What to expect in the course
Navigating Difficult Family Relationships During a Faith Transition is a previously recorded webinar I did in March 2021 on how to navigate life when experiencing a faith transition. Either as the one having a faith change, or loving someone who is experiencing a faith transition.
While these are questions about specific or personal experiences that I received previous to this recording, I cover many different situations related to communication, boundaries and remaining true to yourself.
This course could be important for you, if you feel you are experiencing a faith transition, feel stuck in a part of your transition and are unsure how to move through it. Even if you’re a member or have friends who are going through a faith transition, this course could give all parties insight into how others can navigate their communication. If you need ideas on how to set boundaries, define values or communicate change, this course will offer insight into all of that.
