Hope 4 The Wounded, LLC, is a consulting firm that Joe & I co-founded. Joe is definitely the front-line person for this venture while I try to tackle the behind the scenes stuff. Joe has authored a book, "Reaching the Wounded Student", which is the foundation to what he speaks about at conferences & when school districts hire him to do professional development trainings.
I have started to get some questions about it, so I thought this would be the perfect time to share a couple of links. His publisher, Eye on Education, just recently did a two-part author spotlight about Joe, so if you are interested in where our hearts have led us over the years, these might give you an idea.
You can view Part 1 of Joe's Author Spotlight here.
Part 2 is here.
This whole adventure has really been an amazing journey. I can't go with Joe all of the time when he travels, but I have been able to go to some of the bigger venues when he has needed help. Joe has been given a wonderful gift to reach people, engage them in what he has to say, & give encouragement. We have been blessed by so many educators & other people that work with children who have come up after he's done speaking to share their stories & how what he's said has impacted them.
We are ever so thankful for the passion God has put in our hearts for the hurting & lost children of this world, both in our personal & "professional" lives & especially thankful for those we have the privilege to meet along the way that share that passion, too. I'm guessing that if you've taken the time to read this far, you are one of those people, so thanks...YOU ARE AWESOME!!
