Welcome to IWN’s Secret Sister program! This is a fun way to get to know more about fellow members – and to form a connection with someone you may not know so well at this point. Secret sisters get to give little uplifting moments to each other and in return they get the same.
Camaraderie sparks, connections blossom, and friendships flourish!
Won’t you join us?
Please complete the secret sister information form and turn in to Sloan Johnston or any other IWN Board Member no later than February 1st.
You will be notified via e-mail the name of your secret sister and provided a copy of her profile information sheet.
Sister Sister guidelines and responsibilities:
Keep it a secret!
Don’t let anyone know whom you have. You can either mail (with IWN as the return address) or bring them to luncheon for easy delivery. Sloan will be available to deliver your cards/notes/gifts to your “Secret Sister” each month.
This is a commitment.
Your sister is relying on you to uphold her in your prayers and for encouragement.
Make an effort to get to know your sister.
Discover the likes and dislikes of your sister. Know her favorites. Find out all about her.
Pray for your sister.
Get to know her needs and her family’s needs so that you may pray specifically for them
Be an encouragement.
Send her cards or notes of encouragement – at least once a month.
Remember your sister on her special occasions.
Don’t forget to send cards for her birthday and anniversary or special landmarks in your sister’s life.
If you choose to give purchased gifts, please keep it under $5. Food gifts, candy, and homemade goodies are great ideas. All gifts and cards can be given to Sloan Johnston at the beginning of any IWN monthly luncheon for ease of delivery.
If midway through the year, you find that you are unable to continue, contact Sloan Johnston or Monica Ellington. We want all the ladies that participate, to participate through the November Reveal Party. However, if along the way you are unable to continue, please let us know so that your “Secret Sister” can be reassigned.
If you are a new IWN member and would like to participate in Secret Sisters mid-year, please let Sloan Johnston know at your earliest convenience. She will be keeping a wait-list of members awaiting new participants eager to connect with a Secret Sister.
Our Secret Sister ‘Reveal’ Party will be November 6th with additional details forthcoming. Please bring a final gift for your secret sister.
Above all, have fun and enjoy getting to know your sisters! You can be the instrument that God has placed in her life to provide the encouragement she needs right when it’s needed. Praying daily for your sister will strengthen YOU and HER, and the rewards can be immeasurable.
