New (free) Video & Study Guide Print
Karyn Purvis, author of the wonderful book, The Connected Child has a new video series, on-line and free. On May 3rd, a study guide for The Connected Child will be released, again free of charge. From the new announcement:
As more and more people answer the call to adopt, it is important that we understand that the children that God will bring into our lives through adoption and foster care will likely have deep hurts and needs. Therefore, an important part of our call is to be prepared to be used by God to help these children heal and become whole. This is undoubtedly one of the greatest joys and privileges of adoption but we know it will not be easy.

The resources and tools offered by Empowered To Connect are designed to help those whom God is calling and has called to answer that call well to know what to expect, to be ready and prepared and, ultimately, to help bring long-term healing to their child. It is precisely this kind of 'love in action' that we believe reflects what it means to be called by God to adopt.

With this in mind, Empowered To Connect is excited to announce the Insights & Gifts Video Series. This new 16 video series (developed in partnership with the TCU Institute of Child Development ) offers seven insights and seven gifts that are highly relevant for those who are parenting or considering adopting or fostering children from hard places. Empowered To Connect is also developing a discussion guide for this video series, which will be available in May 2010.

We hope that you will watch this new series and be blessed by the insights and gifts Dr. Purvis offers.

Update on the Study Guide for The Connected Child

As you know we have been working for some time to complete the study guide for The Connected Child. We are excited to announce that this project is being finalized at this very moment. The study guide will be available for download free of charge on the Empowered To Connect website beginning Monday, May 3, 2010. This guide will help illuminate the biblical principles that serve as the foundation for the philosophy and the interventions detailed in The Connected Child.

Our prayer is that this resource will be another important tool for parents and others who are committed to helping children from hard places heal and fully experience the love of God.
Additionally, Dr. Karyn Purvis can be heard (again, free) on Adoption Learning Partners' webinar, "Parenting Children from Haiti and Other "Hard Places."
