#HeartMtr Radio: Protect Your Child from Abuse

#HeartMtr Radio: Protect Your Child from Abuse

 

Every parent wants to protect their child from abuse, but in our declining culture that’s getting harder. Lisa Cherry and Cynthia talk about ways to keep your family free from the sexual predator. From personal experience, Lisa knows the dangers to avoid and the warning signs a parent might otherwise miss.

Lisa’s Bio:

Lisa Cherry and her husband, Doug, have a heart to see families make the spiritual baton pass to the next generation and fulfill the calling of God that is on their lives. For this reason, they founded Frontline Family Ministries Inc. in 1998. Together with all their 10 children and now son and daughter-in-law  and their growing numbers of descendants, they lead the various Frontline Ministries including Pastoring Victory Dream Center (pioneered in 1998), REALITY Youth Center, POTTS (Parents of Teens and Tweens), and Frontline Families Resources. Joyfully married for over 32 years, Doug and Lisa know what it is like to navigate a family through both smooth sailing waters and troubled dangerous storms. Their sensitivity, passion, and wisdom equip parents to launch strong Christ followers for the next generation. As they enjoy loud family dinner nights, toy-strewn messy living rooms, and traveling and speaking to churches, parents and teens, they have found their Frontline for Him.

Heart of the Matter: Help for the Laid Off

Heart of the Matter: Help for the Laid Off

As a single mom, Mary Kaarto got laid off from her job.

Her first layoff lasted from 1994-1996, and looking back it seems as if she lived and learned a lifetime of lessons during that period. Little did she know that she’d write and have a book published about helping others during their own layoff experiences.  But, that’s exactly what happened.Two weeks after she was laid off the second time (2002-2004), she was trying to save money by pruning my 30-yr old tree, by myself.  When you are a single mother and you’re without work, you do what you have to do! She lost my balance and fell off the top rung of her 16-foot ladder, ‘breaking myself’.  Her right leg was broken, she’d torn the meniscus in her right knee, injured her right elbow and arm.

She just couldn’t believe this was happening.  “God, WHY are You allowing me to go through this AGAIN? WHY did You allow me to lose a job I enjoyed, and then allow me to have this accident that leaves me housebound and howling at the moon in pain?” Really, she can’t describe how she was feeling, other than to say, confused. she wasn’t necessarily angry or sad, because she’d learned from the first layoff experience, that everything was going to be OK. She had peace this time but only because she knew if her daughter, Emilie and I got through the first layoff, that we could make it through another one.

Mary shares how she survived and tips she learned. Now she offers help to others who are laid off. Reach Mary at www.MaryKaarto.com
