April is always my passion month

April is always my passion month

It seems like every month highlights at least a dozen different causes.
I have four things I am passionate about.
• Military Families
• Autism Early Education
• Hurting Teens/Twenty-somethings
• Encouraging others

The month of April has (among others)…
• Autism Awareness
• Month of the Military Child
• Child Abuse Prevention

The month of April also has National Tartan Day, on the 6th, for those of us with Scottish ancestry. Just sayin’.

Of course, June is PTSD Awareness and November is Military Family Appreciation month, but April holds most of my passions in the same month, so you will probably see lots of things on my social media pages this month about Autism and Military brats (once a brat always a brat – HOOAH!). Although, that’s probably not any different than any other month, right?

As a little side note here, The Military Family Ministry at Hope Community Church is holding their annual Symposium, Living with PTSD, on April 16th. For more information click the following link… http://gethope.net/event/living-with-ptsd-symposium/.

I believe it is good to support a cause you are passionate about. It helps us get out of our own little world to help and encourage others.

How about you? What causes do you support? What are you passionate about?
