ENJOY THE RIDE! Our retreat this year is based on The Cure & Parents by Thrall, Lynch & McNicol of TrueFace.org. Each family will receive a free copy of the book.
Here's an excerpt from the introduction, “There is a cruel joke that somehow slipped in under the
door. It goes like this: These
children we waited and longed for have now become our opponents. Opponents we love, but ones we now have to
It’s not supposed to be this way. God gave us children to enjoy endlessly. And for them to be able to enjoy us for an
entire lifetime. . . .
Parents, far from something to endure until your kids
finally leave the house, we believe parenting can be the trip of a lifetime. So friends, enjoy the ride.”
Special Guests - Roger & Carol Shepherd
Roger and Carol Shepherd have been ministering to couples and families most of their married life. They were both born into believing families and met at a small Christian college in Oklahoma. They have been married for almost 49 years, have five married children and 9 grandchildren.
Roger and Carol joined the staff of The Navigators in 1972 and ministered at Penn State University until 1983. Roger studied under Larry Crabb and Dan Allender at Grace Seminary and graduated in 1988 with a masters degree in biblical counseling. That same year Roger and Carol and family relocated to Orlando Florida where they began Florida Counseling Foundation. Carol works at the counseling center as a certified life coach and Roger spends one day a week supervising counseling students at Reformed Theological Seminary, which is one of his favorite things to do. Roger and Carol offer intensive counseling weekends for couples in crisis and for those wanting marriage enrichment.
They came in contact with John Lynch and the Grace Message thirteen years ago and have been involved with the Trueface team (who wrote The Cure and Parents) the past ten years.
Roger and Carol find deep joy in their ministry to couples and families and in their 9 grandchildren. It's true--GRACE CHANGES EVERYTHING!!!
