We had a dream…
That dream was to develop a framework that would build a safety rail at the top of the emotional cliff into anxiety, despair, depression and hopelessness rather than acting as an ambulance at the bottom.
My deep concern for the amount (the figures are troubling) of young people suffering from poor emotional health and lack of emotional resilience has evolved into the My Life Rulz resources for families, schools, churches and communities.
Paraclete Productions Pty. Ltd. was set up as the Company that My Life Rulz operates under in 2010 in Australia and also has a company operating in New Zealand. Paraclete Productions is partnering with family, education and church sectors to optimize and support the development of children’s emotional health.
“What does it mean that the Holy Spirit is our Paraclete?”
After Jesus announced to His disciples that He would be leaving them soon, He then gave them a statement of great encouragement: “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counsellor to be with you forever—the Spirit of Truth” (John 14:16–17).
The Greek word translated “Comforter” or “Counselor” (as found in John 14:16, 26; 15:26; and 16:7) is parakletos. This form of the word is unquestionably passive and properly means “one called to the side of another”; the word carries a secondary notion concerning the purpose of the calling alongside: to counsel or support the one who needs it.
