MAY 15, 2011- MAY 22, 2011

We will celebrate S.N.A.C.A. Week every year starting the Sunday after Mother’s Day to honor, encourage, and stand up for all the Adult Children everywhere who spent Mother’s Day hurting, aggravated,  and stressed out because of abusive, controlling, or abandoning birth-families.

For S.N.A.C.A. Week, we will:

  1. Spend five minutes every day this week lifting all abuse victims to the Lord in prayer, praying for protection for them, for the courage to do what they must to change their circumstances or leave their abusive relationships, and for peace of mind and heart.


  1. Tell at least one person the truth about our abusive relative this week.  Promise ourselves that for the rest of the year, we will not protect our abusive relative by our silence any longer, we will reveal the abuse to others, and will bring all deeds done in darkness into the light.  Tell the truth and the truth shall set us free!


  1. This week, we will choose one limit that we are going to set and enforce with our abusive or controlling birth-relative from now on.


  1. This week, we will choose one thing we dread doing, but always get pressured into, such as spending a holiday with an abusive relative, and decide not to do it this year.  By the end of the week, we will make concrete plans to do something else instead, and carry them out when the time comes.


  1. This week, we will think of one thing we want to do, but haven’t yet, because of our family’s disapproval.  We will commit to doing it this year, or, if it’s something long-term like finishing our education, commit to starting it this year.


  1. This week, we will commit to validating, encouraging, and praying for any abuse victim the Lord causes to cross our paths for the rest of the year.


Please spread the word to your friends~

Join us and let’s take a stand together to stop birth family-abuse, by the grace of God









I Am A Soldier In The Army Of God!


I am a soldier in the Army of God.

The Lord Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer.

The Holy Bible is my code of conduct.

Faith, prayer, and the Word are my weapons of warfare.

I have been taught by the Holy Spirit,

Trained by experience,

Tried by adversity,

And tested by fire.

I am a volunteer in this Army,

And I am enlisted for eternity.

I will either retire in this Army at the rapture,

Or die in this Army;

But I will not get out,

sell out,

be talked out,

or be pushed out.

I am faithful, reliable, capable, and dependable.

If my God needs me, I am there!

I am a soldier.  I am not a baby.

I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up, picked up, or pepped up.

I am a soldier.

No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me, or lure me.

I am a soldier.  I am not a wimp.

I am in place, saluting my King,

Obeying His orders,

praising His name,

and building His kingdom!

No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, candy,

Or give me handouts.

I do not need to be coddled, cradled, cared for, or catered to.

I am committed.

I cannot have my feelings hurt badly enough to turn me around.

I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside.

I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.

When Jesus called me into this Army, I had nothing.

If I end up with nothing, I will still come out ahead.

I will win.

My God has, and will continue, to supply all of my needs.

I am more than a conqueror. 

I will always triumph.

I can do all things through Christ.

Devils cannot defeat me,

people cannot disillusion me,

Weather cannot weary me,

sickness cannot stop me.

Battles cannot beat me,

money cannot buy me.

Governments cannot silence me,

And hell cannot handle me.

I am a soldier.

Even death cannot destroy me.

For when my Commander calls me from this battlefield,

He will promote me to Captain and

Then allow me to rule with Him.

I am a soldier in God’s Army,

And I am marching to claim the victory.

I will not give up.

I will not turn around.

I am a soldier, marching heaven bound!

Here I stand!  Will you stand with me?
