How to Build Confidence in the Student with LDs

Great topic for back to school! Confidence for overcoming school challenges is a vital issue for the student who has some sort of learning problem. First, one must start with the right identity or self concept. Then one must say, enunciate positive confessions (both good self-talk and appropriate words in social context.) This is fundamental. Almost always, the process of diagnosis and the school situation gives the bright student the idea that he or she is stupid. From that perspective, they do not find the solutions for overcoming that they need. Faith, here, finds the grace available. The first — and last word — for helping the student with LD/learning problems.

Overcoming Trauma

Dr. Lendell Braud, PhD in Pyschology, shares with us her method for helping children and teens overcome trauma. This is exceptional because she had data, over decades, of this actually working with the majority of her clients.
It is open to all comers; does NOT require giving up the Christian faith, nor using any religious language. It is God who heals people. I think that what this does is help people listen for God’s healing words. See what you think. Take what works for you. It is God who heals and delivers and makes new. Evil masquerades and lies, but never offers a better life.

Here is Dr. Braud’s website:

For a seed of any amount, I will send you a digital copy of a picture like those of Dr. Braud’s participants. For a seed of over $100, I will send you a handmade, prophetic picture of like kind: a picture of transition to newness of life. This offer good only in 2020.

The Pattern of Salvation

We are living in momentous times. We can’t catch a slow newsday. Do you think there is just too much discussion on Facebook? Chuckle.
We have been rescued from things we did not know we needed rescue from. The virus was meant to be deadly, and was not. The handling of it was meant to close down our nation — forever. It won’t, but we will have to work hard to overturn the damage. Other nations are still in a fight for their very lives.

Then, before we were over the “pandemic”, we heard about the overturn of a treasonous plot to take down our duly elected president, where high officials, several top law enforcement professionals, top legislators, and the media all colluded. Lt. Gen. Flynn’s exoneration was only the tip of the iceberg; he was targeted because he was a good investigator and a straight arrow, so he was the first most important person for the criminals to take down. This is not a political broadcast, but such a momentous happening, now publicly known and not only suspected by the particularly well informed, can not be overlooked.

This does have ramifications for the little mother with a child whose problems fill her time. The wool covering eyes is being pulled off. The system was not set up to help you, not to heal your child, and not to educate your child. The rock of our salvation is Jesus alone. The rescue from slavery is in God alone. Fortunately, however, NOT in religion alone. Our hope in God matters in all of our life. God works in our lives and in all of society. But the Kingdom grows like a plant or a crop. It will help you if you understand the pattern of how God works.

Testimony of Salvation of a Young Person – from Drugs to Intimacy with Jesus

Shelby gave her testimony back in 2009, at about this time of year. I remembered it and so thought I would share it again.

It is important to think about young people. How is it that they are so overlooked?

I just heard (electronically) Kevin Zadai say that whatever you do to or for a child gets reported in heaven. Remember the verse that says that their angels always behold the face of the Father? Children have a direct line. Yet some terrible things happen to children. They wonder about this. We wonder about it when we are adults. The answer is that accounts will be settled in Heaven.

This is something we often forget: accounts are settled in heaven. Our society has been so thoroughly influenced by unbelief! However, such a position is not rational! For instance, Immanuel Kant argued compellingly for the necessity of a God who is the guarantor of justice. Charles Hartshorne and colleagues have argued compellingly for the logical necessity of the immortality of the human soul. So how is it that we swallow a completely irrational claim that any mortal human can KNOW that the supernatural or the after life does not exist — in face of both evidence and contrary logic? More than we know is spiritual warfare.

So by all means, let’s “war” on the side of the angels. Let’s consider our children. Then, after that, once we have graduated from having children in our home, let’s consider what we can do for children in general.
A small bit of charity would be nice. (BTW, I heard that Annabelle Wallnau, upon being faced with a single mom whose 7 year old had never slept in a bed, has established some outreach for single mothers. YEAH!) Some consideration how to do this wisely would help. (Government programs have increased the number and percentage of poor children and often insure generational poverty.) This means that we must LOVE the TRUTH — and thus work hard to seek it out (as opposed to be lead around and weaponized for causes that are really masks for pecuniary interests that hurt children. (Witness, for instance, the deception that the call for safety testing for vaccines by world-class researchers in face of overwhelming evidence of problems is really just low information people hurting society. Think, please just who it was that pickrf up a claim on social media and started harming others.)

“Low information” and other accusations often have a mirror nature. Notice the stories of Elijah, Ahab and Jezebel I Kings 18- II Kings 10 or so). Notice Naboth was falsely accused of once doing exactly what the source did all of the time. Notice that in this regime of inappropriate authority, there was also inappropriately mixed worship and inappropriate customs, such as self-cutting.

This podcast attempts to encourage parents and educators to have faith for the success of their children, particularly around learning disabilities. However, everything is connected to everything. Policy and prayer are even connected. Let’s consider the children and young people.

PS Tesimony is not intended to promote any particular church or ministry or Bible College. Ring’s experience was more than 10 years ago. Just promoting Jesus and faith and the cause of children/youth.
