Good families don’t happen by chance. Effective parenting is an art that requires faith, heart, humor, patience, good  communication, organization skills, and support  from  other families.
 Come and enjoy  hearing  and meeting our speakers. They  will share their experience on what makes for  strong marriages and wholesome family life.
