Day 29 of 99 days to FASDay

The information for today’s tip came from an Employment Review (April 2016) from the Canada FASD Research Network, in partnership with the Lakeland Centre for FASD Alberta Human Services. Although the information in this report is specific to employment, it follows our focus on the positive by offering solutions.

The purpose of this report was to identify current employment programs and model frameworks that are currently used to support adults with FASD.

In addition, organizations across the country that provide employment support for clients with FASD provided insight into the types of approaches and models that are currently employed, as well as the successes and challenges these programs experience.

Taken together, the information presented in this report can be used to inform future employment initiatives for clients with FASD.

Check back to tomorrow when we conclude our “positive” focus for now and then move on to another subject area for FASD.

7 things I just learned about FASD

our sacred breath

Last week I finished a seven week webinar presented by an organization called Families Affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder or FAFASD.

The webinar was for families and caregivers of people affected by FASD. I have taken many courses, read numerous books, and talked with others but believe I can always learn something new. It is good to keep on top of the latest developments and research. The opportunity to connect with others who are facing the same challenges, stresses and successes is also a wonderful thing.

While some of this I may have had an idea about, much of it was brand new information I have not heard in my eight year experience of parenting a child with FASD. So here is my list of 7 things I didn’t know before that I know now:

1. A brain damaged by alcohol continues to develop until age 30.

Parenting by Choice, Rather than Circumstance

Thanks Craig always love when you write a new blog – Keep them coming

ADOPTING FAITH: A Father's Unconditional Love

April’s turning out to be one long month at my house! One surprise after another – and not the pleasant variety. Frustrated? Of course, I am – like most parents in the trenches would be.  

But am letting the chaos get the best of me? Or have I looked within myself – perceiving the taxing situations through a different lens? 

First came the storm. Although the wind uprooted a large tree in my backyard, I am thankful. It crushed the birdbath but didn’t land on the house. No serious damage. And when I asked for help with the clean-up, one of my sons quickly volunteered. Now we have firewood for years.  

squirrelNext was the pregnant squirrel. It conveniently built a nest in the engine of my seldom-driven Jeep. While the babies were precious, the chewed wires were not. The vehicle wouldn’t start. But I am thankful once again…

New Nephros Ministry Website Launching August 15, 2015

We are excited to launch our new website. Nephros Ministries follows the path of Jesus Ministry. Jesus was all about healing while he walked upon the earth. When He died he ascended into Heaven, the Holy Spirit was powerfully unleashed to continue His work of saving, healing and delivering.

“Sozo” is a Greek word meaning to save, heal, and deliver, and it is found over 100 time in the New Testament. Accessing Jesus’ power has, and always will transform us. Sozo helps connect a person to the radical healing power of God.

SOZO means “Salvation”

There is salvation (SOZO) in no one else! There is no other name in all of heaven for people to call on to save (SOZO) them. Acts 4:12

SOZO means “Healing”

Jesus turned around and said to her, “Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well (SOZO).” And the woman was healed (SOZO) at that moment. Matthew 9:22

SOZO means “Deliverance”

Yes, and the Lord will deliver (SOZO) me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly Kingdom. 2 Timothy 4:18
