. family. We hope that you will join us and check back often to see what projects we are juggling and what resources we are developing just for you wonderful ladies!
We also developed the logo that you see to the left. We wanted to create something that coordinated with the general M.T.O.I. logo, but had its own personality and flair! You may recognize the lady in our logo from the M.T.O.I. logo - leading everyone else in a dance of praise and worship.
In her one hand she holds a book - but a book of what? And therein lies the beauty of this design. The book can be the Scriptures that guide her path each and every day; it could be a textbook she is using to teach her children at home; or a cookbook, just like ours, that helps her to provide tasty and nourishing meals for her family. Perhaps she is a woman with a career - instead of a book she could be perusing a medical chart, a legal file, or a handful of pages. The possibilities are as unique and varied as you!
In her other hand is a wooden spoon. Let's face it - food is something that we all have to eat and it seems our families expect it to be ready at least three times a day. And the Feasts of YHWH embrace celebrating with food. The spoon represents our ability to provide sustenance - whether physical, emotional, or spiritual - to our families, our friends, and other ladies just like us.
The feather duster hanging from her wrist shows her willingness to be a good stewardess, taking care of the things that YHWH has blessed her with. It also represents her heart of a servant - a heart characteristic that she develops personally and in her children, generation to generation.
Finally, we should all be "Embracing Our Roles with Joy". M.T.O.I. has a tagline that says, "Working together to serve the body..." and we ladies of M.T.O.I. take it a step further by embracing those roles that YHWH has put us into so that He may flow through us to serve others. And with Joy. Life is not always easy and our path is sometimes a bit tricky, yet we are responsible for creating the mood and outlook around us, so why not embrace all that we do with joy - a joy of YHWH.
Do you feel inspired? Excited to take up the challenge with us?
