World’s Greatest Jobs

Foster Parent and Substitute Teacher:  World’s Greatest Jobs, a book by Lois Simmons.  It  reveals truth about managing kids with difficult behaviors.  Each job can add supplemental income for a family.  They can certainly help needy kids.  Hence, this book is a tool to recruit great foster parents.  While today, many Americans have abandoned the words of the Creator.   People have become explicit, complicit and negligent in abusively mistreating families and children.  Where’s the outrage?

While serving the Creator as a trained therapeutic foster parent, you learn a lot about the results of family separations and the emotional trauma inflicted on children.   It’s very difficult to get close to these children.  It takes a deep connection and dependency on the Creator to receive the love, patience and understanding necessary to function as a good therapeutic foster parent.  Without these qualities you could further damage an already traumatized child.  You must have a strong spiritual life to be able to look beyond faults and discover the needs within and proceed to act out of loving-kindness and tender mercy to fulfill those needs.

This book will help you make an informed decision.  Get your copy today from http://www.amazon.com or http://www.LuLu.com.

Proceeds from sales will be used to help fund The P.O.O.R. Project and establish a Village Parent Support Group.  Visit Community Families United Network at www.MyCfun.org.  Get more information at the following link:https://youtu.be/WSB9o_WHZU0

Youth Culture Change

Youth Culture Change is Overdue

There needs to be a youth culture change in the nation today.  Things change from generation to generation.  Relationships between parents and children have certainly changed.  It is most noteworthy that there is less involvement between parents and youth today.  As a result, it seems to be the “norm” when unsupervised youth are dying untimely deaths through violence.

Should We Be Complicit, Neutral or Negligent? 

The answer is “none of the above”.  Parents must discipline, train and engage with their children.  That’s a parent’s responsibility and not that of others or city officials.  So, it’s on the parent to begin the training process at home.

We Must Be Proactive in Prevention

Parents must build a trusting  relationship with their children.  They should know where and with whom their kids hang out.  When parents give their authority over to their child, they lose the respect of the child.  Young people made to attend church while growing up learn biblical principles that help them resolve problems.  Those who don’t attend church consequently have fewer role models to pattern their lives.  As a result, we live among a generation of youth who know nothing about the love of God or how to love one another.  As a result, we are surrounded by kids with serious behavior problems, disrespectful and defiant to parents and others.  Furthermore innocent youth get caught up in the midst of violent behavior.

Church Involvement

There are many societal ills today.  True Believers should go after souls, whether young or old and equip them for life and its ending.  Parents shouldn’t wait on the church to “build loving villages” for youth.  A paradigm shift in youth culture starting in the church will be a gift to parents and youth.  Most parents would welcome help coming from a trusted place.  Ordinary Christians can start creating an atmosphere where children can learn about God and life.  We all have a part in making the world a better and safer place for all, especially our children.

Home Engagement

The change should start at relationship building at home.  Above all, parents are the best and first teachers.  Children are bright and resilient.  They know how to multitask and get things done.  Parents should encourage them to work and earn their own money at an early age.  There are opportunities they can take advantage of that will teach them good ethics and produce good character in youth.  Parents should search for opportunities for children and encourage them in their efforts.

IBeWorking4Me Club

IBeWorking4Me CLUB Work Booklet

The IBeWorking4Me Club work booklet will help when deciding prices on jobs.  The booklet will allow you to barter with employers.  Working Bees seemingly will earn money rather easily by being willing to serve others. 

Hence, many elderly people are unable to accomplish difficult tasks, they would gladly pay someone to help out. 

As a result of this opportunity, you will earn enough money to purchase another booklet. Therefore, you will have even more money to spend or save.

First of all, Bees will need to purchase a work booklet from www.MyCfun.org with parent’s permission and help.  Click on “Donate” button.  Where it says “Add special instructions to the seller”, you or your parent should type in “Bee Club”.  Booklets cost $21.00 and will probably earn up to 90% profit if someone helps you purchase your booklet. 

If you work hard doing odd jobs and chores for family members, relatives, friends and church members, you could earn approximately $79.00 after you repay the person who helped you.  If someone loans you money to purchase the booklet, you can certainly pay them back. 

You can serve others by washing dishes, dusting, raking leaves, vacuuming floors or other needed household duties.  You could rack in some good money.  For the reason that people see your willingness to work, they are certainly more inspired to help you.  Most noteworthy, you should only work for people you or someone in your family is familiar with for safety reasons.

The IBeWorking4Me Club will be offering opportunities to those youth who are willing to work to have spending power.  While there is a lot of talk of youth not having activities to do, this club provides positive paths for youth to follow.  It’s presented in club form because youth like to be associated with being a part of something big.  The link below will lead you to “The Bee Club”.

Student canvassers must know how to use the Internet.  They must know how to send and receive emails.  If parent gives permission. they must be willing to get their student a free Paypal account to receive payment after each campaign is over.  To apply for an account, they can visit www.Paypal.com.  They must have an email address to obtain a PayPal account.  C-FUN will need the email address to send payment.  They can then send the new Paypal email address to (fcresouces@aol.com) with your name and contact information to be added to our distribution list for notifications and payments.

When we reach our goal of 5000 donor tickets, C-FUN will have a random drawing to give away 50-$25.00 cash prizes.  Prize money will be sent to the Paypal account of all the winners.  The safety of this opportunity allows the student to stay in their normal environment and doesn’t necessarily require unusual transportation provisions.  This is an ongoing project sponsored by The P.O.O.R. Project, an initiative of C-FUN.

2015: Anointed For Service

CFUN Talent Search.  Thank God for allowing us to see another year.

This year, 2015, The P.O.O.R. Project (Purchase Our Own Respect) is searching for “ANOINTED TALENT”, not “AMAZING TALENT”.  God made ALL entertainment “Good”.  It only becomes perverted when we put our negative spin on it.  Perversion is opposition against an act or it is something that is directed away from what is good or right.  C-FUN desires what is good and right for our families.  We know that Alabama has some amazing talent, but we also know that God can and will anoint amazing talent for his purpose.  If you know anyone with an anointing on his/her/their talent, please direct them to us.  We would like to showcase their talent in some of our upcoming projects.  We are ready to schedule auditions.  My contact info is: Lois Simmons, (205) 744-0883, press #1 or #4 to leave me a message.

The P.O.O.R. Project is my assignment from God.  Since I started this project I can name the people that God sent to meet a special need of mine.  Much love to Ms. Yolanda Hardy at the Smithfield Public Library, Mr. Randall Woodfin, President of Birmingham City School Board & City Attorney, Ms. Angela Williams at the Park & Recreation Board in Birmingham and Mr. James Gibbs, Director of the Fitness Centers for the City of Birmingham. Through it all I’ve learned not to give up when people don’t reach back to help you because they’re not the ones God intended to use.  I press forward with his directions.  I also have some close friends who are just ordinary people like me, but will do extra-ordinary things to help me when needed.  I thank God for all of them.  So, for all those who don’t know what their purpose is in life, find a purpose of God that is worthy of your attention and begin to develop it.  Helping families and children is a purpose. Helping to feed the hungry is a purpose. Helping to educate young people and older people is a purpose. Giving support to one another is a purpose.  You can’t go wrong when you do for OTHERS, that which they can’t do for themselves or by themselves.  Let’s all climb up together.  God spoke to my heart when he gave me this assignment.  His spirit spoke these words to me, “I purchased everyone’s redemption, now it’s time to purchase your own respect”.  AWESOME WORD to me.  He accomplished this by giving the life of his only son, now what are we doing to give back to him and is it enough?  We can’t love more than God, but we can strive to love as he loves.  You can become a family member of C-FUN by going to www.MyCfun.org and click on “JOIN US”.  God turned the world upside down with 12 disciples. He said greater works than these we will do, so let’s get kicking.  I love you all in Christ!!!

In His Service
