Strengthening the Family

This looks like a great symposium. My brother is involved with it, and I think it is a good voice in favor of families. It's also inexpensive.  Have a look:

Students for the Family invites you to attend Strengthening the Family: Engaging Issues with Courage and Civility on October 28th and 29that the Provo Marriott Hotel! (See full event schedule here.)  Lloyd D. Newell, Ph.D., voice of the oldest continuous nationwide network radio broadcast in America, Music and the Spoken Word, will offer the keynote address.  Register today!

·   Network with students, young professionals, scholars, and others interested in family issues
·   Support and participate in family-centered student scholarship
·   Learn how to effectively strengthen your own family and community

With pre-registration, the cost is $7 for students (enter promo code "student") and $12 for non-students.  To get a better feel for this unique event, watch a short documentary about last year's conference. Contact with questions.

Interested in helping out?  Sign up to volunteer at!
