 MENTOR-You Sow They Grow!

 

“You will be so enriched when you sow into the life of others.” ~~YoTrip

 

Do you have a few hours a week to spend with a young person? Mentoring and the difference it makes in the life of a child is highlighted each January for National Mentoring Month. When you sow into the life of a child through mentoring you open the door to opportunities and possibilities for the child.

 

Mentoring can do the following:

 

  • Help guide a child in their growth and development
  • Help a child with education and career goal
  • Help the child fill in the gaps in life

Created in 2002 by the Harvard School of Public Health and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, National Mentoring Month focuses national attention on the need for mentors, as well as how each of us—individuals, businesses, government agencies, schools, faith communities and nonprofits—can work together to increase the number of mentors to assure brighter futures for our young people. http://www.nationalmentoringmonth.org/

 

 

As a long time mentor, I have learned that children just want to be encouraged. When you give of your talent, your time and your treasures to a child you will see the impact of your involvement in their lives. A child that is connected with a mentor has another level of support.

 

For the last eight years I have had the pleasure of working with an emerging non-profit in Central Florida, Tomorrow Investments Matter (T.I.M. Works). The core mission of  T.I.M. Works is to help young ladies gain an increased self-awareness, learn to develop healthy relationships, understand their self-worth, gain financial savvy skills, and develop leadership skills. To learn more about about T.I.M. Works go to http://www.apinkypromise.net/ 

 

Let me challenge you to get involved and become a mentor.  The seeds you sow in a child, will be the foundation for growth in a child. Make the difference by being the difference in the life of a child.

 

~~YoTrip

 

Pause and pray for the families and friends of those who died tragically at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

For A King Celebrate

 

The world was given a gift 84 years ago when Rev. Martin Luther King Sr. and Alberta Williams King gave birth to Martin Luther King, Jr.  The life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr is recognized by men and women, young and old, people of every creed and color. Dr. King was an advocate for justice, equality, and peace for all mankind. Below are some little known facts about Dr. King:

 

10. Martin Luther King, Jr. day was not recognized as a paid national holiday by all 50 states until 2000. (TIME)

 

9. The U2 song, “Pride (In The Name of Love)” was written about Martin Luther King, Jr. (Post Chronicle)

 

8. He went to Morehouse College at the age of just 15. (BBC)

 

7. He is the youngest man to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, at the age of 35. (Nobel)

 

6. He saved the original series of Star Trek by encouraging Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura, to stay on the show. (National Post)

 

5. Martin Luther King, Jr. died aged 39. He himself predicted he would not live to 40. (BBC)

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for 1/8/13-January is Thyroid Awareness Month (Vol.1, Iss.2)

Understanding the Thyroid

January is Thyroid Awareness month. The thyroid is a body part that is small in size but large in its functionality. As a center for how the body operates, the thyroid has the ability to work normally or it can be under active (Hypothyroidism) or overactive (Hyperthyroidism). All month-long there will be post that encourage, educate, enlighten and empower the readers regarding the thyroid.

The thyroid gland is an important endocrine gland that controls the body’s metabolism. It is a small butterfly shaped gland located in the front of the neck just below the Adam’s apple. The thyroid gland produces the hormones tetraiodothyronine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).

Together these hormones regulate how your cells use energy. The pathways by which cells use energy is called metabolism. Your body’s general metabolism determines blood pressure, heart rate, and weight.

Hypothyroidism is a condition where your thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone. Low levels of thyroid hormone interfere with the body’s ability to perform normal metabolic functions such as efficient use of energy from food products, regulation of many chemical reactions in the body, and maintenance of healthy cells, bones and muscles, to name a few..

There is no known prevention for hypothyroidism, nor is there a cure. Once you have it, you have it for life. http://bit.ly/UIJR2z

This a learning space, come and grow with us!

Pause and pray for the families and friends of those who died tragically at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
