Publication date: October 2007
Digital Book format: PDF (DRM-Free)
Holding hands, touching hearts and unlocking minds are seemingly a forgotten commodity in today's society, one that is in desperate need of an over-haul! This message is not only timely, but it also exemplifies life changing, scripturally based immediate solutions. It is indeed a time when the schools are depicted as the front runners of fear, disrespect, violence, drug and alcohol abuse as well as teenage pregnancies with an obvious absence of God's grace and mercy. In order to be successful in today's schools, we need to incorporate the old school concept: the families, churches, schools, and communities must come together in one accord with children's interest at heart. As the Bible says, But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:15) Unlike others, it does not subscribe to high personalities or gurus coming in with generic solutions, but it recognizes our most valuable assets: local school staff, churches, community and parent interaction, solid instruction, useful assessment, and revamped discipline. These strategies are presented with a step-by-step application without additional cost to the teacher, administrator, or county. This God propelled book is designed for all school levels, from kindergarten to college, employees of all ages, demographics, and genders as well as parents.
