social, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being across the lifespan. This seminar will provide

The things which you have learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.”

Phillippians 4:9

Living with a spouse who has a mental illness is not an easy task. It can be especially
difficult and confusing if your spouse does not acknowledge there is an issue. Communication,
spouse support, and self-care are essential for all marriages to be successful and happy, and even
more critical when mental illness is present.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward.

Psalms 127:3

Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Matthew 18:3-6

The purpose of this seminar is to review the impact of sexual abuse on children, possible

In all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility.

Titus 2:7

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

Mark 10:45

In the family, fathers and mothers should ever present before their children the
example they wish to be imitated. They should manifest one to the other a tender
respect in word, and look, and action. They should make it manifest that the Holy
Spirit is controlling them, by representing to their children the character of Jesus
Christ. The powers of imitation are strong; and in childhood and youth, when this faculty is most active, a perfect pattern should be set before the young. Children should have confidence in their parents, and thus take in the lessons they would inculcate.”
