He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Outback America

What is Outback?
Outback America is about building, restoring and strengthening relationships. The weekend experience is designed to give parents and teens from age 12 a practical strategy for daily living, focusing on their relationship with God, their family, friends, church and community.

Kevin and I had the opportunity to attend Outback last month in Mobile,AL and I must say it was one of the BEST things we did for our marriage.(Outback has a program set up for married couples as well) 2 of the teen girls from SLAM! and their mom and grandmother stepped out of their comfort zones and attended outback this weekend. You may remember me blogging about the girls here and here. We have grown very close and fond of this family. They have NO IDEA what to expect because we did not tell them a thing. My husband encouraged them to take this time to invest in their relationships among one another. Please keep this family in your prayers. We hear that BIG things have already begin to happen amongst the grandmother and daughter.
