Front Porch Parenting Workshop 2016

Guest speakers David and Lisa Fraze will give parents and grandparents encouragement and practical tips on how to nurture a solid foundation of faith in their children (or grandchildren). Front Porch Parenting is a way of thought more than a step-by-step guide to parenting kids in today’s world. Loaded with practical ideas (often arising from the failures seen from our own front porch) this seminar will take parents and grandparents through a new-old way of parenting children. Yes, it does take a village to raise a child. This seminar is about inviting that village onto your front porch for assistance. You won’t want to miss it!
