November 9th, 2013 De-”Hollywooding” Divorce, guest speaker Alan Wood
Sometimes we give up when we should be taking a step back, taking a deep breath and asking where we need to acknowledge where we’ve fallen short. Hollywood makes it easy to believe that divorce is the answer to all of our problems. Join us as Attorney Alan Wood shares with us the not-so-glamorous realities of the divorce process.
January 18, 2014 Pathways to Responsible Fatherhood – Presented in partnership with NW Marriage Institute
FamilyWorks! Ministries is proud to be partnering with NW Marriage Institute as they call all fathers to rise to the calling of fatherhood. Come hear a challenging message for fathers to stand in the gap and take the reins of their too often neglected role in the family.
We all know we should eat better for our health and for the health of our children and grandchildren. However, we often hear conflicting messages on what we should eat which then leads us to giving up. Join us as Cymbrie Schooler presents practical ways for families to set up habits of healthy eating and explains why nutrition is a vital part of our families’ overall well being. Lunch will be served at noon and free childcare will be provided.
May 24th, 2014 - Introduction to Filial Therapy, Using play to Connect with your Child
What we want most with our children is meaningful connection. To know that they have heard us and we have heard them. It is not easy to foster this kind of connection in a culture of microwave meals and video games. Join us as we take an inside look into Filial Therapy, a fantastic tool by which parents can intentionally connect with their children using their own language; the language of play. Lunch will be served at noon and free childcare will be provided.
