About our Guest Speaker: Terri Seiter

“Jesus Wept.” John 11:3
TerriSeiter is a long time member of St. Joseph Parish in Conway. She taught at St. Joseph’s School for 2 years and served as principal of the Primary School from 2000-2008. She and her husband Mark have been active in many parish activities including the St. Joseph Bazaar, Cursillo, stewardship committee, building and grounds committee, Woman-to-Woman and Walking With Purpose.

They have 3 children…Adam, Amy and Kara who all attended St. Joseph School. They also have a son and daughter-in-law, Dru and Jessica, as well as 1 granddaughter, Lillian (with another granddaughter due in February!)

Terri has encountered life in many shapes and sizes and comes to share her message of hope and encouragement as we all deal with the realities of life.

Joyful, and upbeat are the words one would use to describe Terri. A fighter against all odds and a woman of faith and courage, she has learned to deal with loss, health issues, and pain, yet has continued to have faith in God and continues to run the race and press on in the kingdom.

Although one of the shortest verses in the Bible, Terri’s favorite verse is “Jesus wept“ John 11:35

HISTORY of Jesus Bread of Life  Chapter of Magnificat

[For the Diocese of Little Rock in Arkansas]

In 2011, while attending daily Mass the Lord spoke to my heart that it was time to bring a Magnificat Chapter to Central Arkansas.This inspiration came from a seed that was planted after attending our Mother Chapter, Mary Ark of the Covenant’s first meal many years earlier. As I prayed, the Lord gave me the names of the women whom he was calling to help start a new chapter. After calling the Central office and inquiring about the process, our group of women met and prayed and worked as we were guided by the Holy Spirit and the Central Service team. Through prayer, prayer and more prayer and discernment our chapter was named “Jesus Bread of Life”. We were dedicated, hardworking and a bit frightened at times as to how all of our prayers would play out but after about a year and a half, we held our first meal and had around 250 wonderful women attend. The original five service team members were: Founder Debbie Eckert Coordinator, Diane Bausom Co-Cordinator, Doris Williams Treasurer, Lib Harrison Historian, and Sarah Thornton, Secretary

Serving on the service team has stretched us and caused growth in many new and wonderful ways. The bonds the we share as sisters are beautiful, strong and uplifting.The joy we experience as we meet new women and help them experience the love of God is beyond human words but awesome, exciting, wonderful, and grateful would be a good start to state how we feel. The love and sisterhood doesn’t stop there! We have made friends from all over the world through this wonderful ministry we call Magnificat. We encourage you to be a part of all that Magnificat has to offer.
