God Brought Cacia Speckhard to WLI through a Chance Meeting


At Concordia University Wisconsin I was a busy student juggling a double major in Nursing and Missions, involved with many student organizations and a student leader in campus ministry. I loved every crazy minute learning and being surrounded by a group of people who were excited and passionate about living out the faith. And then after four years it was time for graduation and a real job in the healthcare world. I truly enjoy my career as a nurse, but suddenly I felt lost without my routine of classes, daily chapel and ever-evolving to do list of ministry tasks. Most of all, I missed the people. 

Looking back, I can definitely see God’s hand at work, but at the time it seemed random to run into Darcy (who I knew well from CUW’s campus ministry team and who is WLI’s Director) at a craft store. We caught up, talked about the joys and weirdness of transitions and Darcy mentioned getting involved in WLI. I had attended a WLI event while in school and recently attended another a few months ago. It was like a breath of fresh air! A group of wonderful women of faith from all walks of life who are life-long learners excited about leadership. I left that afternoon workshop feeling recharged and encouraged. Currently, I am on the planning committee helping to bring WLI’s National Conference to Milwaukee in the fall of 2017 and I am so incredibly excited to see what God has in-store for that weekend! WLI has been a blessing in my life and I hope it can be a blessing in yours as well.
