March 31-Apr 1

We are hosting Cary & Annalisa Smith for a parenting workshop on Friday, March 31 from 6-9 pm and Saturday, April 1 from 9 am - 12 pm.

During the conference, Cary will help us as parents reflect on fear within ourselves and within our families. He'll also offer numerous practical steps of how to tend to such fear and build resilience. Together we will gain a better understanding of anxiety, why your story matters as you walk this journey with your kids, and how to give your family a larger vision that guides both parents and kids. Cary's wife, Annalisa, will also bring wisdom from afar, joining parts of the conference remotely. 

Friday, March 31, 6-9 pm

Saturday, April 1, 9 am-12 pm

COST: $10 per person (childcare will not be provided)
