Brag Post: Our students are stinkin' amazing. They did excellent work in Regina where they used their skills to bind broken hearts and set free captives. I am proud of them for raising the money and setting aside the time in the middle of a rigorous program to go be the hands of Jesus. Inspiring work, guys!

S116 Marriage and Family: Canada

Beloved MFT Family:

Our students are headed back to Gentle Road Church of Christ in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada in just over a month to work with inner-city and First Nations families. We had a wonderful, impactful trip last year and are very much looking forward to this year's trip. Like last year, we will spend three days at a camp with youth doing workshops on trauma and then three days back in Regina working with the church and the community. Both our students and the community were positively impacted through this experience. We are so close to our fundraising goal. We only lack about a $2000. If you would like to contribute, please visit our donation page.

Thank you and I look forward to sharing with you all the report of this year's trip!

Abilene Christian University students both ignite and experience this change every year through missions and service, entering communities large and small to lovingly care for those in need and share the Good News.

Also proud of Carly Brack winning Student of the Year, Dr. Powell receiving the Distinguished Service Award, and Alex Carrasco and Sierra Rodriguez were elected to the TSAMFT board.

This is Billy Charles Nix. He was named after his fiercely independent maternal grandfather who drove from Kansas to Colorado when he was 12. "Charles" was chosen by his father, who wanted something a bit more refined. I learned this and more in Family Therapy II as we practiced collaborative therapy by being curious about one another's names. So what about the rest of you? What is the origin of your name?

What a great way to self-care! I have puppies and kittens on my Twitter feed. How do you use social media to destress and take a minute of joy for yourself?
