Brunch Event with Dr. Heather Malin

“Our Greatest Gift for Our Children”

How to help them Uncover Their Purpose In Life.

4 X 3 Dr Heather Malin.jpg

Join Dr. Malin for an interactive discussion regarding these questions—and learn how prioritizing purpose means raising expectations for all our children, but not in a narrow band of academic skills, says Malin. “Instead, we expect them to create nothing less than a life of purpose for themselves by developing their personal strengths and values, reflecting on what it means to be a good person, engaging deeply with challenging questions and problems in the world, and envisioning, planning for, and acting on a future that expresses their personal vision of success."

During this event, we’ll explore . . .

How can we as parents help our children to fulfill their purpose in life?


Are we good role models for demonstrating a life lived with purpose?


Why your relationship with your children may be challenged as you steer them towards their purpose?
