His story changed the world: Jesus -- born to Mary and Joseph, worshiped as Savior by the Magi and the shepherds who had found him through divine guidance. We do not dispute the significance of their part in Jesus' story. We marvel at their obedience. We sing songs recounting their trust and their faith. But if we dare allow ourselves to peer just a bit deeper into the pages of scripture, extending just beyond the edges of the nativity story, we find the embodiment of patience and faithfulness -- Simeon and Anna, a prophet and a prophetess, who waited for the arrival of the Messiah with an unwavering expectation. It is a story that reminds us that a hope placed in God does not disappoint. In seven scenes, "The Promise Fulfilled" presents a simple drama, intertwining the familiar details of the Christmas story with the steadfast hope of Simeon and Anna. Drawing upon the gospel accounts of Matthew and Luke and using extended scripture readings, "The Promise Fulfilled" invites cast and audience members to marvel at the events surrounding Christ's birth, taking us into the expected while challenging us to look beyond the well-told storyline found within the walls of the nativity. Simple to learn and powerful to present, this short drama will allow youth groups and adult drama teams to develop a rich understanding of the events leading up to Christ's birth. Easily adaptable for Bible studies and children's lessons, "The Promise Fulfilled" offers a fresh perspective to a story that has been changing hearts for over 2,000 years, ushering us into the Advent season with a subtle and powerful proclamation: a transformed world requires an enduring faithfulness anchored in Christian love.

This book is for anyone who is or has been interested in the commitment of foster parenting. I would first like to commend you on your passion to mold the life of a young person who may have not been dealt a fair hand. Whether you are a long-time foster parent with decades of experience under your belt, or are just curious about the possibility of taking on this internally rewarding cause, we are all connected in the pursuit of something far greater than ourselves. Your interest in this type of work reveals that you already have the first and greatest key to your success: compassion. This choice will cause you to live outside of your own little world and you will forever be changed. If you love what you're doing and you allow that same love to flood the lives of those who have never experienced it, you will never be forgotten. Your love will live forever; this I guarantee you.What many don't know is that my mother was a flight risk foster child who bounced around from home to home. She passed through and went AWOL from where I have worked for the past five years. This closeness to the heart is what ultimately inspired me to develop my passion and choose this work. My passion is now a testament to the redeeming power of a life forever changed by Mr. Hackett and foster parents like you. My mother never had a birthday or knew a home she didn't run from until you bridged the gap and made her feel loved. Your dedication reached further into generations than you ever could have imagined. It's time your commitment is recognized as I eagerly await the days grown children and their children return to me on solid ground. It is my intent and life's purpose to pass on what has and continues to work for me. I seek to help others achieve success to an even greater degree than myself. I owe it to you real life super-heroes to let this out and be 100% authentic in the struggles. Lastly, this is for the countless youth who have changed my life for the better. To those who revealed in me things I didn't know about myself. To those who created growth and love inside my heart that will never pass away. I will tell them what it is your fellow brothers and sisters have cried out in need for. I will reveal to them the treasure in you. For all of this, I am eternally grateful.
