Hey, have you heard that corn causes cancer?

Share This:

What would Iowa farmers do if the world believed corn causes cancer?  At first, farmers would protest, reminding people that corn is great for feeding cattle, pigs and poultry.  But if consumers stopped buying corn, would Iowa farmers keep growing corn?  NO!  Corn production would stop FAST!

The shocker statement about corn is a metaphor for what Quakerdale is going through today, one that could also be applied to churches as well.

Would cancerous corn mean farmers were no longer farmers?

Farmers would still be farmers, but I believe  farming  would change radically and almost instantly.  For a few years, it would be tough.  Farmers would go through some really hard times and some would quit. But farmers would still be farmers with the goal of feeding the world and our rich black Iowa farm land would still be here.  The idea of growing crops would still be the mission of farmers and another crop or two or three would replace corn, and eventually Iowa farmers would be busy again through adaptation and planning.

Today, “best practices” taught in universities and among social service professionals claim that out-of-home group homes and shelters are universally bad for families.  This movement started back in the 1990’s.  This summer, responding to diminishing placements and these  “best practices,” Quakerdale closed the last of our group homes and shelter programs.  We closed our Waterloo and Manning campuses because enrollment had dropped (again) over 30% from the previous 12 months.  The state (our customer for those services ) rarely requires kids to be helped in out-of-home services anymore.

Since June people have asked, “Does Quakerdale help any kids anymore?”

Quakerdale has a mission, just like Iowa farmers, and a cultural change will not stop our efforts.  Quakerdale exists to teach children about God and teach them discipline and work skills, a mission begun by our founder Josiah White in 1851.

Thankfully, Quakerdale has many other ministry programs which help thousands of children and their families each year!  Even though we are renting and willing to sell the Manning and Waterloo facilities,  we continue to have a clear mission to teach people about God and life skills,  just as we have been doing for over 165 years.

Just like the farmer with a mission to grow crops, Quakerdale is still a ministry with a mission.  While the approach was primarily group homes and shelters in the 70’s – 80’s, other programs and ministries have been developed.  Last year, Quakerdale served 3464 children and their families.  167 of those children were served in our group homes and shelters.   That means that in 2015, 3297 children were ministered to by Quakerdale through home and community based programs!

Yes, folks, Quakerdale is still #makingadifference for kids and their families in Iowa and the midwest.  Our methods might be forced to change, and the means may change, but our mission remains the same!  That mission is what makes Quakerdale so special…

Please come to our web site www.quakerdale.org to learn of all the different things going on at Quakerdale.   Or, if you are a facebook friend, like us there to see regular updates on what is happening at Quakerdale.   We are excited to see what God has for us in the future as we make room for his guidance and change at Quakerdale.

And PLEASE NOTE that Quakerdale ministries are made possible by the donations of volunteers and gifts of donations or assets of those from the past and present! Keep us in your annual or monthly charitable giving.  Remember us in your estate planning so you can leave a legacy with Quakerdale!

PS. I mentioned the church in my opening “shocker” metaphor. Have any of you noticed church attendance changing?  I believe that the church, like Quakerdale, and like the farmer, has the same important mission it has always had, but how it does it needs to change, and as soon as churches figure out what the change needs to be we will see church participation rise.  Watch this interesting video spoken to college students about the revival of our selves and of the church into the future.  It takes pruning and faith to go to the next place God has for us!  We have to stop doing old things in order to start new things for Christ!

Guilt free parenting

Share This:

There are a lot of babies in my life right now – seven people, including me, have had a baby within the last few months.  Our family is on baby number three, but some of these families are on baby number one.  This means baby showers and games where you give the new parents advice about being a parent.  This is hard because you have so many decisions to make as a parent, and there is some pretty crazy advice out there. Should I use formula or breastfeed? Should I use cloth or disposable diapers? Should I vaccinate my child? Should I spank my child?  Should I home school, send my kids to public school, or Christian school? A friend shared this video with me and it couldn’t explain all of these questions any better!

 

 

Here is the thing, God made us all different, so each family is going to be different.  What works for me may not work for you.  The best advice I could give new parents is do what is best for your family. If it works for your family to eat cereal for supper every Tuesday because of soccer practice and there is a lot to pack in, do it!  If your family needs to sit in the back of the church because of rowdy kids, do it!  If your 18 month old has to sleep with you so that everyone in your household can get some sleep, do it!  Do not feel guilty for trying new things and see how they work.  You must do things that work for your family.  If an unusual approach keeps you from flying apart and helps your sanity, there is no reason to feel guilty.  This is the reason there are so many different ideas and approaches in parenting…  We all have special family characteristics and in makes our communities rich and colorful.

Let’s face it, being a parent is extremely hard.  Every child is different, and they do not come with instructions. I was in the pediatrician’s office with my youngest for her sixth month check up and the doctor said to me, “you are doing a good job”.  It was such balm to a tired mamma’s soul.  Just hearing the affirmation that I was doing a good job meant so much to me.  I realized how important is it is to encourage and build up other parents. This is the perfect quote to describe parenting:

Behind every great kid

kaden blog pic

 

is a mom who’s pretty sure

Jordyn blog pic

 

she’s screwing it up.

 

Harper smile

 

We are so hard on ourselves.  In reality, things really will be okay.  You ARE doing a good job. You WON’T fly apart. God has a plan for your beautiful family!  Don’t feel like you have to listen to everyone and their advice.  Pick what works for your family, enjoy your kiddos, and maybe you can be the person in other’s lives who builds them up.

Mindy Hadley, on behalf of the Quakerdale team.

What is Your Marathon?

Share This:

“Here’s how you run a marathon. Step one:  you start running.  There is no step two.”

Barney Stinson, How I Met Your Mother

26.2 medal

I AM not a runner.  I DO coach basketball for a living, drink way too much Mountain Dew, and listen to Taylor Swift.  I am wired to set huge goals and take abnormally large risks.  So when my wife asked me to join her in her quest to run the San Francisco marathon, I quoted a modern day philosopher—Barney Stinson (see above quote) and then took the plunge.

“The race is not given to the swift, nor to the strong…”

“…but to those who endure to the end.”

Taken at face value, the commonly misinterpreted and combined Bible reference of verses from Ecclesiastes 9 and Matthew 24 certainly fueled some of my training and preparation.

Long story short, we endured—All 26.2 miles.

Cue the Rocky theme song music and the constant buzzing of our phones as the congratulatory text messages and comments via social media poured in.

But now my left foot hurts.  Seriously, like…it’s hard to walk and I could have a major issue type of hurt.  And some of my toenails are going to fall off.  I feel like I got hit by a train.  And now I am thinking about my right hip, sheesh…the list goes on.  And my wife, I know she has her own pains.

But guess what? We have a medal and a memory.  Not to mention an accomplishment that less 0.5% of the population can say they have achieved.  We have a pair of little eyes—our two year old—who saw how we endured and battled to overcome the face of difficulty and complete our goal.  I’ll limp to that!

Leadership is about accomplishing things in a way that inspires others.   Will my son or my boss or you ever sign up to run a marathon just because I did? Probably not.

But instead, I want you and everyone who knows my journey to finish the impossible task they have before them.  I ran the race for my team, for my son, and I certainly ran the race for me, but I also did it for you.  I did it so you could:

  • Complete your degree and grow the industry you are passionate about
  • Raise your unruly toddlers to the kind, caring, thoughtful leaders God created them to be
  • Get out of debt and live financially free
  • Restore your broken relationships and create wonderful memories

I did it so you could push past your limits and see a change in yourself.  I did it to say that I finished and then tell you that you can too.  Ultimately, I did it for the domino effect.

A crucial aspect of inspiring others and leaving a legacy is setting a goal and executing it to the finish.  When we signed up for the San Francisco Marathon back in November, we had no real idea what we would feel like in preparation, in route, or at the finish line.  But we kept moving forward—and we did it!  Some of you may think we accomplished what is impossible.  Heck, at mile 23, I thought it was impossible.  If we would have stopped there, what would be changed?  Who would be moved?  Instead, we kept going.  There are other aspects of our life that have been “impossible” –but we kept going.  There are things that you’ve done—and that you are going to do—that seem impossible…but you’ll keep going.  The most successful people and the true leaders, who can make a real difference in people’s lives, just don’t quit.  They keep moving forward.

If you stumbled upon this post and feel you can relate, I know two things about you.  You want to make a difference and you are not going to quit until you do.  You’ll keep moving forward.  Email me and let me know how you’re doing it. (djohnston@quakerdale.org)

I look forward to seeing the growth of others because of my race.  I look forward to hearing your story of conquering the impossible.  Be sure to #RiseUp, leave a legacy, and let me know if you ever need anything!

Quakerdale Announces 2015 Volunteer of the Year

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Daniel L. Smith
Director of Development
Quakerdale

DLSmith@Quakerdale.org

(New Providence, IA) – On Thursday, June 30, Quakerdale held a Volunteer Reception in the Broer Commons at their New Providence campus. Volunteers from various Quakerdale ministries came together to celebrate the power of volunteering, to recognize the 2015 Q-Award Nominees, and to honor the 2015 Volunteer of the Year by presenting them the Q-Award.

Established in 1979, the Quakerdale Q-Award annually recognizes and honors individuals who have enhanced the organization’s mission through significant and/or unique volunteer contributions. Q-Award recipients are nominated by Quakerdale staff and selected by the Board of Trustees. Ministry directors are asked to consider special non-staff individuals who they believe made a significant contribution either directly or indirectly through raising funds, hands-on physical work, or in some other way partnering with them by sharing their time, talents, and/or treasures. All nominees are invited to and recognized at the Volunteer Reception held in June. The recipient of the Q-Award is announced at this event.

2015 Volunteer Nominees are…

Terry Beare, Promise Academy, New Providence Campus
Terry Beare and Mary Humrichouse

Terry Beare with Mary Humrichouse

“Terry is a tireless volunteer for home Eagle Basketball games keeping the score book. Terry has done this for at least four years and maybe longer. Many times Terry will keep the book for three back-to-back games…meaning almost six hours of nonstop action to keep track of. Terry also volunteers with the maintenance department every Tuesday and many weeks more often than that.”

Larry Ketcham, Promise Academy Administrator

Samantha Stephens, Wolfe Ranch, Marshalltown

Rochelle Stephens with Mary Humrichouse

“Sammie Stephens and her family have always helped with chores at Wolfe Ranch, usually just on Sundays. With the staff change and all that was happening in 2015, Sammie took on chores 6 days a week. She went above and beyond the call of duty by also helping with camps over the summer. The Stephens family is a vital and cherished part of the volunteer group at Wolfe Ranch.”

Samantha was unable to attend. Receiving on her behalf was Rochelle Stephens.

Riley Farland, Facility Manager, Wolfe Ranch

Patti Downs, Programs & Services, Waterloo Campus

Dave Holm with Patti Downs

“For the past couple years Quakerdale has partnered with Patti Downs to have a garden. Patti is the garden manager and works with a couple ladies from Food Corp. Laura McInerney and Grace Margherio are both Food Corps service members working mostly with the Waterloo public schools and community organizations to engage children in learning about nutrition, cooking, and gardening. These ladies come weekly to work with our clients in the garden and then at lunch time, show the clients different ways to prepare vegetables and then eat with them. This has been a real positive experience for the clients and they seem to enjoy eating something that they have helped grow.”

Leah Churchill, Leader of Operations, Waterloo

Ray Schumacher, Facilities, New Providence Campus
Ray Schumacher wiith Mary Humrichouse

Ray Schumacher with Mary Humrichouse

“Ray has dutifully worked each week on our maintenance volunteer day operating and maintaining the floor polisher. Ray is easy to work with and has even done research for the project on his own initiative. The polisher weighs several hundred pounds and grinds the cement to a polished finish through repeated trips across the surface. Ray has logged countless hours polishing floors in the Broer addition making a surface that will last for decades!”

Robert Talbot, Executive Director

Jean Gedlinske & Orchard Hill’s Route 55, Spiritual Life, Waterloo Campus

Dave Holm with Jean Gedlinske

“Jean and the Route 55 group from Orchard Hill serve at our Waterloo campus by teaching skills training to our youth. They have hosted a game night, a Mary Kay health & beauty demo, provided a Social time at Slife cottage, worked in flower beds with residents, provided an evening meal, worked in the Community Garden with Patti Downs most Thursday mornings, facilitated a Thanksgiving Meal cooking event, and even showed residents how to sew Christmas stockings. Jean also worked with UNI student volunteers to provide a Financial Literacy class.”

Jean was unable to attend. Receiving on her behalf was Dave Holm.

Dave Holm, Spiritual Life Director

Robert Barnes, Heartland Vineyard Church, Hope4Healing
Robert Barns with Mary Humrichouse

Robert Barns with Mary Humrichouse

Bob has been an absolute blessing for Hope4Healing. He would be embarrassed for us to say this, but he is the role model we mention to other church communities considering Hope4Healing. We would like a person like Bob in every community we serve.

He has a very genuine love for people, giving them what they need not just fulfilling a request. He allows them to do what they can for themselves, empowering them to take more control of their lives. At the same time he reacts with “grace” when bad decisions are made, offering forgiveness and perseverance rather than condemnation or giving up. His is a stance of hope, keeping focused on possibilities for positive change.

Bob expects similar attitudes from his team. He has conscientiously selected the members of his team, realizing such a ministry is not for everyone. When things don’t go well within the team, Bob is willing to make the difficult decisions. He is also a source of emotional support for his team, offering guidance when needed. At the same time he is not reluctant to brainstorm with others to find the best solutions to difficult situations. He seeks guidance and support from the Heartland Vineyard pastoral team when circumstances are such that their support is needed. He has a willingness to accept the decision of the church leadership even when the decision they make is not what he originally thought he wanted. He has the humility to share decision making. Bob has managed to lead his team even amidst his own deep personal losses and chronic health issues.
