Serving as a police officer or another first responder has its share of heartache and difficulty. There is an increase in PTSD among those who serve our communities in this way. Thursday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, 31 year Law Enforcement Veteran, Sgt. Mike McGrew joins us to offer hope and encouragement for those who serve and helps all of us know how we can help.
Summer 2020 is a summer unlike any other, that's for sure, but there's still plenty of fun to be had. After months of being cooped up inside, families are more desperate than ever to get out of the house and enjoy all that summer has to offer.
But, with many travel plans and destinations still not an option, how can families take full advantage of this summer together? Thursday, on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Plugged In Director and dad to 3, Adam Holz, has you covered with the top 5 things to do as a family this summer.
From his 31-year career as a police officer and sergeant, co-founder and executive director Sgt. Mike McGrew knows first hand the dramatic impact of working the front lines as a first responder. He faced his own struggles with post traumatic stress and other self-destructive behaviors, after years of dealing with the crimes he encountered while working as a police officer. He also experienced the pain of losing a child to cancer. Through Sgt. McGrew's own personal and spiritual journey of discovering healing from post-traumatic stress, he co-founded 911 At Ease International. Sgt McGrew also published his personal story in A Higher Call to Duty.
Adam Holz is a senior associate editor for Plugged In, a Focus on the Family publication designed to shine light on the entertainment industry, giving families the essential tools they need to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which they live. He also writes for Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse magazine and has been a Boundless contributor.
