"Raising Lee Ann" (A Tale of Italy, Alzheimer's and Strong Foundations) Ep. 46

Living with Alzheimer's. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a parent with Alzheimer's living with you?  How about as a young woman?  Lee Ann shares her story of faith from a little Italian girl, who never knew her father. She was raised by her single mom who though she  only had the opportunity to complete a 6th grade education gave Lee Ann the love and strong faith foundation she would need for life. Today  Lee Ann is an adjunct professor at the South Florida Bible College and Theological Seminary and the author of many books, including The Brightest Minds in Children's Spirituality. She has created many videos and children's books to help parents in raising Christian kids. Her desire to give back is palpable, and in her story you will see what made her the joyful Christian woman she is today. IThes. 5:16-18 "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."--------------------------------------Sharing Points:Italian upbringingRaised by a single momSaved from her mother's abusive boyfriendFatherless upbringingSaved from abuseNot able to go to collegeA young adult caregiver for her mother with Alzheimer'sMother with Alzheimer's gets lost for daysTransition to a care facilityMarriage and familySeaKids MinistryRaising Christian Kids PodcastThe Brightest Minds in Children's Spirituality Her producer  Cliff McDowell 23 EntertainmentBooks turned into an animation series called SeaKidsSouth Florida Bible College and Theological Seminary Adjunct ProfessorResources:Lee Ann Mancini's Website:https://leeannmancini.com/Ken Hamm "Answers in Genesis" FB Group Raising Christian KidsSeaKids TV- https://seakidstv.com/------------------------------------------For more everyday extraordinary faith stories:https://lettersfromhomepodcast.com/*FREE APP* Letters From Home Podcast has its own downloadable app., with all of our episodes in one easy place.  Search our podcast name in the Apple APP store, and in the Google Play store.
