[Support our Advertisers!] Contributions from our Members:   Divorce and the Call to Ministry ... I was asked by group leader in my Bible study if I'd consider a leadership position. I prayed and felt it was a good thing, my dh and kids supported me and I let them know I could do it. I was then interviewed for the position. It started out great. I shared my testimony of coming to know Christ as Lord and was just so enthusiastic. Then, the bomb came...I had been divorced years ago. This eliminated me from leading a group of women...With this plea for wisdom a great discussion was born! The divorced and ministry, are the two compatable? [Support our Advertisers!]

(sorry, I don't know how to do the tiny url thingy)

This article is very interesting and encouraging. It starts out talking about 2 examples of feminism that television has given us - June Cleaver and Clair Huxtable, and how we only see a tiny bit of what a woman's role should/could be. The author points out how both of them are influenced by the time - June was influenced by the 1950's ideal mother, Clair by the 1980's super-woman. Contrasted with this is the Biblical mother in Proverbs 31.

Good reading, and encouraging for young moms who are struggling (and probably have little to no idea who Clair and June are! Laughing Laughing Laughing )

I won't go into all of the detals, but my sister and her family have been through the wringer in the past fifteen years or so. There's been a constant barrage of financial issues, major health issues (both her and her dh), employment issues, issues with their dc, etc., etc., etc. They are being hit really, really hard again right now and just feel at a loss. They are both strong Christians and know that God is on their side, but the walls just seem to be caving in on them. I am praying for them... but am coming up short on finding words of comfort since most of them seem empty in light of what they've been through. Sad


I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. ~Phil 3:13-14~

Just a note: our son's best friend was pretty much like this as an early to late teen.

It turned out, in the end, he told us that although he claimed to be a Christian and actually had been kind of a early walker/perfect toddler/a very easy child to parent, etc....that he actually did not know Jesus as his personal Savior.

I am not saying that all kids who are not affected by loss of privileges are like this, just that they really can be strong-willed and/or passively to outwardly disobedient.

This kid actually left his home because of conflict with his parents (over an unsaved girl) and lived pillar to post as a college-aged student. Eventually, he went into the military, was taken under the wing of a Christian commander and actually came to know the Lord for real. His life has changed. He is married, has children, works, is involved in a church as a youth pastor.

I think that part of what hamstrung his parents in dealing with it when he was a teen was believing him when he said that he knew the Lord and not actually believing the pattern of his behavior which was SHOWING that he did not know the Lord, when he was SAYING that he did.

To follow up on a comment in Just curious...this kid was: only passively disobedient until he transitioned to being actively disobedient. Punishment or loss of privileges did not phase (sp?) him in that middle time at all. He was not even embarrassed when they caught him lying about where he was, using another church family for cover, once he could drive.

I am not saying that all kids are the same...just that he was pretty good at masquerading and blending in. And I think there may be more kids like that out there somewhere...

Praying for all of our kids today.

Does your church have a mentoring program developed within your church as part of the "official" ladies ministry?

How does that look?

Have you developed guidelines for those who participate?

How do you assign mentors with mentees?

While going to college is, itself, a debatable subject...I noticed this book: _How to Stay a Christian in College_, by J. Budziszewski (don't ask me how to pronounce it <wry smile>) published by TH1NK, PO Box 35001, Colorado Springs, CO 80935, imprint of NavPress, ISBN 1 57683 510 3

It is written to help a Christian kid going to college. I, however, think that it would help any thinking teen, as well -- whether they were homeschooled and are now in public school (like our son) or just a thinker or dually enrolled or have unsaved friends, family or teachers.

It views the various 'arguments' that can derail a kid and helps them to think it through Biblically and logically.

For example: "Like every naturalist, (Richard) Lewontin (Harvard paleontologist) believes that the material world of nature is all there is, but he also confesses to something many of his fellow naturalists would rather deny. The confession is that they all belive in naturalism *in spite of* the evidence, not because of it. For example, even though the evidence strongly suggests that living things are the result of intelligent design, naturalists are desperate to prove they can't be. Most of us would call the urge to ignore evidence 'prejudice'. Strangely, Lewontin calls it 'taking the side of science'! See for yourself:

'We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs,...in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counterintuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door." 5 ("Billions and Billions of Demons", The New York Review of Books, January 9, 1997, pp 28-32)

Here's a site to help you fill out the FAFSA. My neighbor works in admissions in a college and she says there's a place somewhere online where you fill in the info ahead of time and they *estimate* how much you will be required to pay toward college -- then you can work on grants and scholarships.

It looks like you can take them via the distance learning application, while the student is still in high school, for example. Or full-time, via the degree application.

Here's an interesting looking website to help with calculating financial costs of college. I think you can use Peterson's searchable databases and interactive tools to find colleges, universities, graduate programs, look for scholarships and grants and take practice exams for SAT and ACT.
