April 5th: Gretchen Corn “He Gives and Takes Away: Transformation Through Grief”

image

Gretchen Corn, originally from the Chicago suburbs, has now lived in Robinson with her husband Ryan and children Kayla (8), Dylan (5) and Sarah (3) for almost a decade. Her passions focus on walking alongside others in their trials and led her to receive her master’s degree in clinical counseling from Eastern Illinois University in 2012. Her degree is waiting to be fully utilized while she focuses on her exciting calling as a stay at home mom.
As a happily married young pastor’s wife, in Evansville, IN, Gretchen experienced an unexpected loss that completely changed the trajectory of what she understood her future to be. In this life, loss is unavoidable. How we respond to its blows will determine our ability to experience God’s continued blessings and personal growth.

Mom2Mom is for women of all ages and stages of life. We meet from 6:15-8:00pm at First Baptist of Robinson (301 South Jefferson). Free childcare is provided.

March 22nd: Megan Jones “Raising Awareness of Special Needs”

image

My name is Megan Jones and I am married to Aaron. We have 3 sons, Taren-16, Mason-11, and Jaxon-6. I work full time as a stockroom clerk and attend FBC Robinson. Aaron and I are the Higher Ground Youth leaders at FBC and I am also the Care Coordinator for Mom2Mom. Our youngest son, Jaxon, suffers from a rare genetic disorder which causes health problems, seizures, developmental and intellectual disabilities. We made the decision and promised ourselves early in Jaxon’s diagnosis and treatments that God was going to be magnified and glorified throughout the process. I will share our story, how God has guided our every decision, and how He has continued being our Rock throughout our journey as special needs parents.

In addition to sharing her story, Megan will answer questions of how we can best minister to families with special needs. I think this topic is one we can all be more aware of, and learn how to be sensitive and helpful to these families. Join us at FBC Robinson (301 South Jefferson) on Tuesday, March 22nd from 6:15-8:00pm. All ladies are welcome, free childcare is provided from infants through elementary age children.
