Keep It Shut Starting September 9th.

From Bible times to modern times women have struggled with their words. What to say and how to say it. What not to say. When it is best to remain silent. And what to do when you’ve said something you wish you could now take back. In this book a woman whose mouth has gotten her into loads of trouble shares the hows (and how-not-tos) of dealing with the tongue.

Beyond just a “how not to gossip” book, this book explores what the Bible says about the many ways we are to use our words and the times when we are to remain silent. Karen will cover using our speech to interact with friends, co-workers, family, and strangers as well as in the many places we use our words in private, in public, online, and in prayer. Even the words we say silently to ourselves. She will address unsolicited opinion-slinging, speaking the truth in love, not saying words just to people-please, and dealing with our verbal anger.

Christian women struggle with their mouths. Even though we know that Scripture has much to say about how we are—and are not—to use our words, this is still an immense issue, causing heartache and strain not only in family relationships, but also in friendships, work, and church settings.

Jesus, the One and Only Starts September 9th.

He walked on earth two thousand years ago and changed the world for all time to come. Now comes a remarkable study on the most remarkable person to ever walk on this earth.

Come along with Beth Moore on a life-changing journey which will lead you through the hills of Galilee with the Teacher, across the lake with the Master, and finally, on the road toward the cross with the Savior. Get to know Jesus intimately ... as though you had walked with Him during His days of earthly ministry.

This 10-week, in-depth Bible study includes weekly personal assignments and 11 video sessions taped on location in Jerusalem and throughout Israel.

Dee Dee is a mother of three, two daughters in college and a son in high school. She teaches middle school Math and Bible at Heritage Christian School. She loves Jesus and can't wait to grow closer to Him through our next Beth Moore study, Jesus, the One and Only. Join her Wednesday, September 9th as the journey begins.

Positive Adoption Starting September 9th.

If you are thinking about adopting, this class is for you.

If you are fostering children, this class is for you.

If you have adopted children, this class is for you.

If you work with special needs children, this is for you.

If you have a special needs or a foster/adopted child and need some support and encouragement, this class is for you!

Positive Adoption meets on Wednesday evenings from 7pm-8:30 at Trinity Assembly of God. We are discussing The Connected Child and supplemental videos covering Trust Based Relational Intervention.

It is family based intervention that is designed for children who have experienced relationship based traumas.

This material is great for foster/adoptive parents, those seeking to adopt, teachers and professionals who work with children on a daily basis

Hi, I’m Kathleen.
I wish we could sit out on my back deck and have a cup of coffee. I’d tell you my story and you could tell me yours. I do not do well with surface chit chat, so I’d get down to the deep stuff right away. I’d tell you about my heart for orphans.
Almost thirty years ago, I married my soul mate, Jerry.
God planted a dream to one day adopt in both of our hearts. Fourteen years and three biological children later, the adoption dream sprouted into reality.
We traveled to Poland to adopt a sibling group. After spending five weeks in Poland, four of them living in the orphanage, we flew back to the United States. After a second trip the four new Guires came home.  We were suddenly a large family.
My feet hit the ground running every morning trying to keep up with everything and everyone.  I amassed a library full of material on hurt children, attachment issues, fetal alcohol syndrome, family and adoption. The children grew and so did I. See that posed photo at the top of the page?  Looks like we have it all together, doesn’t it?  What it really says is, by the grace of God, I lived it. I learned.  I am right there with you.  Adoption is a struggle.  Building a family is backbreaking, brick upon brick work. I love what Nehemiah says- 14 I looked [them over] and rose up and said to the nobles and officials and the other people, Do not be afraid of the enemy; [earnestly] remember the Lord and imprint Him [on your minds], great and terrible, and [take from Him courage to] fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes. Nehemiah 4:15  It’s a good work. A positive work. Let’s work on it together. Let’s grow our family tree.
