\n Now I Know SOME of YOU are like ....why would I want to attend This Program?\n

\n
\n That's a GREAT Question! \;
\n
\n Here's the Answer: \;

\n
\n How many of you hated the homes you grew up in ? How many of you had friends who suffered in homes that were broken and T OTALLY dysfunctional? Maybe this was Your Life? Or Maybe your parents or f amily members "\; 'presented' to the world\, a picture of This HAP PY Home\,"\; \;but in reality you say to Yourself\, "\;if people really \;KNEW \;the Truth"\;?
\n
\n  \;
\n
\n On the Flip side....
\n
\n  \;
\n
\n How many of YOU Say or have said to Yourselves\, &q uot\;I'm Never Gonna Get Married!!!"\; Or Say\, "\;I wish I could be in a relationship with someone who gets me!"\; Or "\;When I get married\, I'm gonna do DIFFERENT than my parents?"\; How many of you wonder about finding that special someone meant for YOU?!
\n
\ n  \;
\n
\n I know I have said\, many of these state ments....But How can YOU Change the Picture of \;YOUR&n bsp\;Life\, or influence the Life of family members\, if you don' t understand the knowledge and experience of another?! \;
\n \n  \;
\n
\n  \;
\n
\n The Bib le Says\, A wise man learns from someone else's mistake\, but a foolish ma n does not listen to counsel (a paraphrase) Proverbs 12:15.
\n
\n  \;
\n
\n  \;
\n
\n At this C onference\, \;Scheduled for July 20-22\, 2017 \; \;WE \;will be tackling these Questions t hrough the Presenters we have Brought together from ALL OVER THE USA.
\n
\n  \;
\n

\n
\n  \;
\n
\n  \;
\n
\n Look the truth is the church is NOT Perfect.  \;Neither is the World for that matter\, because We are ALL sinful fallen Human Beings\, \;BUT \;We have a \ ;Truth \;From the Gospel that Tells Us  \;
\n
\n  \;

\n

\n < span style="font-family: Arial\, Helvetica\, sans-serif\; font-size: 16px\ ;">The conference is geared towards Family Life Professionals (students an d community members) including but not limited to Therapists\, Counselors\ , Social Workers\, Family Practice Nurses\, Pastors\, Chaplains and indivi duals who work with or desire to further their knowledge and practical app lication of family ministry in the areas of: Youth &\; Young Adult\, Fa mily Life and Health Ministry leaders to name a few. \;

\n

\n It is our hope and prayer that you will find the presentations\, the conversation\, the fellowship and the food enrichi ng and satisfying. Above all\, we all want to have an experience of the lo ve of God.
