Topics of discussion include: 1. Scriptural foundation for the gifts; 2. Purpose and Description of each of the seven gifts: Exhortation; Facilitation; Giving; Mercy; Prophecy; 3.

Human Trafficking Summit
West, VA
October 22, 2016

Yvonne will be speaking on Human Trafficking Prevention in America’s Schools and have a table to share the Anna’s Friends book series. Sophie Has a Secret is a book written for the 4th and 5th grade level that addresses sex abuse of children. It is written with light-hearted scenarios while revealing the truth about one of their classmates younger sister who experiences sex abuse, Sophie, who has been sexually abused by her father. The story is tastefully written for this age group. Yvonne brings in compassion to balance the trauma, humor to balance the drama, and laughter to balance the tears. Since 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 4 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18 and over 75% by people they know, this book is a must read for children in today’s world.

Homosassa Library – 4100 S Grandmarch Ave, Homosassa, FL
September 15th, 2016 6:00 PM

In this one hour forum you will learn why your children respond to life the way they do. You will learn why they get along with some children really well and others not so well, why some barely speak 10 sentences in a day and others are boisterous or flamboyant. Does your child like to emulate you and do what you do? Then he/she may be exhibiting traits that are common to the gift of service. Does your child have a strong tendency to make notes to him/herself and seem bossy—even rebellious—at times? They just might be the next community leader.
