"Girls Gone Strong"
Published article about Domestic Violence/IPV
Late last year I was approached by the
advisory board of "Girls Gone Strong" to write an article about Domestic
Violence/Intimate Partner Abuse. This is a new community that I have
been introduced to and I believe in the work
they are doing. I want to
support them and those they reach so I accepted their request.
Please check out the GGS Facebook page or website and become a friend (if so moved) as I have.
Father's Day Message 2015 at First Plymouth Church, Lincoln, NE
Today is a day to rejoice! Specific days are designated as milestones (birthdays, anniversaries, mother's & father's day, etc.) and we praise those we are uplifting. However, not all who encounter these events experience happiness, some are immersed in sorrow. Lisa will share about celebrating your core while honoring those removed from the central celebration, and she will include thoughts that will aid in transitioning through the tough life events we survive.
