August 2021 Prayer Requests
NEW CF PARENT COACH
We are absolutely thrilled to have a new parent coach on staff at Connected Families. Lydia Rex went through the CF Coaching Certification Program and was certified as a CF parent coach in May. She will be focused on working with parents who have kids struggling with sensory issues. Please pray for a smooth transition for Lydia into coaching with us. Pray for just the right parents to come her way for her first coaching clients!
SENSITIVE AND INTENSE ONLINE COURSE PROGRESSING
Lynne continues to work on the Raising Your Sensitive and Intense Child online course. She is currently interviewing parents who have implemented a number of the strategies she outlines in the course. Please pray that she is able to obtain stories that encourage other parents. Stories that articulate the points she is trying to make and provide practical examples for parents to follow!
FALL COACHING COHORT SELECTED
We will have 13 coaches join us in October to go through the CF Parent Coaching Certification Program. That’s the most we’ve ever had and the most internationally represented group as well. Please pray that each of the participants would grow their skills and ability to communicate well the CF Framework. Pray for good and clear communication between the cohort members and for unity in the group!
WEBSITE BUILD PROJECT
August will be a significant month for us as we work hard on our new website (to be launched on October 11th). Please pray that all the technical things will go smoothly and that we’ll have clear decision-making and direction to make this the most user-friendly website possible.
- Our July 27 fundraising event for the Sensitive and Intense Child online course was an amazing success. We were hoping to raise $20,000 and exceeded that by a few hundred dolalrs. With the $10,000 matching grant a total of $30,410 was raised to continue to equip and encourage parents. Praise God!
- Discipline That Connects with Your Child’s Heart continues to be an encouragement to many Chinese-speaking parents. We recently received strong praise for the translated work and the impact on so many Chinese parents!
