STUDENTS & ANXIETY | Equipping Parents

We live in an anxious age. However, throughout scripture, we are told not to be anxious. As parents, how do we equip our children with the tools to manage their anxieties? In our first “Equipping Parents for Life” seminar, Dr. Karri Hawley will identify the causes of anxiety in students, ways to identify the difference between normal or concerning behaviors, and ways parents can help their children manage stress.

When:
Tuesday, October 22nd (Evening: 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.)
Wednesday, October 23rd (Morning: 8:15 – 9:45 a.m.)

Where:
Kathie Thompson Library on the Lower Campus

Parents can use this link to sign up to attend.

KINDNESS MATTERS

October is Bullying Awareness Month, and GRACE is celebrating by encouraging KINDNESS! Last Friday, lower campus students had a blast spreading kindness through the Kindness in Chalk event. Make sure to ask your student what they are doing to spread kindness to those around them.
