For example, she said, "You can't take any more Brownies in a car than you have seat belts for. They've really improved it for the safety of the kids." She also mentions that for security reasons the camp location isn't / published. Mary Ellen is a member of the Pinevale Extension Homemakers and also en- joys bowling with the Presbyterian Women's I,eague of Stillwater. Gardening is another favorite activity. 'TVhen I worked, I gardened at night til late--now I can garden during the daylight," she said, with obvious satisfaction. "I don't know that I would make a career person," the busy mother said. I enjoy cake decorat- ing," Mary Ellen said. She decorated her first cake last summer for a sister's wedding. "I've entered cakes at the food fair--the food festival downtown Stillwater. Last year I did an angel food and got first place and best of class," she said proudly.

Reeder A Contracts and Grants Specialist at OSU, Lisa Thompson prefers the smaller community and school that Perkins offers over the Oklahoma City area where she once lived. An 11-year.old daughter, Brandi, was a deciding factor in her, choice. "I wanted to keep her in a relatively small rehool where she'd have enough attention educa- tion wise and athletic wise," the young mother said. As a part time stu- dent, Lisa is studying Business Education with a minor in Physical Education. Familiar with this area, having livei] near Carney on a family farm, and hav- ing been a student in the Perkins school system, Lisa has had no real dif- ficulty making Perkins her home. Her mother, Liz Beeson, is a Perkins resident, as well as a brother, Paul Price. At OSU since April of 1978, Lisa previously worked as a Senior Ac- counting Clerk.

David speaks of the Lord God. He tells the as the "health of my brethren, "Yet the Lord is countenance," and ques- faithful and He will tions reflectively, "Why strengthen you and set are you cast, down O my you on a firm foundation i(~ner self?" Isaiah directly ap- proaches the topic of fear, when he records the testimony of the unchang- ing God who calls and guides the destinies of the generations of the na- tions. "Fear not; there is nothing to fear for I am, with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God, I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties; yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My victorious right hand of rightness and justice." (Is. 41:10) The Apostle Paul could speak well of the victory attained through trust and releasing anxiety to and guard you from the evil one." (2 Thess. 3:3) Christ himself instructs us from the Sermon on the Mount, '"So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anx- ieties of its own. Suffi- cient," he said, '~or each day is its own trouble." The beloved Peter, who surely understood the real conquest of self will and the need of leaning into the Lord, speaks of a God who cares affectionately. '~asting the whole of your care--all your anx- ieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all--on Him; for He" cares for you affectionate- ly, and cares about you watchfully." (1 Peter 5:7) VERSE: 6 Do not fret or have any decorating. Then they were served at the "investiture--where you become a Brownie." Sharing extends into her family relationships as well, Mary Ellen says. "Working together, talk- ing things over, discuss- flag the situations instead of closing each other out--" are ways her fami- ly stays close knit and strong. A lot of changes in society have affected the family structure she feels. 'Too 're more wor- ried about where--most parents are more worried about where their kids are at and who they're with," she said. "Society isn't trusting. There's more violence. I think TV has something to do with it," she said. After watching the television series Adam, she says her children are more aware and no longer want to leave her side at department stores and anxiety about anything, restaurants. She sees the but in every circumstance solution to some of the and in everything by problems as better infer- mation, "informing the kids." prayer and petition, definite requests, with thanksgiving continue to make your wants known to God. 7 And God's peace be Combine chicken, beans, milk, soup and ~A can of the onions.

The finances in the "but it's important to me to have a purpose." She involves herself in civic activities particularly through her position on the parks and recreation board. Sincere in her assessment of the board's direction, she says, "We're making an effort to really improve the situation for kids in our town by providing bet- ter park and play ground equipment and some ac- tivities." Active as a little league girls coach for the pant three years, Lisa is help- ing coach this season. TO GET A BRANCH BANK SPERRY .

"And, they're look- ing at contaminated water in communities where their water is bad. "I~m pretty much an environmentalist. I believe we ought to do more preserving instead of tearing down."
