My mother had a stroke Sunday night, discovered the following morning when my brother had the folk where she lives check up on her when she didn’t answer the phone. All brain activity has ceased & she is expected to die at any moment. Nonetheless she lives as I write, & thus I wonder as you read this if you might invoke St.Joseph on her behalf & perhaps say an Ave or even more, that God’s Grace will cleanse her heart of whatever keeps her from Him, & thus for the salvation of her soul.
Merci. Her name is Maxine.
Father, grant Maxine the grace of a happy death and give all who love her grace, consolation, peace, faith, hope, and love through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.

I want to share some good news in that after countless jobs I have submitted my resume for, I finally have a job interview tomorrow at 9 AM PST involving working as a Developmental Therapist (Habilitative Interventionist officially, here in Idaho). This is the type of job I have been hoping to do, having recently obtaining my certification for in early September.
I have worked in Children’s Mental Health for 10 years prior to having Sarah and for the last 5 months, as a psychosocial rehab specialist part time. However, with Joshua’s autism diagnosis, I have been yearning to work more with the disabled, which I consider a more positively focused field.I am about to complete a course in Group Coaching, where I hope to be able to launch some groups working with parents of special needs kids after the first of the year with the hope of better equipping them and supporting them as they address the needs of their families, as well as their own needs as parents. I’m excited about this venture as I am hoping to assist not only those in the Idaho Panhandle, the Northwest, but nationwide.
I would like to ask for your prayers, once again, not only for this job interview tomorrow, but for the opportunity to grow my Christian Life Coaching business in order that I can do the work I am convinced, the Lord has called me to do in order to not only provide for my children, but to spread the Good News. Thank you for joining me in this endeavor and for all of your support! I am truly blessed to have such a devoted group of friends and family who hold us up in prayer.
Father, hear my reader’s prayers for her job, her family, and her life as a disciple and apostle of Jesus Christ. Mother Mary and St. Joseph, pray for her. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
