Thanks for stopping by A Family Place. I enjoy working with families, and sharing the power of music with them. Kindermusik provides this outlet for me. This blog will allow me to share thoughts and ideas that can help families in their journey.

Navigating a Tragedy

The news from Newtown Connecticut has stirred many emotions in me over the past several days.  Because I have children, teach children, and love families this has been a difficult matter to comprehend.  I avoided watching television, and honestly didn't want to talk about it for the first 24 hours.  I suppose that would be denial.

Since I don't watch much television, I get most of my news via Twitter accounts that I follow.  That may seem odd, but that allows me to choose what I read.  We live in the informational (overload) age, so I decided to pass along a few of my favorite links concerning this horrific event.

I hope you will find comfort and encouragement through these posts.
