Junior Auxiliary Members Hear From Bestselling Author Richard Paul Evans at Area Meeting-

Bottom Row: Amy Powell, Krystal Jerry, Laura Drew Holmes.
Row 2: Noel Howe, Christie Jarvis, Leann Grantham, Renee Wooten, Stephanie Stewart, Melanie Sprenkle, and Heather Crowson
Several Members from Junior Auxiliary attended the annual area meeting in Memphis on August 29.

“Living a life of service” and “avoiding and resolving conflict” were the main messages members of the Junior Auxiliary of Tipton County came away with from the area meeting of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries (NAJA) held recently in Memphis, TN.

Keynote speaker for the event was Richard Paul Evans who motivated JA attendees to be good volunteers and utilize 5 keys in making their efforts a success: Divine recognition, Forgiveness, Risk, Acceptance of Adversity and Love. Evans’ story of parental love and the true meaning of Christmas made history when his book became simultaneously the #1 hardcover and paperback book in the nation. Since then, more than eight million copies of The Christmas Box have been printed.

Darlene Carey spoke on how to make Chapter service, family life and interactions with people in general more productive and less stressful in a workshop entitled “Taking the CON out of Conflict”. Carey is co-founder and active managing partner of Inspirspectives, a business consulting and training firm where she directs her passion for personal change and growth to help people chase their dreams, ignite their passion and make things happen.

NAJA hosts area meetings across the Southeast each year to offer training and assistance to the organization's 101 Chapters. "The training events for our members and community leaders help strengthen Chapters and make them more of a dynamic organization in each of the community’s they serve,” said Christy Keirn, NAJA President. “This year one of our secondary topics of discussion was Conflict Resolution in which we provided tips to help our attendees both in their personal and volunteer life.”

Junior Auxiliary represents a serious endeavor on the part of women to be active and constructive community participants and to assume leadership roles in meeting community needs. The mission of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries is to provide support, resources, and educational, leadership, cultural, and health care training for NAJA members in order to optimize community service by NAJA Chapters. These educational meetings for members give them the resources to be better community volunteers.

The NAJA slogan is “Care Today – Character Tomorrow” and when teamed with the current focus of NAJA, “Healthy Children ~ Healthy Futures”, Junior Auxiliary Chapters all over the Mid-South are working to increase awareness of child health and welfare and how it affects the future of the child.
