Thanks from all of us at Equipping Youth for blessing us with your attendance at our event last week. Your donations have encouraged us to maintain the passion and mission of serving our Iowa youth.
Your Donations are Vital!Â Â We have hired an Educator, Carolyn McCracken, to help with teaching in classrooms and to train teachers in the brain based methods of self discovery and discussion of our Powerful Choices Curriculumâ€™s lessons.Â Carolynâ€™s salary depends on additional monthly donations.
Dr Freda McKissic Bush, our speaker at the event last week emphasized that we need to help youth to learn to use their head before using their bodies to communicate love and affection. She warned of the threat of pornography and graphic illustrations in todayâ€™s sex education and media. She explained how the brain itself is molded by sexual behavior. Her Book, HOOKED, sold out at the event. This book gives the results of neuroscience research that shows what happens between your ears daily and how it affects your behavior.
May God bless you,Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â For the Staff and Board of Equipping Youth,Â Â Â Ruth Anne Eccles
At the Hotel Kirkwood Conference Center, 6:00 â€“ 8:30 PM
Dr. Bush has been in our community several times in the past for Equipping Youthâ€™s state wide trainings. Her lectures were appreciated by the attending medical and educational professionals and youth workers.Â Â Dr. Bush will challenge us at our banquet to provide Sexual Risk Avoidance Education for our youth of Iowa.
