I need your help! I don’t often use this vehicle for personal reasons, but today I am making an exception. I am making an exception because I believe it is of critical and urgent importance to our churches and to our children’s ministries. As you read the article below, you will learn about the wide path of devastation that divorce leaves in the lives of our children. You will read about the impact that this has on kids. I believe with all my heart that we, as the church, are called to fill the void left in a child’s life when their parents’ divorce. In order to do this better, I am currently conducting a short, confidential, online survey of people whose parents divorced before they reached the age of 18. You can find that survey (which asks 8 simple questions) at http://www.Kidmin1124.com/divorce/.
The goal of this survey is to help those of us who work with children to recognize the needs of children of divorce and serve them better. If you fall within the group targeted by the survey, please click on the link above and take 5 minutes or so to help us to positively impact kids who are currently going through the divorce of their parents. If you know of someone who fits the criteria, please forward the link to them as well. The more people we can get to fill out the survey, the better the results will be.
God has laid this issue heavily on my heart. As such, it is my intention to publish this article on Ministry-to-Children, Kidmin1124 and Dad in the Middle at roughly the same time. I apologize to those of you who will stumble across it more than once because of that, but my desire is to reach the largest audience possible in hopes that some in that audience will help me to spread the word. Thank you so much for your help. Now, on to the article!
