MARRIAGE & PARENTING WORKSHOPS
FamilyWorks! Ministries offers free workshops that invite people an opportunity to pause and reflect on their personal relationships in life. These workshops are often for strengthening marriage relationships and sharpening parenting skills, but can also help anyone who wants to build or maintain healthy resilient relationships.
Why? Because We Want Your Story to be a Story of Breakthrough and Not a Story of Breakdown!
Our Workshop speakers and facilitator are MA, Doctoral-level, or professional experts packing in lots of great information into a convenient two-hour format. Whether you are brand new to parenthood, newlyweds, been married a while and need a ‘tune up” , preparing for a family of your own one day, or you just want to know how to support a struggling friend – please, joins us for any of these opportunities.
