Announcing Created To Connect Study Guide

by Dan Cruver Published May 4, 2010

Enthusiasm for adoption within the evangelical community is at an all-time high, but too often this enthusiasm is not accompanied by adequate preparation for the lifelong journey that adoption is. This is why I am very grateful to God for the faithful ministry of Dr. Karyn Purvis and Michael and Amy Monroe. In continued response to seeing too many families begin the adoption journey without being adequately prepared for it, they have written another resource that will serve families extremely well: Created To Connect: A Christian’s Guide to The Connected Child.

Dr. Purvis and the Monroes have made the entire study guide available for free download. You can download it here.

From the Empowered to Connect website:

Created To Connect: A Christian’s Guide to The Connected Child is a study guide created by Dr. Karyn Purvis and Michael & Amy Monroe to help illuminate the biblical principles that serve as the foundation for the philosophy and interventions detailed in Dr. Purvis’ book, The Connected Child.  This study guide is designed to help adoptive and foster parents better understand how to build strong and lasting connections with their children, and is ideal for use in small groups as well as individually or as a couple.
