A major reason why I love the EmpowerOKC program!
Great event, check it out!
I love the vision of Lilyfield, especially their measures in preventing the circumstances that lead to foster care. Don't forget to bring a bag of diapers by FCC Edmond before the end of the month!
May 28 at 10:45 AM · Our vision at Lilyfield includes 4 components:
1. Promote safety and stability for children
2. Equip, prepare and counsel birth, adoptive and foster families
3. Strive to prevent the circumstances that lead to foster care involvement
4. Guide children, youth and families on a path to healing and permanency
Partner with us to build healthy children and families by donating to our Lilyfield ONE Campaign.

So sobering. These stats need to change.
From my reading today in the conversations with Brother Lawrence, a monk in the 1600’s.
For the footnotes, 37 references Galatians 6:9, and 38 references the definition of care as a worry or heavy responsibility.
This is the goal of st|GL, to develop habits of foster charity and consideration through small acts of donating. We might struggle with the discipline at first, but overtime that will lead to exceeding delight, both for us and the families we’re impacting. So don’t grow weary!
