    The Healing Apology Formula - or How Not to Say "Sorry"

    Helena lived through a war in Croatia, ended in a refugee camp, and became a nun at 15, committing to a life of celibacy, simplicity, and poverty. She believed that she could stop the war if she purified her heart.

    She couldn't stop the war...but she could stop the war in her head.

    Today, she specializes in ending wars in our hearts, especially in our marriages. Helena passionately supports women in their quest for truth, authenticity, and fulfilling relationships. She helps you love your life, and your man, in a peaceful and delicious way.

    5 Conversations to Help Aging Parents (or Yourself)

    Whether you’re the adult child or the aging parent, being prepared can make getting older a lot easier on everyone.  Having important conversations is the first step and it’s never too early to start. 

    For the adult child, helping an aging parent can be overwhelming, confusing and lonely.  There’s a lot to know and manage. Kim and Mike Barnes, co-founders of Parenting Aging Parents, are navigating this stage of life and building an online community of support for other adult children. Kim and Mike share five conversations you need to have so you’re ready when a crisis comes.

    If you’re an adult child or have adult children, this presentation can open the door to discussions that can help you navigate the push-pull that caregiving can cause physically, mentally, emotionally and financially.

    About Our Speakers:


    Kim & Mike Barnes have each spent more than 30 years on TV. Kim was a news anchor/reporter and Mike was a sportscaster. As Barnes Team Media, they work with executives, entrepreneurs, speakers and small business owners who want to improve their on-camera presence for video, virtual presentations and media interviews.

    But they’re also empty nesters. Their two kids are recent college graduates and their parents are in their 80’s. Now these award-winning journalists are using their professional and personal experiences to support adult children caring for aging parents.

    They launched Parenting Aging Parents in 2021 to help others trying to help their parents. Parenting Aging Parents provides content, connection and community so caregivers don’t feel alone and have the information they need to navigate this challenging time.

    They have a website with dozens of expert interviews and they lead a private Facebook group with about 4000 members. They like to say, “We’re all in this together!”

    Safe in Austin Rescue Ranch

    Saving the lives of our animals and healing the hearts of those who share in those life experiences.  Providing a safe place to gain confidence and understanding through unconditional love shown by over 180 animals.

    About Our Speaker:


    Hi my name is Karen Shives, I am the Secretary with Safe In Austin Rescue Ranch and happen to be the mother of Jamie Wallace-Griner, founder of Safe In Austin.

    My husband and I retired 5 years ago and for the first 3 years lived on property so we could help Jamie with the animals, but most importantly to be close to our grandchildren and family.  Because of the need of a Barn we decided to move on to our son’s property which is only a mile and ½ from the Ranch. 

    I like to tell people when you book a Tour with a Volunteer and you get me…I am the bonus, as I usually tell stories of “behind the scenes” of how things started.
