With our special guest speakerfor our kick-off:
Julie Ziglar Norman
Are you or a loved one still suffering as a result of a
pregnancy that was not carried to term? The loss of an unborn
baby, whether by miscarriage or by choice, is emotionally
devastating and few heal fully without a directed effort
towards that end. Come join Julie Ziglar Norman and step
into a new day. Julie’s unique experience of being raised by
the motivator’s motivator has given her a perspective on life
and work that keeps her audiences laughing, crying, and
taking notes. Continuing her father’s legacy of
encouragement is an honor and a privilege that Julie never
expected or sought, but her willingness to accept the
challenge is inspiring audiences in America and abroad. Her
vibrant style of delivery, her honest and transparent
assessment of life, and her willingness to share intimate
details of personal failures, as well as personal triumphs, has
made her a popular crowd favorite. Her life experience as a
poster child for bad choices enables her to minster to women
seeking to trade a life peppered with guilt and shame,
addiction, failure, fear, regret and anger for a life filled with
love, joy, and peace! Her latest book, Growing Up Ziglar: A
Daughter’s Broken Journey from Heartache to Hope was
released in May of 2012. Julie has shared the platform with
greats like Colin Powell, Rudy Giuliani, President George W.
Bush, Joe Montana, Lou Holtz, Steve Forbes, Sarah Palin,
and many others.
The cost is $7, which includes a meal and materials. Please
reserve your seat by calling the APRC at 512-476-7774 or

Christian Foster Care Orientation & Training
December 13th ~ 6pm-9pm
December 14th ~ 9am– 2pm
at “The Bair Foundation”
8840 Business Park Drive
Austin, TX 78759
The Bair Foundation is a Christian foster care ministry. For more than 45 years, their mission field has been
the sea of lost and lonely children and teens who are currently in the foster care system.
Their goal is simple; to provide these children and teens with a place to call home, a family that cares and the
opportunity to meet a Savior who loves them.
Jesus calls all of us to orphan care in different capacities. Some of us are called to intercede for the orphan,
some to adopt, others to foster. Whichever is your calling, don’t remain inactive.
“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their
affliction and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” - James 1:26-27
