Urban Servant: Hope, Healing and Growth as a Family....

Greetings Faithful Friends and Followers of Urban Servant.

First, I want you to know that you are precious to me. Each of you unique and special. Every reader a gift, a blessing and a special type of friend.  Accept that please - you are each beautiful and have your own special story.

Due to your faithful support, we passed 2,500 posts, 1.5 million hits (between the two platforms) and a lifetime of learning over the past 9 years.  Almost all of those posts are archived now due to the changes in our life- but they are available if needed.  Please feel free to ask if you are looking for something specific.  I will not be returning to blogging here in the foreseeable future but I am leaving Urban Servant live in case things shift.

Which brings us to today. We are thriving.  Healing from the trauma of recent years and learning a new pattern of life that embraces everything that is good without being controlled by legalistic rules or fear.  The promise of Psalm 30:5 "Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning, " has proven to be true for us.

Our joy has returned and brought huge change with it.  Part of the growth includes a new opportunity for me.   Over the past winter, I started working as the Parent Support Advocate for ATTACh  (The Association for Training on Trauma and Attachment in Children)  All the years of trauma, drama, and attachment work in my own home was the training ground for this particular job and I love speaking hope into hard places.

If you are interested in learning more about ATTACh, we have online parent support groups, an annual conference, a closed FB group and other resources available to help families in their healing journeys.  Feel free to contact me there or through this blog.

Blessings friends,
