Regaining Balance

After all the (wonderful) chaos of Christmas, your family may be wondering, “How do we get back to normal?” We’re with you on that and want to help your family start off on the right foot in 2018 as you try to regain some balance for your checking account, priorities, health, and schedule. Here are some great resources for you to help you get started:

Parents Group Special Event Our own Julie Alexander will be leading a session on clarifying your family’s priorities in 2018! This special event will take place in the Parlor on January 7th from 5:30-6:30 pm (but feel free to grab dinner from the Congregation House and join us at 5 pm) and will utilize vision boards as a way to clarify priorities. You can find out more about Julie and her work in health and wellness here.

Checking Account – Financial Peace University If you’re scared to look at your bank statements right now, it might be a good idea to check out Financial Peace University. Phil & Erica Batten will be leading this class at DCPC for 8 weeks starting on January 8th or you can check Financial Peace University out on your own.
