Parent Symposium

This is a one day gathering for parents of all kinds - adoptive, foster, and biological - who desire to be encouraged and supported.

Are you Feeling This Way?

Parenting is filled with paradoxes. Some days seem to last forever and then at other times, a year is over in the blink of an eye. We want our kids to simultaneously grow up and slow down. We can feel like we have some parts figured out and in other areas, we are completely lost.

Parenting at this moment in history is uniquely challenging with the added challenges and pressures of digital devices, extracurricular activities, and societal discord among the many already existing realities of raising children. There is no easy solution for all of this, but we do know that sharing some space with other parents who are facing similar challenges and may have a different perspective is helpful.
