Creating a Strong Family Culture
Taught by Charlotte Barnes**
With so many voices competing for the hearts and minds of our family members today, there is an ever-increasing need to root our family in their amazing past. When our children know from whom they come, they know who they are, and they don’t have to look in unpleasant places for identity. Learn what you can do, say, and display that will help your household create a strong culture of family history.
If you can’t make those times we will record the webinar and have it available for one week after the live presentation.
