    Ask a Foster Leader Call-In Show 5/19/2015

    in Motivation

    Please feel free to comment on this page with your experiences or thoughts, and please participate in the group discussion on http://www.facebook.com/events/1442361066063701/

    This is episode #4 of the Ask a Foster Leader Call-In Show. Ask a Foster Leader is an opportunity for anyone to ask a question about the foster youth experience and to get that question answered by Foster Leaders (those who have triumphed over the obstacles that are traditionally associated with foster care and have become an inspiration to others). Questions will be answered in the order they are received on this event page. If you would like to submit a question privately, please private message the Ask a Foster Leader facebook page or email danieltiblets@gmail.com. 

    If you are a former foster youth, you have two opportunities to contribute to this discussion. You may comment on the questions on this event page and/or you can join the panel for the live-call in show at 7PM (central) on Tuesday, April 28th, by calling (646) 652-2296. 

    The topics discussed on this panel will include:

    What advice would you have for an individual or organization who is currently (or thinking about) providing mental health services for the foster youth community?

    If you aged out of foster care, what would you say your greatest needs were? What where your biggest hurdles? If there was a program that would have taken you in and helped make a smoother transition, would you have participated and what would your expectations for the program be?

    When comments designed to motivate, like "Keep your head up" and "Try to stay strong," are not working, what are some ways to encourage/console a youth or young adult who is going through a difficult time?

    Deepertruth: Eucharistic Miracle of Fatima, Portugal, 1916

    in Religion

    The Angel of Peace Appears to the Shepherds of Fatima Three Times and Gives Them Communion

    The angel appeared three times to the shepherds of Fatima in order to prepare them for future apparitions of Our Lady and elevate them to a supernatural state with Holy Communion.

    During the third apparition the angel gave Lucy Holy Communion with a Host from which drops of Blood fell into the chalice. Francesco and Jacinta, not having yet made their First Holy Communion, were given the contents of the chalice. In this apparition the angel told them: “Eat and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, terribly outraged by the ingratitude of men. Offer reparation for their sakes and console your God”.

    First Apparition of the Angel

    “We began to see, in the distance, a light whiter than snow in the form of a young man, quite transparent, and as brilliant as crystal in the rays of the sun. As he came near we were able to see his features: a young man about 14 or 15 years old and very beautiful. We were surprised and quite taken aback. We did not say a word. He reached us and said: ‘Do not be afraid. I am the angel of peace. Pray with me.’ He knelt, bending his forehead to the ground. With a supernatural impulse we did the same, repeating the words we heard him say: ‘My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love You. Pray in this way.

    * A Mother's Prayer | Happy Mother's Day!*

    in Prayer

    Heavenly Father who art in heaven,

    Hallowed be your name...Thy Kingdom 

    come thy will be done on Earth as it is in

    Heaven...Give us this Day, Ou Daily Bread

    and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those

    who trespass against us.

    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from 

    evil. For thine is the Kingdom the Power and the Glory

    forever and ever. Amen.

    Beloved as we celebrate Mother's Day a Day set aside to

    Honor Mom's I would like to Pray you have a great and 

    enjoyable Mother's Day today. Know you are Special,

    Know you are Loved. And if this day finds you alone, my

    Prayer is the love of our Heavenly Father will console your

    heart. This morning Beloved I will be Sharing a few Mother's

    in the Word. Starting off with Hannah, who 1 Samuel 1:6 says,

    she was without child because the LORD had closed her womb.

    We'll look at her Faith that caused her to cry out to the LORD and

    He heard and Blessed her with a Son she vowed to give back to

    the LORD. And she did. We will take a glimpse at Jesus's Mother Mary

    and her cousin Elisabeth and their stories coincide in Luke Chapter 1.

    We will discover the joy of Motherhood from a Biblical Perspective and 

    not as the world sometimes view Motherhood. Children are an Heritage

    a Blessing from the LORD God Almighty and nothing or no one should

    cause us to feel less than as a Mom, because in Our Heavenly Father's 

    eyes...We as Mother's are Blessed. Proverbs 31:26-31 Beloved it 

    is my Sincere Prayer that if you are a Single Mom, on this Mother's Day...

    know Beloved that I Love You and I am Praying 

    for you. Know Beloved Jesus knows your Name and He Knows the names

    of your Children or Child. In Jesus's Name. Amen.

    Jeremiah Chapter 16 King James Version

    The Lord says to Jeremiah a very strong warning even to him,telling him  do not marry or take a wife or have children, when my judgment comes they will all die by the sword, famine. No one will be there to give comforth to them, their bodies will lie  in the land with no one to even bury them, or to console the wounded. God's anger is kindled by the Jews and them doing the same things their forefather did,and he has had enough of the idol worship, and other false God's, lieing, cheating etc. Now Judgment is coming, but restoration is imitated.

     1 Peter 1: 23 You have been born anew,not from perishable seed, but from inpershiable seed, throught the living and abiding Word of God.

    Connection Point With Bishop Deb - Being a Force for Peace

    in Spirituality

    Are you feeling run off your feet and stressed? How can we find peace in a world that has so much fear and challenges?

    Join Bishop Deb for the third part of a series on Finding Peace using the Prayer of St Francis as the focus.

    The Peace Prayer of Saint Francis

    Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
    Where there is error, truth;
    Where there is injury, pardon;
    Where there is doubt, faith;
    Where there is despair, hope;
    Where there is darkness, light;
    And where there is sadness, joy.
    O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
    To be consoled as to console;
    To be understood as to understand;
    To be loved as to love.
    For it is in giving that we receive;
    It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
    It is in self-forgetting that we find;
    And it is in dying to ourselves that we are born to eternal life.
