The Sharing Love Abundantly Online Study is Coming Your Way

Discover how caregiving families can use the love languages during the Sharing Love Abundantly online study. Check out the details here.

The Sharing Love Abundantly online study for caregiving families is set to kick off January 2021 with a bang! Registration for this free, 4 week study is already underway with the help of my friends at Key Ministry.

We’ll meet on Zoom for an hour every Thursday in January at 11 AM Central Standard Time.

During the first half of each session we’ll dig into the book, discussing ways to use the love languages with every person in a caregiving family–spouses, kids with special needs, typical siblings. We’ll also examine how the love languages can help extended family members, medical professionals, and educators support our families effectively.

Each week special guests will join us for the second half of each meeting. The guests are family members who shared their experiences in Sharing Love Abundantly in Special Needs Families. Here’s who will be joining us:

January 7: Joe and Cindi Ferrini
January 14: Matt and Ginny Mooney
January 21: Colleen Swindoll-Thompson
January 28: Stephen “Doc” Hunsley

I can’t wait for you to meet these friends, listen to their wisdom, ask your questions, laugh together, and maybe even cry together.

The study is free, but you will need a copy of Sharing Love Abundantly in Special Needs Families to participate fully. You also need to register beforehand by visiting this link. After you register, you’ll receive an email with more details.

    I learned so many new things about being support both physically and spiritually for those with disabilities by listening to Colleen’s podcasts. With my upcoming surgery in January, can I still be a part of this study? I’m going to be recovering for six to eight weeks. Sound amazing!
