May 2020 Prayer Request
CONNECTED FAMILIES COACHING CERTIFICATION COHORT BEGINS
We are delighted to begin training members of the Connected Families community to become parent coaches! These coaches will be trained to use the Connected Families Framework to help guide parents in their sphere of influence. The cohort of 5 trainees begins at the end of May. Please pray that our group would bond quickly, the training materials would be effective, and our new trainees would be encouraged as they grow in their coaching skills.
DISCIPLINE THAT CONNECTS WITH YOUR CHILD’S HEART CHINESE TRANSLATION
With the help of several Chinese friends, our book, Discipline that Connects With Your Child’s Heart, has been translated into basic Mandarin Chinese! Please pray that this translation would provide much encouragement to a broad group of Chinese parents around the world.
LOOKING FOR TWO NEW BOARD MEMBERS
Connected Families is seeking two new board members to join us in 2020. Please pray that God would stir the hearts of the two people He would hand pick for us. We would love for these two people to have the skills to help guide us into the future. Please pray for a good and natural fit!
MANY FAMILIES ARE STRUGGLING
Families from all over the world have reached out to us to let us know they are struggling, but also finding our resources extremely valuable. Some are fearful of losing their jobs, others have significant health issues which put a family member at risk, and many are struggling with the chaos of home-bound kids who can’t get out all of their energy. Please pray that God would provide peace in the hearts of parents, kids, and families with a hope that only comes from Him. Pray that God’s purposes would be fulfilled for this trying time for so many.
500 FAMILIES EXPERIENCING TRANSFORMATION!
Over 500 families took us up on our offer to enroll in our Sibling Conflict online course in a “donate what you can” special offer, raising over $7000! Not only are families being transformed, but this additional revenue offset lost fees from canceled workshops. God is good!
ONGOING PRAYER REQUESTS:
For the health and wellness of all of our staff including our parent coaches (Lynne and Chad), our workshop speakers (Jim, Lynne, Chad, Stacy, and Anna) and our support team (April, Lanell, Jen, Sarah, Sharon, and Stacy).
For parents everywhere who are struggling to parent with God’s grace and truth.
For our ministry as a whole, that God would be glorified in all we do.
Share your prayer requests with us.
We would be honored to pray for you.
