Many seniors will eventually need to move to an assisted living facility because they can no longer take care of themselves. It will likely fall on their adult children to identify the signs that indicate it’s time for a change, so it’s important they know what to look out for.
Recognizing when a senior would be safer and happier in an assisted living facility doesn’t have to be a traumatic event, and I’d like to help ease some of the stress that comes with this big life change.
Would you be open to allowing me to write an article on this topic for you to share on your site? I’ll talk about what behaviors or factors indicate it’s time to consider the move to assisted living as well as how to have a sensitive and productive conversation about it. I’ll also feature your website in the article.
Thank you for your consideration!
P.S. Don’t want to hear from me going forward? Please reply and let me know!

By God’s grace 🙏 and heart of Prayers Kevin And I were hit on all sides leaving the house. We felt the nervousness and strife of the enemies unseen. We fought bad driving and internal pressure By enemy Darts and attack. After visiting tent city once we headed home. I pulled into Buckmans carwash to take inventory. We were exhausted by mental trauma. I said Kevin I think we’re done today. But let’s pray. God in a still small voice said go back to tent city. We arrived to see no one. Then put a little food on table. I saw someone peeking thru a curtain. I invited him out for ☕ coffee. It led to prayer . Then baptism and sinner prayer. Johnathan Lee was converted with laughter then tears.
Pray and intercede for his discipleship training. To be God’s anointed wàrrior for the Harvest.
Keep me and Kevin in prayer The ministry lacks many things But the greatest IAM in the heart keeps us Fishing.

Reverend Jt was sent by God after a 15 day fast. No food. To highways band byways. To set the homeless Outcast free from The World, Flesh and devil’s. I do 6/7 days a week. After I suffered financial and physical shipwreck. I give food clothing coffee and lunches out everyday. With water baptism and excorcism prayer to set the troubled souls free. Christ in my heart by faith. Ephesians 3:17 To God be the Glory. Giving Grace and liberty by His Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:17
Went to Rehab and after months of being off the corner holding a sign Needs all our prayers. She is very nice to me and needs grace by God to be prefected and we’ll equipped to beat her demons or familiar Spirits.
We at Sabbath Keepers Fellowship & Prison Ministry know that you in the body of Messiah have many skills and gifts. This year we badly need your prayers and help. What we have been unable to do, you probably can.
Every year we purchase thousands of dollars worth of matzah, horseradish, grape juice, and pay high printing costs for the Haggadah (Passover Seder service booklet) we send to our inmate members in prison for their Passover celebrations. We have tried many ways to lower the cost of these items, with little success. We are hoping one you, our brothers and sisters out there, can help us do better.
Currently, we are paying these unit prices for each item:
~Box of Matzah (16oz./14 pieces) – $1.66 ~Grape Juice (10 oz. plastic) – $0.60 ~Horseradish Packet (single serving) – $0.22 ~Haggadah Booklet (8.5”x11” folded) – $1.60 ~Two Gallon Plastic Bag (zip-lock) – $0.12
Each package includes: one box of matzah, two bottles of juice, one horseradish packet, and one Haggadah, plus a bag for each and packaging materials. The Haggadah is 20 pages of plain white paper and black ink only, with an additional #110 weight heavy cover sheet, which folded in half and stapled is a 42 page booklet.
Our shipping expenses equal 60% of our total cost per inmate for the packages, which is just insane. It brings the net cost of the packages to an average of $12 each. We have a few volunteers here in Texas who deliver to a few local prisons, but most are going out by USPS. The containers range from a single package up to nearly a hundred of them, depending on the needs and requests of individual prisons. If anyone knows how we can save on shipping, or is willing to deliver a few of them for us, please let us know.
We know that someone out there is aware of or can help us find better prices than these. If you know of someplace or someone that can save us money on these items, we will be able to send out more packages to needy inmates this year. Or, if you have no contacts to help with this, give it a try on your own. We have tried our hardest to improve these numbers, and have failed. We have tried diligently to solicit more donations, but folks are just not opening their wallets this year, so it seems our only avenue is to get some savings.
Finally, if any of you wish to just send matzah, juice or packing materials to us here directly at Sabbath Keepers Fellowship & Prison Ministry, please do! Or, maybe a few of you would like to sponsor an entire prison Passover celebration. Just call us and we will discuss that with you. We sure do need the help this year, and our deadlines for package assembly and shipping are looming quickly. We need to get this done now, or it won’t get done.
You can call us at: (903) 489-1930
Or, send cash, check, money order or Passover supplies to:
What would you do? There are nearly two million people in US jails and prisons. About 3,000 of those men and women are members of Sabbath Keepers Fellowship & Prison Ministry. We minister to all prisoners who come to us and keep the seventh-day Sabbath. If you or a loved one were in prison, and it was Passover, you would probably contact SKF for help in keeping the festival.
Among many other services to Sabbath-keeping inmates, we operate this nation’s oldest and largest prison Passover Package Program. It was created in 2011 and is designed to enable Sabbath and festival observant inmates across the USA to keep just the most basic of scriptural commands concerning Passover while in prison. Over the last few years, we have provided nearly 11,000 Passover packages to hundreds of prisons across the nation. But, we could and should have done many more than that. It is only for lack of funds that we cannot provide these packages for all inmates of our faith. And the program is in trouble this year.
In one respect, it is going great – we have tons of requests for our packages, which contain matzah, juice, bitter herb and a Seder booklet. In another respect, it is going quite poorly – at present, we only have $1,000 of the $12,000 necessary to fill the requests of all our inmate members who have asked for one, and we need to make our final purchase of supplies within the next four weeks.
But why should you give to charity, and especially one that serves prisoners? Because it is a commandment of our Father in heaven (Leviticus 25:35, Deuteronomy 15:7-8). Is that the only reason? As if we need another! In fact, there is another reason. It is righteousness to you. In Hebrew, the word for righteousness is “Tzedek.” A similar word is used of a righteous person, which is “Tzadik.” The common Hebrew word for the giving of charity is “Tzedekah.” In Hebrew thought, the giving of charity is one of the highest forms of righteousness. In His Sermon on the Mount, our Messiah agrees and had this to say about righteousness:
“Let your light so shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven… For I say to you, that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.”
He also spoke specifically about the necessity of everyone ministering to those in prison, telling us that if we neglect our incarcerated brothers and sisters, it will not go well for us in the end:
“He shall then also say to those on the left hand, ‘Go away from Me, accursed ones, into the everlasting fire prepared for the adversary and his messengers, for I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, was naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ Then they also shall answer Him, saying, ‘Master, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not serve You?’ Then He shall answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, in so far as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into everlasting life.”
Admittedly, the giving of charity to convicted criminals is not a very glorious task. It seems most people want nothing to do with it or them. There are many other more palatable expressions of giving, and so most people tend to give their tzedekah to more tasteful and high profile causes and charities. That is precisely the reason we need your help. The more acceptable charities are very well funded, and we struggle for every cent we get – which usually ends up not being enough to help all those in need of our services. Those we minister to are not some unknown people in far off countries with ways and religions foreign to you. They are your own broken and wayward brethren right here in the USA who have failed in life, and yet now are trying their best to mend their ways in order to serve our Father in heaven. We must not turn our backs on them and fail them! Our best and most perfect example in this is our blessed Messiah who ate with the tax collectors and sinners, who said that He came to heal the sick and not the healthy. He said, “Freely you have received, freely give!” If you do not help these poor brethren of ours it is highly unlikely that anyone else will.
It is SKF’s goal to make sure no Sabbath-keeping prisoner is forgotten at Passover. We cannot do this without your help. It is our hope that we can bring every one of our brothers and sisters in prison to our Father’s Passover table and, ultimately, into fellowship and His kingdom. Will you please join with us and help us reach that goal? Everything necessary is in place to do this service for the thousands of our brethren behind bars who have requested a Passover Package so they can fulfill the commandments of that observance, and all it needs is for you and other generous followers of Messiah to open your hearts and pocketbooks, and give so they can do so.

There is another Sabbath Keepers Fellowship that you have probably never met – SabbathKeepersFellowship.org. We are in the process of joining forces with SabbathKeepersFellowship.com in order to better serve all of our members and to extend our reach to all of you who keep the seventh day Sabbath. These two ministries have somewhat different functions but very similar beliefs, and what one lacks the other seems to have. We think it will be a very diverse but excellent fit. We hope you will think so, too. Let us know, okay?
By way of introduction, this post will simply tell you something about SabbathKeepersFellowship.org . We began as a simple prison ministry in 1996, but have evolved into much more, and we want to share that with you. Later posts will bring teaching, testimony, scripture, and all sorts of interesting information that we think you will find to be of great value. We are glad to be a part of this exciting new venture, and we also look forward to meeting all of you.
Sabbath Keepers Fellowship & Prison Ministry is a non-denominational fellowship of the children of YHWH Most High whose purpose is to unite its members to serve and obey Him in all things; to minister to the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of the poor and needy prisoner, both during incarceration and upon release from prison; and to minister to the needs of their families and friends. It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported solely by the grace of our Creator and by the charitable donations, contributions and tithes of its friends and of the general public. While SKF serves all Sabbath keepers and has a diverse range of services, the prison ministry is the centerpiece of Sabbath Keepers Fellowship and is the focus of its charitable operations. It provides volunteers, books, Sacred Name Scriptures, concordances, calendars, various worship items such as the tallith (prayer shawl), tallith katan and kippah, as well as festival and Sabbath matzah (bread) and juice, to prison inmates and to their families. Our Passover Package program, through which the minimum Passover Seder items as listed in Scripture are provided to thousands of inmates across the nation, is the most popular of all the programs offered by the ministry. Sabbath Keepers Fellowship also sponsors and holds services on the 7th day Sabbath in diverse places both inside the prisons and out each week, as is made possible by prison authorities, facilitated by its volunteers, and as desired by its followers and friends. The goals and mission of Sabbath Keepers Fellowship are further achieved through its re-entry initiative which attempts to provide some faith-based housing, life-skills education, and emotional and spiritual support for it’s prison members after their release, as is made possible through your charitable giving. All proceeds from charitable donations to SKF are used for the purposes of it’s prison ministry and none of it’s staff takes a salary nor compensation of any kind. All of the ministry’s materials and programs are provided to prisoners free of charge as mandated in the Scriptures in Matthew 10:8, “…freely you have received, freely give.” You can be absolutely sure that when you make a donation to SKF, every penny goes to the people who need it most – our inmate members and their families. And, all of your donations are fully tax deductible.
Sabbath Keepers Fellowship & Prison Ministry seeks to bring the living water of the Word and Spirit of YHWH Almighty to all who desire it as expressed in Isaiah 55:1, “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come buy and eat. Come buy wine and milk without money and without cost.” In obedience to His Son Yehoshua Messiah’s words of love, our creed is: “Then the righteous will answer Him saying, ‘Master, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and take you in, or naked and clothe you? Or when did we see you sick or in prison and come to you?’ And the King will answer and say unto them, ’Assuredly, I say unto you, inasmuch as you did it to the least of these my brethren, you did it to Me.”
Sabbath Keepers Fellowship was founded in 1996 as a home fellowship and study group having an outreach ministry to believers in prison. Donations and contributions were utilized primarily to supply bibles and teaching materials to inmates who could not otherwise afford or obtain them. At that time the ministry was quite small and localized. By 1999, the ministry’s operations were expanded and additional programs added. Sabbath Keepers boasted an ever-growing inmate membership, a monthly newsletter, book and bible giveaways, a Pen-Pal program, a national Passover Package program added in 2011, support of Sabbath worship services on various prison units in multiple states, and even some limited personal visitation to inmates by SKF volunteers. Now, through the grace of the Most-High, and because of a great need and demand in the prisons at this time, Sabbath Keepers has flourished and grown into a nationwide ministry serving over 3,000 inmates and their families in 41 states, a home-service and festival venue open to all, as well as facilitating an ever-growing social-media community of faith separate from our prison ministry efforts.
Sabbath Keepers Fellowship offers its services and support to those who seek to observe the Scriptural commandments without regard to particular denominations, race, creed, color or doctrines. We have done so for well over two decades and many thousands of men and women – your brothers and sisters in faith – have benefited through these efforts. Our goal is simply to help as many people of our faith as we can in the time we have allotted to us, and then someday be among those who, when confronted by our Master on the last day, will hear Him say, ”Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, ‘Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was hungry and you gave me meat; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you took me in; I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you visited me; I was in prison and you came unto me’. ” (Matt.25:34-36)
We are pleased to be a part of Sabbath Keepers Fellowship’s new and expanded presence here, and we encourage you to take advantage of all we have to offer on our website and in our social media groups.
God is good all the time. And you know what? All the time, God is good. We are all together and have not forgotten that no matter what we are going through, God is still on His Throne. This has been somewhat of a rough week, but we are committed to rejoicing and being glad in the Lord always. We believe each day, even this past Tuesday, is a day the Lord has made. For some reason, some very evil men and women have decided we need some extra blessing – Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.Rejoice and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in Heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. We are all doing well. Our resolve to…

April 28, 2017 – “LIBERTY OF CONSCIENCE THREATENED! NATURAL DISASTERS ARE COMING WHICH WILL RESULT IN A NATIONAL SUNDAY (WORSHIP) LAW WILL BE THE MARK OF THE BEAST! A $1000.00 REWARD FOR MISSING BIBLE TEXT.” These shocking statements have startled millions of readers that picked up the USA Today on April 14th, or the Washington Times on April 12th and 14th, 2017. The ad offers a thousand dollars for a missing Bible text that will prove the sacredness of the 7th–day Sabbath was transferred to Sunday, the first day of the week, either by Jesus or one of His apostles.
The Eternal Gospel Church in West Palm Beach, FL is responsible for the ads. Their toll-free phone number is 1-866-7TH-DAY-2
Their website www.eternalgospel.com describes this ministry as founded in 1992 by Seventh-day Adventist believers who are preparing for Christ’s Second Coming.

The Omer period is the time between the First Shabbat after Passover (meaning the Shabbat [7th day Sabbath, not holiday/high day Shabbat] and Shavuot. See Leviticus 23:15-16.

No man has made me believe in God and I didn’t learn that Jesus Christ was God from the Bible. I had a supernatural conversation before I ever read the Bible or ever stepped in to a church. I don’t have a blind faith iv seen the living God I heard the voice of Angle’s I know that God is real. You can think I am crazyer than a Fox but I’m here to testify by the truth of the spirit of God to you who do not believe that the glory of God may be made manifest in you. Amen.
Lee BromleyI don’t think that. There are to many people that follow the straight and narrow road. because they want to be in the norm. I don’t so prey for me and my son and send us the light to see what you have to find our God.
Inayatullah KhanAllah(God) Almighty is the creator of the universe and every thing and Jesus(Esa peace be upon him) was the prophet of Allah(God) and he is a human like us. But after the emergence of Islam and Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) now Muhammad is the prophet for whole universe and Islam is the real relegion.
Lisa BuchananWe are all alohim because we are sons of the almighty. As it is written in psalms, jesus asked in John, I believe, how you can call it blasphemy when he says he is the son of God? Isn’t the word God breathed? How can you alter it and in islam say that he is not?
Inayatullah KhanThose who dont beleive in God are wrong. This huge universe was not created itself. Some one’s exist who created and who manage this system. And for the guidance of people guide(prophet) is required. Plz study islam , the comprehensive and real relegion of the world.
Remo MoIn Islam, Jesus is the titles ‘Word of God’ and ‘Spirit of God’. Yet, he is still not God. Jesus preached about 1 God – monotheism. There is no way he was preaching about everyone being the actual One True God.
Lisa BuchananIt’s really there! We are God’s children thus we are all are gods. Created in God’s likeness and image. The jewish psalms and every language of the bible says it. Alohim, elohim, lower case gods.

Remo Moso great scholars in theology have missed something that a schmuck like you found on some random website redicecreations.com via google. you must think of yourself as some enlightened fellow for having read that nonsense lol. ive read albert pikes writings, and while it is luciferian, it in no way corroborates the bullshit vatican/jesuit story. youre a gullible fool.
Joey CurcioMore insults I see. How interesting, My experience and education in the art of debate tells me that personal attacks and insults are the hallmark of desperation. Apparently I have struck a real nerve here. To address your point it is absolutely possible and apparently the case here. Often times “scholars” ascertain their knowledge base primarily from widely accepted sources of information and reject fringe sources for all of the reasons you just did and that is foolish ignorance in its highest form. Real Truth is never easy to ascertain and is often only found hidden within sources that the mainstream rejects and considers unbelievable. It is not at all out of the realm of possibility that those debates that you have witnessed were contested by individuals who are unaware of who Alberto Rivera was let alone what he told us. I do not at all expect you to accept these truths as that would cause you have to re-think everything you once knew and to consider that despite your pride and extreme arrogance you may be wrong but I did expect you to react with insults and personal attacks. So you are presenting yourself in the exact fashion that I expected. In your next response you will likely turn up the insults and personal attacks another notch. And you are precisely wrong – in Pike’s letter to Mazzini he unequivocally states that Islam will be the sword used to destroy modern Christianity which is one of Rivera’s assertions in his writings.
