"Lay Readers at St. Mattress: Why Family is the Most Important Church They'll Ever Attend"
With Kathleen Fischer
7-8:30 p.m. in the Parlor
In November the Parent Ministry invites you to join family and parenting coach Kathleen Fischer for the third of three evening sessions. She will discuss basic spiritual practices (charity, hospitality, quiet time and prayer, confession, and forgiveness) and apply those themes within the context of family life. The parent of three lively adults, Kathleen is also a registered nurse with a master’s degree in education. Her area of expertise is adolescent social, emotional, sexual, and relational development. She combines her passion for adolescent development with observation and research on families and kids, and has written two books, Bringing Our Boys Through the Second Decade and Simple But NOT Easy: Regaining Balance in Our Family Life. Childcare will be provided with registration. For questions, please email Hannah Fisher.
