Your Feedback Here

YourWell, here we are at the beginning of a new year. Many of us have made resolutions or are working to create goals for 2015. My goals are to read my Bible every day and read at least one book a week. I’m also trying to write the rough draft for my next book relatively quickly. As I prepared to write a post for today, I was going to cover another topic in the Matthew 6:21 series. But, as long as we’re all thinking about goals, I’d like to hear your feedback about this blog.

TIO has been around for a little over a year now. Many of you started following it and participating in the discussions soon after it started. Others have discovered it only recently. I’d like to know what you hope to gain from reading this blog. Are you looking for encouragement? Bible studies about orphan care? Specific opportunities for you to get involved in? Updates on existing ministries? More “waiting children” to pray for? More information about adoption? Help understanding how kids become orphans and what happens to them after they become fatherless?

As a side-shoot of that, what’s your favorite feature on the blog right now? Do you like the Advocate & Pray posts best? Do you like a specific theme for the Friday posts? Did you have a favorite post or series from this past year?

How do you think TIO could improve?

As many of you know, I started TIO because of my own frustration as a young teen struggling to find orphan care opportunities available to me. I want this to be a place that you can find solutions to your own desire to learn more and get involved.

Please leave a comment with your feedback! It doesn’t take that long to jot down a few thoughts, and I’d love to know how to make this blog even more helpful to you. Thanks!

    I was a little frustrated with your blog tonight. Wanted to make a comment on but couldn’t find the history to review what I liked. How do you get to older posts. Also, when I clicked on recent posts, it goes to the home page. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Great is the Lord!

    I’m quite practical myself, so I enjoy reading posts about specific ways to help. It would also be interesting to read about others who are very involved in helping orphans, which could spark new ideas for readers to get involved. So for instance, Lizzie, who blogs at raises money through a cycling fundraiser, and selling “sponsor bracelets”, and uses the funds to sponsor a child through Compassion International. Sharing our own stories of how God is using us, or what He is teaching us, is a great way to encourage others.
