Free Resource Regarding TCK’s (Third Culture Kids)

Our missionary children face their own major challenges as they follow us back and forth to the fields of service.  I know because Sheri and I raised 5 of these TCKs.  All are doing well now as adults and have adjusted to their lives, marriages, and families in a good way.  Third culture experience has only served to broaden and strengthen their lives and personalities.


However as parents, midstream in missionary life with our kids, we’re not always sure how they are doing.  Here’s a free resource that recently popped up I want you to know about and put into your digital libraries for reference and study if you like.

This book, “Raising Resilient MKs: Resources for Caregivers, Parents and Teachers,” is edited by Joyce Bowers and provides 500 pages of invaluable material for those involved with TCKs in any way.

The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) published this book in 1998 and has graciously given permission to make it available free of charge. The book is available to download as .doc, .pdf, or .zip files for your computer and as .mobi or .epub files for your Kindle or Nook. You can’t beat the price. Find it at…
