Culture & Family

ART OF LIVING
Partner Program

The mission of Art of Living is to promote the true value and dignity of the work in the home. Seminars combine classes, demonstrations and hands-on experiences, giving women the skills they need to care for their family with confidence and artistry.

FAMILY ENRICHMENT
Partner Program

Family Enrichment provides programs for couples geared to strengthening the family and supporting the husband and wife by fostering learning opportunities within an atmosphere of friendship.

Family Enrichment courses are built on the case-study method. Cases are drawn from rich, complex family situations that reveal the significance of productive relationships among family members.​

GRANDMOTHER'S EXCHANGE

The Grandmother's Exchange was started by two women who wanted to get to know other grandmothers and share friendship.​ The group meets in the Buffalo Grove area and surrounding communities, depending on which home will be hosting.

For more information, please contact Loreto Wille at mloretow@sbcglobal.net or Carol Knox at c.knox@hotmail.com

May you seek Christ. May you find Christ. May you love Christ.
