When my wife and I were going through the adoption process, getting our “Hague Hours” required watching a number of videos with Dr. Karyn Purvis. We didn’t know Karyn then, but immediately knew she was offering wisdom that’d prove vital in our adoption journey. That was certainly the case, even more than we knew, and it’s now a double pleasure to not only work with Karyn but also count her a much-valued friend. I’ve also come to believe that her work is more critical now than ever. As more and more families adopt children “from hard places” (as Karyn puts it), they need special insight and grace to nurture wounded souls toward wholeness.
Karyn will be teaching a variety of workshops at Summit VIII in May. But to draw upon her insights sooner, and at a particularly in-depth level, consider the Empowered to Connect Conferences. The next one will be in Dallas on February 17-18, 2012, at Irving Bible Church. This two-day conference features two days of insights and learning from Dr.Purvis. The conference is designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders and professionals better understand how to connect with ‘children from hard places’ in order to help them heal and become all that God desires for them to be.
Registration for the Dallas ETC Conference is open and the “early bird” registration price end tomorrow! Visit www.etcconference.org for more details and to register online.
