The Joys and Trials of Parenting as an Experiencer

The gifts of a spiritually transformative experience profoundly change the way a person lives their life and, therefore, also profoundly affects their choices, words, and actions as a parent and family member.  There are unique dimensions and unexpected challenges. Join our panelists as they talk about incredible moments of joy and moments of trial that are distinctive to families living with someone who is deeply connected to the other side. Have you wondered what other experiencers are going through as parents?  Are you looking for a moment of camaraderie? In this webinar you will hear from parents, children, a spouse, and someone who had a very special moment speaking to his non-verbal autistic daughter in Heaven. Listen in as Kimberly Clark-Sharp, Yvonne Sneeden, Rob Gentile, and Elke Macartney open their hearts to share their experiences with you.

Plus, participate in our first polls! Share your thoughts with the panelists through interactive polling questions written by the panelists! Tell us your questions through the Q&A feature. The host will share your questions with the panelists throughout the event so be sure to stay until the end to hear all the answers.
