Renew your vision for a thriving family.
Todays families face many competing demands and challenges. How can we create a home that honors the best of where we come from and embraces the emerging challenges and opportunities of life in the 21st century? It’s easy to get stuck reacting to the unhelpful patterns. Or it’s tempting to mirror the default values of safety, security, self-focus and material success that have characterized our culture. We know that simplistic, rule-based and one-size fits all approaches won’t work. Now more than ever, we need a vision for family that is creative, intentional, soulful and globally aware.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you have children, hope to have children, parent solo or with a partner, your household can be a place of BELONGING, where each person feels safe, cared for and loved AND a place of BECOMING, where you help one another develop who you are for the good of the world.

Join authors Mark and Lisa Scandrette for this practical workshop based on their latest book, Belonging and Becoming: Creating A Thriving Family Culture. Together we will explore tools and practices that can help your family thrive.

Parenting Couple: $50, includes book Belonging & Becoming & simple lunch saturday 
Parenting Single: $25, includes book Belonging & Becoming & simple lunch saturday 

Since this is our first time offering an opportunity like this, please don't let the cost or time commitment detour you. Invest in yourself, your children, grandchildren, or soon to be children. Limited sponsorship is available, contact Courtney Lowry for more info, // 503-232-5155.
•• Childcare on your own, and since its a workshop and learning opportunity for parents, grandparents, and soon to be parents, we ask that no children be present unless they are infant(s).  

Mark and Lisa’s vision for family life is both challenging and inspiring, and Aaron and I are so thankful to have learned from their example over the years of our friendship. This book is a gift: intelligent and brave, prophetic and grounded. I recommend it for any parent who wants to be wiser, more soulful, and more imaginative in their parenting which is all of us, right?
—Shauna Niequist, author of Bread & Wine and Present Over Perfect
Mark and Lisa did not just write this book, THEY HAVE LIVED IT— and they make room for various expressions of the values-based, thoughtful approach to parenting we all aspire to. Our world, our neighborhoods and our souls will be the richer for the reading and practice of these pages.

— Nancy Ortberg, author of Looking for God
