TAPESTRY MINISTRIES, October 20-21, Irving, Texas
Tapestry’s 2017 Conference registration recently opened and we encourage you to check it out! It is geared to serve adoptive families and professionals at a very reasonable price. The event will be held October 20 and 21 at Irving Bible Church in Irving, Texas. This year’s conference will feature Dr. Curt Thompson, author of The Anatomy of the Soul and The Soul of Shame.
Tapestry Ministries is an organization that provides adoptive families with a multitude of resources and support and is closely tied with Empowered to Connect® and Trust-Based Relational Intervention®. You can find more information about them HERE, and this is a summary from their website:
The focus at Tapestry is primarily three fold: to connect, encourage and equip. Tapestry provides a loving, supportive and authentic community that encourages families along their adoption journey. It has been our experience that communities such as ours are a unique resource at each stage of the adoption or foster journey, and are particularly valuable to families during the difficult times. For those families, we offer our prayers, our love and support, our friendship and the collective wisdom and insight of those who have successfully navigated similar paths.
Kim Cunningham, Director of America World’s Texas office, has attended the conference before, and had this to say:
The adoption conference is a great way to stay educated and to stay connected. Last year included a worship and praise time before the classes. It was amazing to look around and see so many praising and seeking the Lord. The conference normally holds several different breakout sessions allowing you to choose which topic most applies to you. I personally enjoyed the sensory processing session, which was a very hands-on experience.
Perhaps it is time to consider a fall weekend getaway to enjoy some great information and a little Texas hospitality! Early bird registration for the 2017 Tapestry Conference is NOW OPEN. Register HERE and use TAPCON20EB for 20% off.
