thank you to all who have been praying! since writing, we have tried some different tactics that we haven't tried before. the Lord has been giving wisdom right and left and while my son isnt happy about it at the time, he has started thinking before acting out. when he does have to deal with the consequences, the Lord has opened up doors to talk about respect and how our family looks to God as our authority and He is the one who wants us to respect each other as much as we humanly can, that he wants him to obey his daddy and I. we have been able to talk about forgiveness and grace but that we need to choose to change our behavior and make good choices and rely on God to help us where we are falling short. He has found that he doesnt like some of the consequences to his actions and has been trying really hard to talk when he is angry instead of see red. so thank you again to all who have prayed and are continuing to pray!
Dept. of Vocational Rehabilitation has Approved me! Finally. Now they are able to help me find work and fill in the needs (training) where necessary. This has taken a long time.
