Everyone Has A Story...
Educating and supporting foster and adoptive families including those who wrap around them, through our training and experiences.
Trauma-Informed Care With A Biblical Perspective
Raivu, (pronounced 'ray-voo') is a Japanese word meaning "to live".
We feel passionately and are committed to meeting the needs of individuals, families and youth through:
Public speaking - to foster awareness of the needs of a foster/adoptive child.
Trust-Based Relational Intervention® Caregiver Training - TBRI® is a trauma-informed evidence-based holistic approach that brings healing through meeting the needs of the whole child. This training can be presented in only the evidence-based approach or with the "Created to Connect" Bible study guide.
Making Sense of Your Worth/Anchored - MSOYW/A is designed to guide individuals on finding your self-worth and identity in Christ.
Ongoing support for individuals and families through:
Taking the journey to parent, especially through foster care and adoption will undoubtedly challenge you in places that you didn't even know existed. Understanding who you are and where you and your children's behaviors come from will, in turn, provide an atmosphere of safety and trust for your children to grow, connect and to live life with a purpose.
It's all begins with understanding who you are for life to begin making sense. Life is hard, the things we as humans endure are hard. Though there are many moments of laughter and joy it is inevitable that sadness and pain will come. Your purpose never changes through the experiences that you have. The experiences are just that, experiences, sometimes by our own choice sometimes by the will of another. Being a follower of Jesus Christ does not change that. Scripture makes it very clear that we will endure trials and hardships, yet we are to take heart because He has overcome the world.
We feel passionate to speak, train and coach on trauma-informed care with a Biblical perspective; how to see, live life, and LOVE through the eyes of Jesus.
Two Lives One Purpose...
For we are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
Corey and Jodi
We are excited about the new season of life and where God is leading us with Raivu For Kids. It is in our life experiences and training we feel God has made it clear that we need to speak, train, and coach how to do life, but with new eyes.
"God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms of this revelation." Deuteronomy 29:29
It all starts with being obedient, having a willing heart, and learning that everything starts with our identity as children of God. Once you know who you are it is in that place, we believe God has asked us to give a voice to the voiceless.
Understanding who you truly are as a Christ-follower and how to navigate life and LOVE through His eyes changes everything.
