Hello Coaches and Friends,
The Family Life Coaching Association annual conference committee would like to extend our greetings to you and our sincere hopes that you and your family are well. As I have thought on the many messages surrounding COVID-19, I am reminded of one of my favorite Parables- Good or Bad, Hard to Say. The Chinese Parable is about a farmer and the uncertainty of events that occur in his life. It is a great example to me of the wisdom tradition of non-judgement about life’s many ups and downs.
I am excited to announce that we are moving onward, upward, and forward with plans for this years’ annual conference. Though we may not be gathering in person, we are excited to connect with one another. The conference will be Thursday June 4th- Friday June 5th. We have an amazing group of presenters with a wide variety of topics to share. Can I admit that I don’t think I could have orchestrated a greater array of content had I tried.
Please spread the word with your friends, peers, and clients. My goal is for this online format to enable more people to get to know us and to attend our conference than had we met in person- this will be our “Good”.
Thank you all for your love, patience, prayers, and commitment to families in your communities.
