In marriage, parenting and life in general we have constant choices to make. Lauren’s message guides her audience through the process of making choices, valuing relationships and seeking God’s best for our lives. Both insightful and practical, this message can be tailored to fit any audience.
All of us have wanted to offer comfort and support to someone experiencing the intense pain of loss, but we simply don't know what to say to someone facing divorce, the death of a child, cancer, the loss of a job, infertility, and estranged or rebellious child, a chronic illness, and the other tough issues of life. The Art of Helping is presented with those times in mind. Find out the best way to express your feeling in a positive, uplifting manner that a hurting person will understand and appreciate.
Lauren touches a felt need we all experience - wanting to help a hurting person, but not knowing what to say or do. She equips her audience to be an expression of God’s comfort and love with practical tools and creative forms of support. Based on her book, The Art of Helping, Lauren shares poignant personal stories that enable us to be part of the healing process.
Through personal stories, anecdotes, and vignettes—like how the "blue plate" became special—the Littauers show how ordinary items gain importance and grow in sentimental value over time. These warm and wonderful ladies show you how your family can enjoy shared memories and create traditions that will stand the test of time. What family possessions will you, your children, and your grandchildren "make special"?
Lauren has traveled the country in conjunction helping speakers put their best image forward. In her booklet, Speaker Stage Appearance - You Only Have One Opportunity to Make a Good First Impression, Lauren reminds you of the tips that she may have shared with you at a CLASSeminar or private consultation. It is a valuable resource for anyone who steps in front of an audience.
Whatever loss experience your child is facing right now, your reaction, guidance, and understanding are vital for his/her emotional heath and healing. When you invest your time in your children's lives they will know you care. You can make a difference in their life. While you can never undo the loss they face, you can hold their hand and walk the path with them providing your love and support.
Losing a loved one can be an intensely isolating experience. At times you may feel as if you are the only person who has ever known such anguish. Helping you find hope again is our mission in Open to Hope: Inspirational Stories of Healing After Loss. Whether your loved one died last week or last decade, we know you can benefit from the wisdom of those who have negotiated the long days and nights of the grief journey. That s why we created the Open to Hope Foundation, a content-rich, heart-based online forum to help people cope with their pain, heal their grief, and begin investing in their futures. Compiled in this book are entries written by more than one hundred contributors to the foundation s website. By reading about their experiences, may you find similar paths to healing. It is our heartfelt hope that as you read, you will think, If they can make it, so can I. We too have grieved deeply and know what it s like to experience dark days with no light to lead us. Whenever you run out of hope and can t find the light to guide you, we invite you to lean on our hope until you find your own.
