Building Healthy Families – October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Pay attention to signs of domestic violence among your friends, be they young, old or middle age. Signs include bruises, isolation, and having to ask permission to do things or go places. Also know that women are at greatest risk of being killed by their violent partner when they file for divorce, obtain a protection order or take other steps to end the relationship. If you know someone in a dangerous relationship please let them know you care, help them make an appointment with an LFS counselor and give them the number of the Iowa Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-942-0333).     Lutheran Family Services

Stewardship Corner - Whether God gives us much or little, we, as God’s stewards, have the same responsibilities: to receive gratefully, to manage faithfully, to share generously.  Big or little, large or small, it doesn’t make much difference.  God doesn’t want us to get hung on the size of what we have but rather on the faithfulness of what we do with what we have.  God wants us to be faithful with whatever He entrusts to us.  We will all have to give an account to God regardless of size (Romans 14:12).
