March 2020 Prayer Requests
DISCIPLINE THAT CONNECTS ONLINE COURSE IS FINISHING
Our winter iteration of the Discipline that Connects online course will be wrapping up this month. Please pray that parents would commit to finishing the course and would begin implementing the changes they have learned. Pray for strong connections with their kids!
A NEW ONLINE COURSE IS COMING
Stacy Bellward and Chad Hayenga are putting the final touches on a new online course entitled, Less Arguing. More Wisdom. The Power of Questions for Parents. Please pray that the final edits would go smoothly and all the production details would come together! Pray that it would indeed help parents build wisdom in their kids!
FAMILY IN NEED OF PRAYER
A mom reached out to us at a parenting workshop and asked that we would pray for a strong connection with her 9 year old autistic son who becomes violent when upset. She was in tears, feeling like she was failing him but not sure what to do. Please pray that God would meet her in her struggle and bring peace to her heart and mind. Pray that the many therapies and tools her son has been given would begin to make sense to him. Pray that he would have peace in his heart and mind!
OPPORTUNITIES TO WORK WITH SCHOOLS
Over the last year we’ve had a number of Christian schools reach out to us to see if we could help them implement the Connected Families Framework throughout their entire system. The objective is to have administration, teachers, counselors and parents all operating under the same framework! Please pray that God would grant us wisdom as we step into an area we’ve not yet partnered to this degree. Please pray that we would discern, along with the schools, what He wants to do to impact families!
Jim and Lynne recorded another series of podcasts recently! Thanks so much for praying with us about that!
