Marsha Wittig Shares Masterful Work

Marsha Wittig shared with the teachers at faculty meeting this week a presentation on “Caring for Students Who are Experiencing a Parental Separation.”  This presentation was a partial fulfillment of the requirements of earning her masters degree.  Marsha shared a definition of stress and then made us aware of the signs of stress to watch for in our students.  Finally she gave useful strategies for helping those students and their families through the difficult time.  

Marsha’s especially focused her research on the difficulties families face when a father or mother is deployed.  I really appreciated the information since this is and will be a separation many of Trinity’s families will be facing.   Marsha’s witness to the power of Jesus Christ in difficult times reminded me that we have a resource that isn’t offer through a government agency or through typical medical helps.  Thank God for the kind of comfort and strength given through Jesus.

Marsha gave our a summary of her presentation to the faculty, if you are interested in receiving a copy of this pamphlet please email dwittig@lava.net
