In August, Family Honor had the privilege of exhibiting at the Catholic Scripture Study International conference in Charlotte, North Carolina. Over 200 people from 33 states and Canada assembled to hear inspiring talks by world-renown Catholic speakers at the Catholic Scripture Study International Bible Conference. We were able to share with them information about our parent-child chastity education programs as well as our online course, “The Truth and Meaning of Sexuality, Love & Family.”
Also in August, we attended the National Association of Catholic Family Life Ministers (NACFLM) conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Approximately 750 Family Life Ministers from all over the United States gathered at Marquette University for this three-day conference. Family Honor was a first-time exhibitor at the conference and we were also asked to give a workshop. Vincent Weaver, Family Honor’s Director of Programs and Training and his lovely wife (and Family Honor Master Presenter) Jeannie, drove to Milwaukee with their family to help me give this workshop. Vincent and Jeannie demonstrated two skits from our “Real Love & Real Life” program.
Because of our participation at the NACFLM conference, we met some great people from the Diocese of Rockford, Illinois and their leaders are now discerning a Family Honor affiliate. The Diocese of Rockford has invited Family Honor representatives to provide two workshops at an upcoming one-day, family-centered, marriage-building conference. I will be offering an informational workshop about Family Honor and Steve and Pat Notestine, Family Honor presenters from the Archdiocese of St. Louis, will be presenting a workshop about our newly-designed “Leading & Loving” program!
