THE POWER OF PRESENCE in the time of COVID-19
May 1, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
At a time when “normal” continues to be redefined daily, it is important to embrace those aspects of ourselves and our world that endure. The Patterson Foundation and The Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading enters each day focused on our five constants: Caring, Connecting, Collaborating, Contributing, and Creating. In a demonstration of these five constants, we hope you will join us for THE POWER OF PRESENCE in the time of COVID-19.
In The Power of Presence, Joy Thomas Moore explores seven pillars of presence: heart, faith, mind, courage, financial freedom, values, and connectedness, which all parents can use to positively influence their children.
Using compelling stories from women who have been there and practical advice on everything from savings accounts to mindfulness, this book is a compassionate look at what it takes to raise great kids, even in less than ideal circumstances.
Families across the country are adapting to the evolving changes to daily life during the pandemic. Join author Joy Thomas Moore for a discussion on how the seven pillars of presence can help guide families through these challenging times.
