Empowered to Connect

Welcome to Empowered to Connect!


Welcome to Empowered to Connect!  It is our joy and privilege to serve you.

You may be wondering – what is Empowered to Connect?  Simply put, it is our way of bringing you a wide variety of tools and resources that we believe will help you create and strengthen healthy connections with your children.  It is also our hope that church-based adoption, foster care and orphan ministries, as well as others who are committed to serving children and strengthening families, will find these tools and resources particularly helpful as they do the work they have been called to.

Empowered to Connect is a collaboration among us (Dr. Karyn Purvis and Michael & Amy Monroe).  It consists of a rich online library of resources that includes articles as well as audio and video presentations covering a variety of topics.  Over the coming weeks and months we will also be adding new resources to the online library via this blog.  Therefore, we encourage you to subscribe to receive an email (or our RSS feed) each time we add new content to the resource library.  And later this year we will be offering a study guide designed to highlight and examine the biblical principles that serve as the foundation for the philosophy and the interventions detailed in The Connected Child.

We thank you for allowing us to be part of your journey.  It is our deepest hope that you will find joy and purpose along the way.


Karyn, Michael & Amy
