We really appreciated our time at the Young Families Retreat because we really began building and nurturing the so-called village that will help us raise our daughter and her peers. Parenting needs to be a reflective and intentional process now more than ever so we appreciated the opportunity to consider the character traits we hope to nurture in our children amidst this performance-based society, and how we can also learn from our children and understand them more deeply. We had a great time bonding with our fellow parents and hearing the wisdom and insights from parents who are further along in their journey. Witnessing our children play together in their sweet and silly ways was also very entertaining! Parenthood has so far been one of the most exciting, joyful, challenging, and rewarding journeys we have ever embarked on and we are grateful for the love and support in this process from our St. Tim’s community.
