Military Kids and Your Kidmin

There is a theory about the brain that if information is to be processed, a person must initially feel safe and loved. Most kids work through this progression naturally, yet if faced with a multitude of changes to one’s environment, it may be difficult to overcome. Having been a military kid myself, and now ministering to military kids, I wanted to share some unique obstacles they deal with and how you can help them feel cared for within your kids’ ministry.
