In the new book, Children at Risk: The Precarious State of Children’s Well Being in America by Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, the facts and solutions are presented for the review and benefit of the entire world.
Dr. Crouse poured over hundreds of studies and compiled massive amounts of research that proves what we instinctively know to be true: that the practice of faith and a strong family are the two greatest indicators of success for all human beings. Dr. Crouse’s amazing book is must- reading for anyone who truly seeks to create a better world for children, and to make America happier, safer, and more productive. (Children at Risk is available at the website of Concerned Women for America, www.cwfa.org)
As we read and learn from the much-needed book, we must ask ourselves what we, as individuals, need to do if we have failed to practice faith or failed in our own marriage.
The greatest news that mankind has ever known is that redemption and restoration are possible. Christ makes “all things new” in our lives when we invite him to. He can turn even the most selfish and self-centered among us into “new creatures”. And he can heal the broken-hearted, dry the tears from our eyes, and provide us the opportunity to receive and practice forgiveness.
A broken society is created from shattered lives. As we pledge to rebuild our own lives through the practice of a strong faith in God and an undying commitment to our families, we will begin to rebuild our nation too.
