Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Raising Kids for TRUE Greatness

Before I left for the airport, I grabbed a book that I had been wanting to read, but hadn't had time.
I bought it over a year ago, and FINALLY got to read it.  I must say, it was a breath of fresh air in many ways.

I like to read books, but I don't always agree with EVERYTHING in each book I read, and that includes this one.  HOWEVER, It is a DEFINITE worth read!

The book is titled "Raising Kids for True Greatness" by Tim Kimmel. 
The reason I love it so much, is that he has proper perspective on what is truly important, and what TRUE greatness is! 

This book is not focused on Trauma, or adoption. It is focused on something that will be an answer to many trauma issues.  FORGIVENESS, LOVE, ACCEPTANCE, GUIDANCE, TRUST....etc.

Try it, you'll LIKE it.... and it will take a lot of pressure off of those who feel that they cannot "compete".

Tim Kimmel is GREAT! He spoke at our church, Woodcreek Church in Richardson, TX when we were there. I got a chance to talk with him and told him his book(s) were some of the few I had found to be compatible with Heather Forbes' books.

Glad you had a great read for the flight home.
