With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the gangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day. This will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning: My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing: Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrims’ pride, from every mountainside let freedom ring!
--Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his I Have a Dream speech, August 28, 1963
Welcome to the teaching area of Yates Family History, most of us have some issue from our past that brings us pain or causes us to react in anger or fear when it is triggered. The following are some outlines and teaching materials from different groups and teaching settings I have led. I have made every effort to base any teaching on biblical principles. That being said I must warn you this area contains unashamed, not politically correct, Christian teaching. If discussing religious topics and Christian teaching offends you. This may not be an area you want to explore. However, if you have tried everything else and are still hurting this is the area you need. I do not have any easy fixes or quick answers for you. But I will present some tested principles and biblical standards that will lead you to freedom.
The best way to proceed is to read the pages in order starting from the top link on the left. Taken out of context the pages may be hard to understand. Also if you will truthfully answer the questions and find someone that you can confide in and will pray for you as you go through the material. Yes this is like everything else in life you get out of it what you put in it. May God truly bless you in your journey to His abundant life.
