It’s often interesting to read the stories of people’s lives, especially those who have made a name for themselves because of an achievement or special skill. You might even find yourself wishing you could be like them or have their fame. But too often you learn that their childhood was nothing to be envied – either marked by abuse or neglect from family members. Many of our personality traits – good and bad – can be attributed to our family of origin. Does that mean that we are held back in life, or propelled forward to achieve greatness, because of our family DNA? Consider that many world changers come from the worst family situations imaginable. So what does that mean for us? How do we move forward given all of our family’s joys, encouragements, as well as hurts and disappointments? This Sunday, Bert and Sheila Thomson will share principles and personal insights on how to look at our past, our present, and future family dynamics. Whether you are single, married, divorced or a parent, you won’t want to miss this week’s talk. See you at Innis Town Hall @10:30 a.m.
