Life’s Beacon Foundation Speakers Program
sharing experience, strength, and hope
A community interactive speaker program designed with tailored presentations to reach the many needs of the young and old. Through personal stories, we motivate young persons and adults to make responsible choices as they prepare to transition into adulthood or working through life situations. We encourage positive self-image and healthy self-esteem showing that resistance to peer pressure is possible for both young and old alike. Through a combination of sharing both positive and negative life experiences, we can help others to better prepare themselves to handle situations in life which they will surely encounter. We believe it is extremely important to build and support positive, spiritual mentoring. Schools, churches, organizations, juvenile facilities, and correctional institutions are welcomed speaker sites.
Life’s Beacon Foundation Prayer Request – the power of prayer
Life’s Beacon Foundation prayer request was created for those individuals who desire to have their prayer lifted up by the local church community. County and State prisoners, shut-ins, persons living in retirement or nursing homes, etc. may send their prayer requests to Life’s Beacon Foundation which then distributes them to local churches to be lifted up in prayer during Sunday services. At Life’s Beacon Foundation, we believe in helping those physically separated or disconnected from the church community to be lifted up in prayer.
Twelve Step Study – learning the principles of change
Life’s Beacon Foundation has both a secular and Christian based twelve-step study. The difference between the two studies is that the secular study allows you to name your own higher power and the Christian study considers Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior.
The secular 12-Step study uses Alcoholics Anonymous and/or Narcotic Anonymous material, Joe and Charlie Big Book Study tapes, and the book, “The Steps We Took” by Joe McQ, and/or Michael Johnson 12-Step lecture tapes.
The Christian 12-Step study uses the Bible and the book, “The Steps We Took” by Joe McQ.
