ParentingToday.org The sky truly is the limit. Honoring Christ by serving the needs of children and families


A Note From Bob What’s next?

The sky truly is the limit

for Sheridan House in 2012.

With the creation of our new parent education blog/podcast, ParentingToday.org, we are reaching millions of homes across the globe. Almost overnight, ParentingToday had a quarter of a million hits. Why? Because parenting is the number one felt need in our culture today. People are worried about a lot of things - the economy, saving their homes, their family’s health, just to name a few. However, the number one felt need for today’s parent is their children. Today’s parent may be highly educated in many areas, but parenting is typically not one of them.

...we are reaching millions of homes across the globe. What’s next for Sheridan House? Lord willing we will always have children’s homes and will continue helping thousands of single moms a year. Currently we have two counseling center locations and have plans to add two more. But the most significant thing we can do is help parents be parents before they need our residential assistance.

In 2012, we plan to produce more parenting curriculum and strategically expand the outreach of our podcasts. Within the next twelve months we will develop a parenting curriculum for the public sector; one that public schools and charter schools can use to help parents. If we are going to change America we need to understand it will never be changed from the White House. It will only be changed from your house and my house… and the church house.

We’ll see you at the starting line; and together, we can Step Out For Children & Families in Jesus’ name.

Six months ago, Johnna arrived at New Testament Baptist Church in need of help. This young single mom of two small children needed a job, a car, and most of all she needed Christ. Her new church had the privilege of introducing her to Christ and they were able to hire her as well. Johnna was overjoyed and overwhelmed by their love. The only thing missing on her list of needs was transportation. While God was working greatly through her church to meet these needs, He was also working through a local family...a family with a car to donate. That’s where Sheridan House entered into this ministry story. The Lord allowed us to partner with New Testament Baptist Church in offering hope and meeting the need of a vehicle for young Johnna. The moment we received the 2002 Toyota Camry, we knew it would be an excellent match for her.

Offering Hope & Meeting If you or someone you know has a vehicle to donate, please let us know. Visit SheridanHouse.org to download a vehicle donation form or call 954-583-1552 for more information. Needs.

We are always amazed how God, in His perfect timing, uses Sheridan House to bless someone in need. When the church contacted us, we didn’t have a car available, but we knew the Lord would provide one if it was part of His plan…and He did. Johnna is extremely grateful. The family who donated the vehicle is thrilled to make such a difference in her life. As usual, we are honored and humbled to partner with local churches to offer hope and meet needs in Jesus’ name.
