Bye Debbie

Deb Larson has been a fixture in North Dakota LWML service operations for years and she served on the National level as well.  Always smiling and usually happy she was a witness to God’s gracious activity in her life to those around her.  Debbie is moving away to parts unknown and we pray for her and her family.  She will be missed.  Here is a profile of her written before she was the North Dakota District LWML president.

Vice President of Organizational Resources Debbie Larson always seems to have a smile on her face. “As His forgiven child, I have a lot to be thankful for,” she says, “and I can’t help but smile!” Debbie enjoys LWML events because she says it’s like coming home. She feels welcomed, and like at any family gathering, she can just pitch in! Her sisters and brothers in Christ give her advice, encouragement, support and love. With another smile on her face she says, “I feel like I’m the one who benefits. I get much more out of it than I put in.”
Debbie’s vision for the LWML is that each woman desires to share Christ and be Christ to everyone she meets and that she is given the love and support to do just that.
Many people have mentored Debbie through the LWML: Past LWML Presidents Florence Montz and Kay Kreklau, Dottie Sincebaugh, Rev. Tim Jenks, every single woman in her own church group, and her mother-in-law Dolores Larson. In fact, as Debbie introduced her daughter-in-law to many LWML sisters at a past annual fall retreat, she realized she said each woman was her favorite person – and they were, all of them!
Debbie has held most offices on the local level of the LWML. On the district level she has served as the LWML North Dakota President, Convention Co-chairman, Vice President of Mission Grants, News Editor, and Recording Secretary. On the national level she has served on the Christian Life Committee and the Ablaze Task Force, and most recently as Public Relations Director. As she continues to serve God through the LWML she is most excited to encourage LCMS women to become involved in this incredible organization so they, too, can know the joy of Serving the Lord with Gladness!
Married 38 years and counting, Debbie and Scott have two married children and three very active grandsons. In her local church, she is a member of the bell choir, chairman of the board of education, director of the annual Living Last Supper drama, coordinator for the annual Chili Cookoff, and a member of the funeral committee.
Debbie has served on the local Lutheran school board of directors and she and Scott enjoy volunteering for before school care each week. In her spare time she loves to cook, watercolor, read, play Sudoku and spend time with her grandsons.
Many favorite Bible verses come to mind for Debbie, but she refers often to Proverbs 3:5-6, which says, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
