Our Slowness Series was a Success!
The Family Center would like to thank everyone associated with
our most recent series, The Practice of Slowness. This series was
a great success, and we are grateful for our wonderful panel of
speakers, including Dr. Doris Kutz-Compton, Steve Komorek,
Christina Kienstra, Madeleine Lane, Laurie Spellmeyer,
and Kristin Wright. Each speaker brought a unique focus to a
specific area of life, which heightened our awareness on how to
cultivate intentional slowness into our lives. Together, this series
reached 66 people in the community, and inspired slowness for a
healthy lifestyle. Thank you again for everyone involved in this
