More than eight in 10 public schools have seen stunted behavioral and social-emotional development in their students since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and 57 percent of teen girls and 29 percent of teen boys reported feeling “persistently sad or hopeless” over the past year.Many of the children being raised by the parents in our audience have experienced trauma before, but it feels like more kids are being shaken by current events.Is there a distinction between trauma with a “T” and little “t” trauma?How do we know if our child has been traumatized, regardless of whether it is an event outside of their personal world or an event that they are involved in?What are the symptoms of trauma and how to they vary by age of the child? (pre-school, school-aged, adolescents)Why do some kids seem to take all the troubling world events in stride while others struggle? And why do some kids seem to bounce back quickly from troubling events that happen to them directly?

    1251. SHOCKING Visa + Solana Test Results | MASSIVE Crypto Payments Update!!

    Visa's interest in Solana is a significant development in the world of blockchain and payments. Solana is a high-performance blockchain network that can process up to 50,000 transactions per second (TPS). This makes it much faster than traditional payment networks like Visa, which can only process around 24,000 TPS. Solana is also much cheaper than traditional payment networks, with transaction fees of just a few cents.Visa's deep dive into Solana suggests that the company is seriously considering using the blockchain network for its payments processing. This could be a major boost for Solana, as it would help to legitimize the network and attract more users and developers.The move is even more interesting in light of Visa's recent exploration of Solana for its stablecoin pilot. Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies that are pegged to a fiat currency, such as the US dollar. They are often used as a way to transfer value between different blockchains or to make payments. Visa is reportedly exploring using Solana to settle its USDC stablecoin transactions. This would allow Visa to move money more quickly and cheaply than it currently does.Meanwhile, Stellar (XLM) has refreshed its branding with Idris Elba. Stellar is a blockchain network that is designed to facilitate cross-border payments. It is often seen as a competitor to Ripple (XRP), another blockchain network that is used for cross-border payments.The rebranding of Stellar with Idris Elba is a sign that the company is serious about growing its user base and expanding its reach. Idris Elba is a well-known actor and musician who has a large following on social media. His association with Stellar could help to attract new users to the network.Overall, the interest of Visa and Idris Elba in Solana and Stellar are positive developments for the blockchain industry. They suggest that these blockchain networks are seen as viable alternatives to traditional payment networks. This could lead to increased adoption of blockchain technology for payments in the future.Here are some of the reasons why Solana could be a game-changer in the payments ecosystem:Speed: Solana can process transactions much faster than traditional payment networks. This could make it a more attractive option for businesses that need to process payments quickly.Scalability: Solana is designed to be scalable, so it can be used to handle even the most demanding payment processing needs.Security: Solana is a secure blockchain network, so businesses can be confident that their transactions are safe.Cost-effectiveness: Solana is a cost-effective blockchain network, so businesses can save money on their payment processing costs.If Solana can live up to its potential, it could revolutionize the way we pay for goods and services. It could make payments faster, cheaper, and more secure. This could have a major impact on the global economy.

Please seek professional help if you find yourself struggling with some of the realizations that you may experience during this episode.** This week's interview is with Rodger Tellefson. Rodger was born in Sacramento, California at the Sutter Memorial Hospital and was adopted at 3 days old. Rodger recalls that at 9 years old, his adopted parents stood across the living room with their backs turned to Rodger and his younger adopted brother, and then they told the boys they were adopted without facing them. It wasn't until 1982 when an older maternal sister, who was also an adoptee, found him and his life changed forever. At the time Rodger was found he was working, had just moved to a new residence and had a young family making it a challenge to reunite and make a connection with his biologicals. He later found that having different lifestyles and economic backgrounds was a factor as well in his union with some of his siblings. He has a 2-year degree from a junior college and worked for the Army Corps of Engineers in Sacramento which he retired from in '04. He was married for 39.5 years to his late wife who passed in September 2011. He has a daughter, 46, and a son, 44. You can find Rodger on Instagram at @r.tollef Rodger, thank you for volunteering to share your adoption story! ______________________ ***If you or someone you know would like to tell their adoption story on the podcast (anyone in the adoptee constellation), please send an email To ⁠MindYourOwnKarma@gmail.com⁠ and your story will be considered for the podcast. ***This podcast's mission is on adoption education.

    Hearing Jesus: Daily Bible Study, Daily Devotional, Hear From God, Prayer, Christian Woman, Spiritual Life, Build a Relations

    In this episode of the "Hearing Jesus" podcast, host Rachael Groll delves into the second half of Matthew chapter one, focusing on the story of Joseph's response to Mary's pregnancy through the Holy Spirit. This passage reveals profound insights into ancient Jewish culture, marriage customs, and the significance of Joseph's obedience. By diving into the background and cultural nuances of this passage, Rachael offers a fresh perspective on Joseph's response and its relevance to believers today. We see that obedience, even in the face of difficult circumstances, is the key to hearing God's voice more clearly.   This episode is a companion to Episode 5 of the Hearing Jesus for Kids Podcast: Hearing Jesus for Kids   For family discussion guides, journaling worksheets, bonus content, and our private discussion forum, please visit our Patreon page:  patreon.com/HearingJesus   FREE APP: Daily Bible Inspirations: https://onelink.to/groll Learn: https://shehears.org Shop: https://shehears.org/resources Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/she_hears/   Hey friends, welcome to the Hearing Jesus Podcast.    Do you sometimes doubt if you are truly hearing God's voice or if it's really your own? Do you wonder how you can know the difference? Do you struggle to feel confident in your relationship with God and what He says in his word? Do you sometimes feel stagnant or like you hit a wall in your spiritual life? Hey, I'm your host, Rachael Groll: missionary, author, pastor, and life coach. And I have been there. I, too, was doubting God's voice in my own life. I, too, felt insecure about the things I thought God might be calling me to do. I wanted to make a difference in the world and be obedient to what God was calling me to do, but I wasn't quite sure how to figure out what exactly that was. I kept telling myself that I was wasting time trying to figure it out or waiting for Him to show me. Or that I wasn't qualified to do the things I thought He might be telling me to do. The answer for me was found in the pages of the Bible, as I learned how to understand what it was actually saying. If you are ready to grow in your faith and to step confidently into the calling God has for you, then join me as we dig deep into God's word so you can learn to live out your faith in your everyday life.   Friend, you are loved, you are cherished, and you are His.   The Hearing Jesus Podcast will encourage and equip you to step into the calling God has for your life, living out your faith in the everyday. Together we will break down walls that keep us from growing spiritually. We will dig deep into our Bibles to understand and connect the Scriptures to our lives. We will boldly obey what God calls us to do, walking through doors that only He can open.     Discover more Christian podcasts at lifeaudio.com and inquire about advertising opportunities at lifeaudio.com/contact-us.
