I was asked by a friend would I be a stewart and help out at a care for the family event . http://www.careforthefamily.org.uk/ I have been to several events and attended one of their courses quite a while ago about parenting teens – It was while my teens where quite young and alot of it I have found helpful over the last year or two , especially the importance of keeping the lines of communication open .
Thursday night was called Motherhood- the rollercoaster years , They had a couple of good speakers including Jean Gibson who works for Care for the family – I had just finished reading her book called Seasons of womanhood which I can really reccomend. Its about different women at different stages of their life and there faith as they continues life journey. You can find out about Jean here – http://jeangibson.co.uk/
Also Moya Brennan was singing and sharing her story which was awesome who some will know from Clannad. I will save some of her music for Monday and it was so special to hear some of the meaning behind her songs http://www.moyabrennan.com/
All in all a worthwhile evening
