We invite you to Moms Connected, a program for mothers of teens and tweens. We serve as a ministry to encourage, support and build connections with other women also in the stage of teen-age parenting. Our morning includes informal social time, breakfast, an informative speaker and discussion groups. Join us for a relaxing morning and insightful wisdom on guiding your teen during this important stage of parenting!

The Stoopid Years: Sticking with Teens through Wonky Hormones, Suspect Behavior and Painful Indifference
Julie Barnhill
Thursday, September 24

Barnhill-Julie200Ah, yes, the five year, 60-months stage of teens and parents can do a number on one’s objectivity, confidence and family relationships – theirs and ours! Join Julie Barnhill as she couples personal mom/teen experience (180 months total thus far) with raw honesty, developmental insights and much needed humor. We will grasp a basic developmental overview of our teen’s emotions and overall makeup – as well as ours and why they clash. Learn why we need to let our teens ‘off the hook’ – as well as ourselves, and identify the ‘stoopid’ ruts of communication that happen between parents and teens. Julie will equip us to show up emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically for our teens – despite ‘stoopid’ behavior on both our parts!
