SPIRITUAL PARENTING WORKSHOPS

Parenting atypical children, those with labels or who are struggling, means trusting and letting go of judgments to allow God’s love to flow through us. It is a journey of forgiveness by learning to parent from love and inner peace instead of fear and worry. We learn that we do not have to fix our children because they are not broken. All we can do is change our mind and see with the eyes of love without fear.

Workshops will explore the following themes:

  • Life is a spiritual classroom
  • Seeing life through your child’s eyes
  • Questioning your fears
  • Surrendering to what is
  • Who would you be without your story?
  • No one fails in this classroom

 

 

Please contact Sally for costs and to schedule a workshop.

WELCOMING All CHILDREN AND YOUTH

Involve Training: The Involve Training includes 15 hours of intensive and comprehensive information and hands-on activities for religious educators, ministers, and lay leaders to help churches become welcoming congregations for all children. The training can be adapted to fit your particular denomination’s needs and goals. It is best planned for groups of churches.

 

Practicing Radical Hospitality: Creating Beloved Community for All Children is a four to six hour workshop based on the Involve Training for faith communities wishing to explore the process of including children with special needs and their families in the life of the congregation.

 

Workshops are based on Sally’s book, Welcoming Children with Special Needs, A Guidebook for Faith Communities, published by the UUA in 2002.

 

Please contact Sally for costs and to schedule a workshop.

 

There are two sets of materials needed for the 15 hour Involve Training. Click here for the Involve Implementation Manual: How to Create a Welcoming Ministry for All Children and Youth in Our Faith CommunitiesClick here for the workshop Handouts.

 

Comments from Workshop Participants

“The workshop was so wonderful and much more interactive than expected.”

“As a volunteer teacher I have never known what to do about disruptive children. Sally’s information on positive behavior techniques are so easy to implement. Not only can I use them in teaching, I can use them with my own children.”

“I am so grateful for the information on teaching to multiple learning styles. I now have some great ideas for keeping all the children engaged in the Sunday’s lesson.”
