Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. Scriptures teach a life of “holiness without which no man shall see the Lord”. By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command: “Be ye holy, for I am holy”. Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit.

CAL FIRE Funds Projects to Restore the Health and
Resiliency of California’s Forests
Sacramento – The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) today announced that the Department has awarded over $63 million in grants for 16 landscape-scale, regionally-based projects aimed at promoting healthy and resilient forests that protect and enhance forest carbon sequestration. The grants were awarded by CAL FIRE’s Forest Health Program to affect private, state, and federal forestlands in 13 California counties.
CAL FIRE’s Forest Health program restores California’s forestlands through a suite of active management approaches including thinning of overly dense and, in some cases, pest-impacted forests; use of prescribed fire for ecological restoration and to reduce hazardous fuel loads; reforestation of forests diminished by fire, drought, insects and disease; and capacity support for forest management, wood processing and biomass utilization. Thirteen of the recently awarded grants will treat approximately 150,000 acres of private and public lands. Three of the grants will establish conservation easements under CAL FIRE’s Forest Legacy Program. These grants will protect more than 40,000 acres of forestland in Napa, Placer and Siskiyou counties from urban and agricultural development. Projects will sequester carbon through reforestation and increased growth and yield of existing vegetation and may reduce future wildfire emissions as compared to a business-as-usual scenario.
“These landscape-level Forest Health projects complement the immediate actions to prevent and mitigate wildfires that CAL FIRE proposed in its recent “45-Day Report” to Governor Gavin Newsom. Together, our investments will help make our forests more resilient, reducing the risk of wildlife and the resulting loss of carbon, while also improving ecosystem health,” said Angie Lottes, CAL FIRE’s Assistant Deputy Director for Climate and Energy.
The CAL FIRE Forest Health program is part of California Climate Investments (CCI), a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing GHG emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment-particularly in disadvantaged communities. Within the next month, CAL FIRE expects to award and additional $37 million for Fire Prevention projects and $2.5 million for scientific research into forest health issues. Both programs are also part of the California Climate Investments suite of programs. California Air Resources Board released the 2019 CCI Annual Report to the California State Legislature yesterday.
April is Child Abuse Awareness Month and the Child Abuse Prevention Council of Amador is bringing awareness to the notion that all children of Amador County deserve to be raised in a safe, secure, and loving home.
Pinwheels for Prevention is a nationwide public awareness campaign that puts a new spin on prevention. The pinwheel has come to serve as the national symbol of the great childhoods we want for all children. The campaign uses community activities and public policies to prioritize
prevention right from the start, making sure child abuse and neglect never occur.
Throughout April, planting pinwheel gardens in honor of children in communities demonstrates how we can all support children and promote ways to make healthy and happy childhoods.
In Amador there will be 1700 pinwheels total - representing the number of children age 0-5 in Amador County ~ acknowledging that the youngest children are our most vulnerable.
Visit Our Local Pinwheel Gardens:
Pine Grove Park
The corner of Preston Avenue/Sutter Lane in Ione
Little Oak Learning Center at the Jackson Rancheria
Health & Human Services building, Conductor Blvd., in Sutter Creek
Pinwheels symbolize a happy, healthy childhood. Every child deserves a good one!

Mini-Grants Now Available!
We are excited to announce that funding is available for Family Strengthening mini-grant proposals for the 2018-19 fiscal year. Mini-grants will be awarded up to $2,000. Funding is provided by the Amador Child Abuse Prevention Council (ACAPC).
Grants are available for qualified organizations and agencies to provide Family Strengthening programs within the County of Amador.
Family Strengthening is the premise that children do well when families do well, and that families do well when they live in supportive communities. Enhancing connections within families, and between families, and the institutions that affect them, result in better outcomes for children and their families.
Mini-Grant applications may be submitted to ACAPC at any time throughout the 2018-19 fiscal year, however grant reviews and awards will occur bi-monthly.
A Trauma-Informed Book Club!
Here is a great way to become trauma-informed and build your knowledge around adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and resiliency.
Inspired by an ACEs Connection idea, we are following along, sharing with you one book each month that focuses on the issues of trauma and toxic stress in children and in our communities. Read along with us, and use the discussion questions to further the conversation around this timely and important topic. Join us on our Facebook page to discuss the follow-up questions each month for a more in-depth understanding of how trauma, ACEs, and resiliency are inter-related and impact our community.
For April, we have Managing Emotional Mayhem: The Five Steps for Self-Regulation, by Dr. Becky A. Bailey.
Managing Emotional Mayhem expresses different ways a parent, adult or caretaker might handle their emotions while a child is misbehaving, throwing a tantrum, back talking or simply just not listening. While taking into consideration previous beliefs, this book is meant to teach self-regulation and different learning skills to both child and adult, in order to help the child onto a better path.
What is self-regulation?
What are some reasons as to why a child could be misbehaving?
Do you think it is important for a child and their guardian to have a strong relationship when the child is young?
What are 2 things a teacher could learn from this book and incorporate into their classroom?
Please feel free to join in on a conversation about this book
