The idea of parenthood is typically filled with pleasantries such as throwing baseball for the first time, hearing first words, winning a trophy for the swim team, and helping with multiplication homework. Rarely do we want to consider the tragedies, and hardships that come along with the experience of life. However, there are moments in life when we are faced with navigating our way through situations that we never thought imaginable. Sometimes we question our calling as a parent, and hope that we do not find ourselves twenty years from now asking, “where did I go wrong.”
Consider were we would be if we had a community that supported us not only when life’s issues confronted us, but also worked with us to help us overcome difficult and tragic seasons of life. Some say that, “it takes a family to raise a family.” With this idea in mind, HopeCity Students offers Anchored, a mini-seminar based workshop once a month to stand in the gap for us when we aren’t sure how to deal with issues our students are experiencing. Anchored offers real life scenarios, taught by professionals, with the goal to help those who are non-professionals navigate through a student’s hardship, or tragedy. Stability in the family dynamic is our desire, and we hope to be a part of building a firm foundation for you and your family.
This month Dr. Ben Omungu will be guiding us through the topic of Perseverance. Parents are experiencing lots of challenges in their day to day lives such as stress from raising children, finances, time management, personal spiritual discipline and a host of other trials and testings in their lives. It is possible for Christians to endure and stand firm in their faith in the midst of attacks from both within and without.
