Christians today are confronted with many contrary voices on issues of gender, self, and relationship. Join us at Biola University’s Thrive meeting as Empower International president Carrie Miles shares some of what she has learned about the Bible’s surprising answers to these dilemmas in her work in Africa—and about their applicability in the United States.

Created to Belong: How to Transform Our Broken Beginnings and Build Belonging

June 4, 12 – 5; and June 5, 10 – 6

$40 for materials, breaks, and lunch on June 5

Scholarships available

Based on attachment theory, Created to Belong is designed to help caregivers of at-risk children cope with their special needs. Human infants are hardwired neurologically to connect to an attachment figure. This horizontal attachment to our primary caregiver is meant to reflect the vertical attachment relationship we were created to have with God. When this happens poorly, it affects our ability to trust God, have empathy for others, and develop a sense of right and wrong. Understanding this human attachment not only allows us to transform broken beginnings, it equips us to have a deeper and more intimate relationship with God.

Healing from Trauma

June 6, 10 – 6

$30 for materials, breaks, and lunch

Scholarships available

Healing from Trauma CAN happen. Sometimes God miraculously heals instantaneously. More often, however God uses other people to help in the healing process.This seminar looks at some of the most effective ways to help with that healing, whether for others or for ourselves.

Instructor: Linda Ikeda, RN, LMFC and director of Created to Belong, Empower International Ministries. A practitioner with many years of experience helping foster families, she has taught Created to Belong and Healing from Trauma widely in both the United States and Africa.

Location: Trinity United Presbyterian Church, 13922 Prospect Ave, Santa Ana. Fellowship Hall, room 503. Please email to reserve your spot.
