Cleft of the Rock Foundation, Inc.
July 2020 Newsletter
We are celebrating all the people and parents who intentionally raise their children to have respect and regard for people no matter their skin color. Parents have the opportunity and responsibility to teach young people to value themselves and one another, as well as stand up for what they believe in. It's a time for self reflection. Look at yourself and analyze what biases and prejudices you carry and find ways to educate yourself and be better. We must seek ways to indoctrinate LOVE! Together we are better!
The ‘One Race’ t-shirt was created to promote peace, inclusivity, and equality during this time of such division. Changes need to be made in this country and in our world. We all bleed the same color & are all apart of one race — the human race. Let’s work together and continue fighting. Shirts are $20 and proceeds go to Cleft of the Rock Foundation, Inc.

Wisdom is defined as the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight. "Voices of the Village" is utilized to showcase wisdom from wise and wonderful parents.

God will never put more on you than you can handle. Trust in him and he will lead you. -Helen Godwin

For Alisa Maria Carter the day couldn't be any crazier as she experiences mishaps throughout the day that have this 4th grader looking for something to get her through it. Alisa finds her inspiration in a place one would least expect, only to discover that others share in her inspiration too.

9-Week Parenting on Purpose Video Series by Dr. Bob Barnes
  We all know that children don’t come with instruction manuals, and with today’s barrage of seemingly opposing information and uncharted societal issues, parenting can seem overwhelming. The 9-week Parenting on Purpose Video Series seeks to help parents make sense of all the information, through proven and practical parenting solutions created by Dr. Bob Barnes. Dr. Barnes has a doctorate in counseling and received his education at Maryville College and Florida Atlantic University and he presents seminars and conferences on Parenting and Marriage throughout North America.
