Dear Family,

I pray that your week is off to a great start and the joy of the Lord accompanies you throughout your day. Recently I was out at Son Farm, Family Foundation Fund’s organic garden/ learning lab, working with the young men in our program. During one of our water break’s I begin to take notice of all the Evergreen tree’s that were around the property. The most impressive characteristic about the Evergreen tree is that no matter what condition the environment surrounding it is in, it remains consistent, green, and full of life. I personally believe we as parents, teachers, leaders, and decision makers are to be like the Evergreen tree, always full of life, consistent, and able to love and impact our environments for good no matter what circumstances life throws at us.

Be blessed!

The McClellan Family

David & Mary Catherine McClellan are avid “Be Intentional” viewers and serve on the governing board of Family Foundation Fund. They were kind enough to share with us one of their family moments over the 4th of July holiday. David has a wonderful heart for the community and is heavily invested in the importance of fatherhood. It’s a blessing to see him being intentional in the lives of his family. Thank you, David, for being an intentional father and friend.

P.S. If you have family “Be Intentional Moments” you desire to share with the group please send them in.

Dear Family,

I hope your Monday is going well and that you had a wonderful week. At the Kirk household we had a delightful time relaxing and enjoying one another while celebrating the 4th of July. During dinner as I was observing all of the activity surrounding the children and grandchildren, and watching their joy and laughter, I was reminded of the importance to simply be at rest and enjoy the presence of our heavenly Father. He has it all under control. I pray that you all have a peaceful, productive, and joyous week abiding in his presence.

Be blessed!

Happy Independence Day!

It’s always nice to sit back and enjoy family and memories while observing the holidays. In the Kirk household the 4th of July has traditionally been spent with a nice grill out and firecracker wars. Seeing that we have four grand kids under the age of 5, I pray that my son’s find a new and safer tradition this year.

One of the seeds (life principle’s) my lovely bride (Margienell) and I planted in our family culture starting out what was Joy. It was important for us that our kids grew up in an uplifting environment where they could have fun, be strengthened, feel safe, and most importantly be at peace. For us Joy and happiness were a spring board that allowed us to plant many beautiful things in the family culture along the journey.

Be intentional about planting seed bearing principle in your family culture that bring forth life, joy, peace, and love.

P.S. I would love to see how you and your family spend your holiday, so if by chance you and your family take pictures, do me a favor and share some with ol Papa O at onnie@familyfoundationfund.org.

Be blessed!

Be Intentional ~ S3E13 ~ “We Need Agreement”

BeIntentional-OnnieKirk-S3E13

by Founder of the Family Foundation Fund, Onnie Kirk
https://youtu.be/AzrVB2qk9OU

In a world where there is much dividing us, now more than ever agreement & unity is essential for us in our relationships and every day walks.It’s easy for us to focus on the things we don’t like and or understand about someone, but it becomes challenging when we have to force ourselves to look past their flaws and just love. Our adversary understands that amazing things happen in peoples lives once agreement and unity are operating in our relationships, that’s why focus is to constantly keep us at odds with one another.

Our heavenly father has placed special giftings and talents in each of us that we are to share with one another to enrich each others lives. Be intentional about working through barriers in relationships with one another so that unity and agreement can come forth, and watch the amazing things that will happen as a result of us being unified in agreement.


Be Intentional ~ S3E12 ~ “Wrestle Not”

BeIntentional-OnnieKirk-S3E12

https://youtu.be/fkm45gDYM8s

Many years ago my family faced a troubling situation when my wife, who was seven months pregnant at time, was hit by a drunk driver. Often times in the midst of troubles it’s hard to hear God because our worlds are shaken up and in the midst of it all we’re trying to figure out what the next step is. In many cases, unforeseen hardships we encounter cause a snowball affect which results in us wrestling with the many facets of life. If we make it a lifestyle to “watch & pray”, this will help us prepare for the storms ahead.


Be Intentional ~ S3E11 ~ “Watch & Pray”

BeIntentional-OnnieKirk-S3E11

by Founder of the Family Foundation Fund, Onnie Kirk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z94fBYdJs5I

I pray that your 2017 has started off well. Several of you have indicated various challenges that the Lord has brought you through this year and it’s blessing to hear the many glory reports.

The other day, while doing my daily routine I heard a man say “Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship.” As I sat there and pondered these words I began to think “Would I really be intentional in serving the Lord if everything was easy with no present need to press into him?”

I’m by no means saying life should be full of struggles or that the heavenly father wants to purposely trip you up every so often for the heck of it. But I firmly believe these challenges and obstacles we go through in life provide perspective and It’s through these newfound perspectives that we’re able to find what he has for us along the journey of life.

Whether you’re currently abased or abound watch, pray, and see what Father will do in your life.
