    Sugar Land, TX. –  Keller Williams Southwest agents and staff dedicate their time and efforts this year for an entire week in 2017, May 8 – 13, instead of just the annual Red Day volunteer events, which are slated for May 11, 2017.

    In alignment with their commitment to the Fort Bend community and mission to “Give Where We Live,” KW Southwest will reach out on Red Day to help the Fort Bend Animal Control, Fort Bend Family Promise and the Parks Youth Ranch.

    On Friday, May 12 the KW Southwest office will host a Blood Drive from 9:00 to 1:30 pm in the training room at 1650 Hwy 6 North, for the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center, “Commit for Life” program. For additional information on this event, contact Norman Lew.

    Local businesses and community members are welcome to bring up to two trash bags of papers that need to be shredded. In return, donations of canned goods or non-perishable food items are requested. All food collected during the event will be donated to the East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry.

    Red Day was introduced in 2009 and stands for Renew, Energize and Donate. Red Day was created as Keller Williams Realty’s annual day of service. Each year on the second Thursday of May, associates celebrate Mo Anderson’s birthday by spending the day away from their businesses serving worthy organizations and causes in their communities. RED Day is just another example of the commitment to each other and to the cities and towns where they live and work.

    HOUSTON SPEAKER DALLAS LOUIS SPEAKS ABOUT IMPACT OF DIVORCE ON CHILDREN

  • My position is about your behavior and choosing to be an adult.
  • Summary: Dallas Louis makes it her mission to educate people about the impact of divorce on children and families

    Houston, TX – Having grown up in two homes after her parents divorced, Dallas Louis makes it her mission to educate people about the impact of divorce on children. Using the analogy of how broken crayons can still color, this Houston author, speaker and blogger, also mom and wife, helps children of divorce see the opportunity to live into their full adult potential.

    During the Easter season, we often focus on beautiful colored eggs as a reminder of the new life that emerged from the tomb after the death of Christ. However, eggs can’t fulfill their purpose until they are cracked open. Whether their ultimate destination is to release a newborn chick or to become food, they don’t fulfill that function until they are cracked. Likewise, while we might enjoy the box full of new brightly colored crayons, crayons don’t fulfill their purpose of making art until they are used. In being used, they are often broken.

    Using the analogy of broken crayons that still color, Louis shares her thoughts about helping children when their parents divorce. She talks about how children are often broken by divorce, but like broken crayons are sometimes melted together, children are sometimes merged into new combinations of families. The melted-together crayons offer new coloring option. So too the divorce and re-marriage of birth parents can form new combinations of families that can enrich a child’s life.

    Divorce is one of life’s more painful experiences for everyone involved. In-laws struggle to know how or if to stay connected to former sons and daughters-in-law. Friends wonder if they should stay in touch with one or the other or neither of their divorced friends. But the real adjustment falls to the children who love both parents and have to shuffle back and forth between them. It is a time of many conflicting and complicated emotions and the situation really can’t be resolved easily. Louis knows this all to well, which is why she longs to engage others in conversations at retreats, church groups, spiritual gatherings or conferences.  “This is something I know. I can help them,” Louis said.

     “In fact, both my husband and I are products of divorce.  Between the both of us, we have had NINE parental influences through the years.  That total includes each time a parent remarried and divorced.  That did not leave us in a love triangle, it left us in a tangled, shapeless mess.”

    After she shared her perspective in a blog she discovered,  “The reader response was incredible to where they said ‘finally somebody is calling everybody out.’ My position is about your behavior and choosing to be an adult. My father used me deplorably against my mother. I don’t understand using children as pawns. It was all over the place when my parents divorced,” Louis said.

    Relying on her faith, for both she and her husband, Jeff, is how they continue to grow as a family with their three children.

    “God holds everything and is the center of all of it,” Louis said. “I’m fallen and sinful. My God is bigger than my sin and has my marriage in the palm of his hand. Your faith can get you through every day and even the worst days of your life.”

    ABOUT DALLAS LOUIS

    Dallas is committed to families and their success. She has a long history working at Trinity Lutheran Church and with Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) in Klein, Texas. Louis authored Girlfriends, Giggles & God, a 31-day women’s devotional in 2010 and The Mommy Diaries: How I’m Surviving Parenting Without Killing Anyone in 2012 to strengthen women in their daily lives.

    DIVORCING FAMILIES SUBJECT OF TALKS BY HOUSTON AUTHOR AND BLOGGER

  • “God holds everything and is the center of all of it,” Louis said
  • Summary: Dallas Louis Talks About Churches and Support for Divorced People In Broken Crayons Still Color Ministry

    Houston, TX – Houston author, blogger, and family advocate, Dallas Louis, has a mission to enlighten parents and spouses about what happens when divorce becomes a permanent part of their child’s life. She would also like to see churches understand and embrace the opportunity they to be a source of comfort and consolation to all the members of a divorcing or divorced family.

    When people are in emotional pain they often turn to churches for support. When that pain is caused by divorce, churches can do more to assist couples and their children. In addition to the pain caused by the conflicts that led to the divorce, faithful church members may also experience deep shame that they were unable to honor their marriage vows.

    When a spouse is missing from family life due to divorce there are multiple long-term challenges to contend with year after year. Children are often thoroughly confused and conflicted about what they can and cannot say to a parent about the other one. For people who’ve been active in a faith community together another challenge is deciding who stays and who leaves the church.

    Often the response of the church community adds pain to an already excruciatingly painful situation. Though divorce is unfortunately common in the current century, some churches still cut divorced individuals off from the community. This is a double loss – as the individuals lose an important part of their emotional support system and the church loses the time and efforts of a loyal member.

    Louis believes the church can be a haven for people who struggling to put their lives back together. First and most significantly, the church is the source of the good news that no matter how difficult life may be today, God has not forgotten or abandoned either one of them.  Additionally, the church community is an ideal place to be accepted just as one is, whether sad, depressed, angry, resigned, or any other emotion.

    Many churches offer some version of a Divorce Care program, which is a tremendous gift to newly divorced people. Such programs provide a confidentially safe place where participants can fully express the wide range of emotions typically experienced after a divorce. Additionally, such a program introduces participants to others who really can understand what they’re experiencing.

    Churches who make the effort to support divorcing members not only prove faithful to their mandate to heal the broken hearted, they also lay a foundation for future leaders who can become part of a team of members who reach out to future people whose lives are in shambles because of a divorce.

     “God holds everything and is the center of all of it,” Louis said. “I’m fallen and sinful. My God is bigger than my sin and has my marriage in the palm of His hand. Your faith can get you through every day and even the worst days of your life.” Churches that teach this with actions as well as words can be a tremendous source of hope and healing for their divorcing members and families.

    Louis launched her speaking ministry in January 2017 – “Broken Crayons Still Color.” She plans to dedicate her ministry to speaking to churches, retreats, women’s conferences and organizations to bring this message of hope. Louis and her husband, Jeff, both come from divorced families. They are committed to “still color” as they show love and family to their three teenagers.
