The Art of Living is a series of seminars on the art of creating a home where families thrive. The home is a place where one’s individuality is nurtured and loved, and where one learns to work and care for others. The home provides an environment where family members develop and mature humanly and spiritually.
The Art of Living combines classes, demonstrations and hands-on experiences, giving women the skills they need to care for their family with confidence and artistry.
The Art of Living mission is to promote the true value and dignity of the work in the home. In-person and in-home coaching and instruction help you provide gracious living in your home.
