Ongoing support for individuals and families through:
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.
Parents and caregivers, this journey raising these humans you love, 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 live life with a purpose. We are looking forward to connecting with you as we provide trauma-informed care with a Biblical perspective; how to see, live life, and LOVE through the eyes of Jesus.
We feel passionate on our journey to speak, train, and coach addressing mental health needs within the Christian community. The Beacon brings all this together with a community-driven focus. We are honored to journey and walk this life with you.
Corey and Jodi
We are excited about the new season of life and where God is leading us with Raivu Ministries. As we go back to our roots "Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow." (Isaiah 1:17) 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.
