Daughters Going Deeper – Information and Deadline

Daughters Going Deeper

DGD is an intentional program of spiritual formation that is available for Daughters of the King in good standing.

The program runs over two years with each month covering a different faith issue, a

number of which are specific to the Order. Each topic is paired with questions through

which a participant will explore her own spiritual life and carry out a project related to the

topic. Below is the preface to the curriculum which gives an overview of what is expected

of a participant in the program.

You will be beginning a two-year program of intentional spiritual formation. This program will

require a good deal of work on your part and is not to be undertaken lightly. You will have a

Curriculum to read and reflect on, questions each month to answer in writing and talk about with your mentor, you will have spiritual exercises to discuss with your spiritual director. You will

also be expected to read a certain number of books chosen from a provided bibliography. Your

mentor, your spiritual director, and the others who are going through this program with you, or

have already completed it, will be praying for you.

During these two years you should encounter God more deeply, become more discerning

concerning how God is acting in your life, and become ever more open to the Holy Spirit who

can, and will, mold you into what God has called you to become, another Christ. You will also

lay a foundation for continuing spiritual growth after you complete this program, perhaps with a

continuing relationship of spiritual support with your mentor, your spiritual director, and those

Daughters who have been your companions on this journey. So with faith that God will assist

you in your effort because God wants you to enjoy His love to the fullest, let us begin.

 

Applications are available from the Province VII website www.dokprov.7.com. Find the icon for DGD and down load the applications.  Our Deadline is AUGUST 31 for the 20017 class.

Please send you applications a letter of recommendation from a friend or instructor and a letter from your clergy to:

2016 Suggested Bylaws Changes

Please review the Suggested Bylaw changes so we may vote on them at Fall Assembly. Please send any questions or concerns to: Annette Matthews, V.P., DOK of the Diocese of Texas – acmmatt@msn.com

2016   2 Suggested Bylaws Revisions:

Number 1.  Present wording:

Article IV, Section 1: The President shall appoint Committee Chairs for Ministries including but not limited to the following:  Prayer, Service, Evangelism, Daughters-at-Large (DALs), Junior Daughters, Parliamentarian, Historian/Archivist, Communications and Soup Labels.  The President shall appoint other ad hoc committees as needed and designate the Chair of each.  See Article VIII.  The Glory Bound Singers Directress shall be appointed by the membership of that ministry.

Change to:

The President shall appoint Committee Chairs for Ministries including but not limited to the following:  Prayer, Service, Evangelism, Daughters-at-Large (DALs), Junior Daughters, Parliamentarian, Historian/Archivist and Communications.  The President shall appoint other ad hoc committees as needed and designate the Chair of each.  See Article VIII.  The Glory Bound Singers Directress shall be appointed by the membership of that ministry.

In order to delete “Soup Labels”.

Number 2.   Present wording:

Article VIII, Section 2.

  1. Article VIII, Section 2. I. Soup Labels Chair:  She shall administer the Soup Label Program and educate Daughters about it to encourage participation.
  1. Web Administrator: The Web Administrator shall maintain the DOK diocesan web site.  The Communications Chair may serve as Web Administrator.
  1. Ad Hoc Chairs: They shall be appointed to complete assignments or projects that further the aims of the Order for a term appropriate to the same.  Tenure of ad hoc chairs shall expire upon completion of the assignment or project and/or the delivery of a final report as instructed.

Change by deleting part I. and re-lettering the final 2 positions so the bylaws read:

  1. Ad Hoc Chairs: They shall be appointed to complete assignments or projects that further the aims of the Order for a term appropriate to the same.  Tenure of ad hoc chairs shall expire upon completion of the assignment or project and/or the delivery of a final report as instructed.

Labels for Education – Down Home Ranch

Labels for Education!

The Labels for Education program in winding down due to a decline in the need for the program.  We have until the end of August to bank our points for Down Home Ranch (http://www.downhomeranch.org/), So I am asking for your help in getting the word out to our Daughters so that I can get as many Labels banked and get with the folks at the ranch for items they would like.

They have many new homes and are building a new conference center, so I feel like we can put the Labels to good use.

My address to mail them to me is: Helen Paulsen, 25 Shady Rock Ct., Round Rock, Tx 78665  my phone is 512-569-1066.  For questions – Send Email
