Building Healthy Families: Somebody has said there are only two kinds of people in the world. There are those who wake up in the morning and say, “Good morning, Lord!” and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, “Good Lord, it’s morning!” It is almost always true that “mood follows message”: how we feel emotionally results from what we tell ourselves about any given situation. The next time you are having a bad day, check your thoughts. Then replace negative, untrue self-statements with the truth. LFS counselors are available to help change negative patterns.

Life Quote: “When we care for orphans, through adoption and foster care, and through other kinds of ministries to orphans, when we advocate for children whose lives are in jeopardy through abortion and through other ways, what we are recognizing is that we are doing so as ex-orphans ourselves who have been rescued through the Gospel. And we are also recognizing that when a child is adopted into a family there is a real family formed there.” Dr. Russell D. Moore, author of “Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families” – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life · #2
