Parenting Your Kids with Grace

Dear Mom and Dad, or just Mom, or just Dad, or Mom and sister, you get it J  

Don’t become a grandparent who says “I wish I had known that when my children were young!”   

Come join Sandra Hall and MaryAnn Hibbard (experienced Moms and Grandmothers) to discuss the book “Parenting Your Kids with Grace” by Catholic family therapist and parent Gregory Popcak with his wife, Lisa. In it they share practical, faith-filled , and humorous techniques on raising faithful children. As a group we will also share what has worked well for us, or maybe, not-so-much. Together we will encourage and uplift each other.

 Sessions will be at Our Lady of Grace Parish in Sanford and geared towards those with children that are 0-10 years old.

Next Session:  Thursday, May 9

Time:          6:00 – 7:15pm. 

Cost:           $11.00

We will meet once per month for 8 months (2nd Thursday of the month). A book is needed.
