Event Highlight: 2018 Parenting Conference

On February 11th, 2018 GFC hosted the “Expectations Vs Reality: Making Sense of Parenting” Conference featuring speakers Sissy Goff and David Thomas. This event was for parents of kids ages 0 – 18, and was a fun way to give parents insight on topics like the relational world of kids, how to talk to your kids about sex, and taming the technology monster that is so prevalent in all parents lives these days!

See below for some highlights, testimonies and pictures of the event!
