This weekend, I was trying to decide on a subject matter to post on Facebook today. I called Ginger at home and she quickly stated "adversity," and I balked. My feelings were that I should keep it light and uplifting -- possibly speaking on "being thankful" or "a simple act of kindness." I began reading Psalms and before I knew it, I had almost completed the entire book of Psalms. Later that evening, I called Ginger back and told her to read Psalm 71, especially verses 10-18 -- it speaks of adversity and how prayer can help one to overcome the effects of it.
As I pondered over "a simple act of kindness," the word "act" kept popping off the page at me. So, I turned my attention to the book of Acts, and I was mesmerized for hours. It tells us of the beginning of the dispensation of the Holy Spirit. We can see how the Apostles were filled with power so they could do what the Lord commanded them -- namely, preach the Gospel successfully to all nations. While reading of the beginning of missionary work, you find Paul and Barnabas being commissioned to spread the word of the Holy Spirit. Their travels take them throughout the Holy Land and eventually, they decide to separate and go back to their past destinations and see how the new believers were doing. During their separation, Paul is imprisoned more than once in different lands, but because of his strong faith and determination, he continued on, telling the Good News to all.
We can all take strength in these teachings from Paul and Barnabas, and hopefully continue their work in and through our own lives and the people we come in contact with daily. I know that I came back to work with a renewed sense of faith and reverence for the work being accomplished here at Wesley House -- come see us sometimes and let us show you what good things can be done if we just believe and let God take over. Even the bad things in life can be altered -- it just takes true faith and belief that He has control of it all.

There are six agencies at the Wesley House Community Center and one is Education. We believe that all parents and caregivers of children really need to stress the importance of school classwork and that certainly includes homework too. We believe that students sometimes need alittle extra attention when efforts are made to improve their learning, social, physical and emotional skills through education. The following list of applied behaviors are proven methods and techniques to use with students of all ages and represent our Wesley House beliefs. Remember --

Respect the child's values and beliefs.
Treat each child with respect and as a unique individual.
Encourage children to live by the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.
Teach children the harmful effects of illicit drug use, tobacco and alcohol.
Encourage children to face the realities of life by making sound healthy decisions.
Encourage children to explore a variety of problem-solving techniques as alternatives to antisocial behavior.
Exhibit love of the child's individual intellect, physical and emotional needs.
Provide a safe and supportive environment to learn and study.
Hold children accountable for study habits, manners, behavior, and respect for others.
Maintain high expectations for the child's achievement in and out of school.

Good Luck to all our community and neighborhood students and parents!
