Authors Knows What to Expect When Hurricane Harvey Moves on And Recovery Process Begins

  • “I learned how much I didn’t know about how volunteers swarm in like a team of busy bees to help distressed folks overcome unbearable challenges. I soon realized those on the receiving side or giving side of the story need to know,” says Haueisen.
  • Authors Kathy Haueisen and Carol Flores have personal and professional experience with tropical storms and hurricanes that have roared through the Gulf Coast region

    9 September, 2017 – Houston, TX- Author Kathryn Haueisen lives in Houston. Houston is underwater. She’s been through this experience before with Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike. She knows something about what her community is going to go through for the next – who knows how long. That is why she helped former Bishop Paul Blom write God in the Raging Waters and then co-authored A Ready Hope: Effective Disaster Ministry for Congregations with her daughter Carol Flores. Flores began a career in disaster response several months after Katrina made landfall. She worked with Lutheran Social Services of the South, InterFaith Ministries, and Texas Health and Human Services.

    Both books describe the phenomenal influx of dollars and volunteers who show up on the scene to start the very long road to recovery. “I learned how much I didn’t know about how volunteers swarm in like a team of busy bees to help distressed folks overcome unbearable challenges. I soon realized those on the receiving side or giving side of the story need to know,” says Haueisen.

    Each disaster is unique. As they say in the Disaster Response world, “If you’ve seen one disaster, you’ve seen one disaster.” There are some predictable events that will happen. It is already happening in Houston.  While the rain was still coming down and the water levels all over town were still rising the predictable disaster response cycle began unfolding.

    People are eager to deliver used clothing and household goods but there isn’t yet a system in place to store and distribute them. The media has run out of new things to report so they repeat the same stories repeatedly – sticking microphones in faces of families desperate to find a missing pet or comfort a distraught child. National organizations and leaders second-guess decisions made by local leaders under the most trying of times.

    “We’ve seen this before. Disasters bring out the very best we have to offer our fellow citizens – and sadly, we also attract the worst of the opportunists who gouge and deceive desperate people,” said Haueisen.

    Both books – A Ready Hope: Effective Disaster Ministry for Congregations and God in the Raging Waters are available at Amazon.com. A portion of sales from either book will be donated to disaster relief organizations responding to Hurricane Harvey.

    Kathryn Haueisen, author, is a retired Lutheran pastor who worked with a disaster response agency for six months following three previous hurricane-related disasters in Texas and Louisiana.

    HOUSTON SPEAKER DALLAS LOUIS SPEAKS ABOUT IMPACT OF DIVORCE ON CHILDREN

  • My position is about your behavior and choosing to be an adult.
  • Summary: Dallas Louis makes it her mission to educate people about the impact of divorce on children and families

    Houston, TX – Having grown up in two homes after her parents divorced, Dallas Louis makes it her mission to educate people about the impact of divorce on children. Using the analogy of how broken crayons can still color, this Houston author, speaker and blogger, also mom and wife, helps children of divorce see the opportunity to live into their full adult potential.

    During the Easter season, we often focus on beautiful colored eggs as a reminder of the new life that emerged from the tomb after the death of Christ. However, eggs can’t fulfill their purpose until they are cracked open. Whether their ultimate destination is to release a newborn chick or to become food, they don’t fulfill that function until they are cracked. Likewise, while we might enjoy the box full of new brightly colored crayons, crayons don’t fulfill their purpose of making art until they are used. In being used, they are often broken.

    Using the analogy of broken crayons that still color, Louis shares her thoughts about helping children when their parents divorce. She talks about how children are often broken by divorce, but like broken crayons are sometimes melted together, children are sometimes merged into new combinations of families. The melted-together crayons offer new coloring option. So too the divorce and re-marriage of birth parents can form new combinations of families that can enrich a child’s life.

    Divorce is one of life’s more painful experiences for everyone involved. In-laws struggle to know how or if to stay connected to former sons and daughters-in-law. Friends wonder if they should stay in touch with one or the other or neither of their divorced friends. But the real adjustment falls to the children who love both parents and have to shuffle back and forth between them. It is a time of many conflicting and complicated emotions and the situation really can’t be resolved easily. Louis knows this all to well, which is why she longs to engage others in conversations at retreats, church groups, spiritual gatherings or conferences.  “This is something I know. I can help them,” Louis said.

     “In fact, both my husband and I are products of divorce.  Between the both of us, we have had NINE parental influences through the years.  That total includes each time a parent remarried and divorced.  That did not leave us in a love triangle, it left us in a tangled, shapeless mess.”

    After she shared her perspective in a blog she discovered,  “The reader response was incredible to where they said ‘finally somebody is calling everybody out.’ My position is about your behavior and choosing to be an adult. My father used me deplorably against my mother. I don’t understand using children as pawns. It was all over the place when my parents divorced,” Louis said.

    Relying on her faith, for both she and her husband, Jeff, is how they continue to grow as a family with their three children.

    “God holds everything and is the center of all of it,” Louis said. “I’m fallen and sinful. My God is bigger than my sin and has my marriage in the palm of his hand. Your faith can get you through every day and even the worst days of your life.”
