Today I lectured on Adverse Childhood Events (ACE) to a group of Foster Parents at Eastbrook Church. There was one common bond among these loving brothers and sisters. Their mission is to be awesome parents to children whose life started in a struggle.
God Bless these parents for their love, empathy and calling to care for these special children.
Deuteronomy 6:6-9 “And these words that I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorpost of your house and on your gates.”
James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to the change.”
Psalm 107: 19-21 “Then they cried to the Lord in their, and he saves them their distress. He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind.”
Below is the presentation for your reference brother and sisters.
God Bless you and your Children
