Donna Schlachter is the volunteer we are spotlighting this week. She has served the past four years as treasurer for HIS Writers. During this time she has taken on many duties outside of a traditional treasurer role in both her home chapter and the state organization. She was instrumental in seeing that all four of the ACFW Colorado retreats ran smoothly, going above and beyond what was expected as she served as registrar for most of them. Her wisdom, diligence, and organization ability has served to offer balance and the practical implementation of the many dreams and endeavors at both the local and state level.
Donna is a faithful prayer warrior who has stepped outside of her comfort zone to walk in courageous faith as God has revealed to her His plans. Because of her faith and wisdom, HIS Writers has been able to move forward in areas that felt far beyond their natural abilities and apparant resources. With the support of her fellow board member, Linda Abels, she stepped out to begin the HIS Writer’s critique group, which continues to grow and flourish. As she worked to meet the needs of the group she has implemented a positive system that not only offers critique, but mini-lessons on writing basics such as POV for its newer members. Donna’s sense of humor has often lighted heavy loads, and she has been willing to host board meetings in her home, feeding and loving on all of them. She is a friend to all, deeply committed to the Lord.
Thank you, Donna, for all your hard work.
