Voices of the Village

Wisdom is defined as the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight. "Voices of the Village" is utilized to showcase wisdom from wise and wonderful parents.

God will never put more on you than you can handle.
Trust in him and he will lead you.

9-Week Parenting on Purpose Video Series by Dr. Bob Barnes
  We all know that children don’t come with instruction manuals, and with today’s barrage of seemingly opposing information and uncharted societal issues, parenting can seem overwhelming. The 9-week Parenting on Purpose Video Series seeks to help parents make sense of all the information, through proven and practical parenting solutions created by Dr. Bob Barnes. Dr. Barnes has a doctorate in counseling and received his education at Maryville College and Florida Atlantic University and he presents seminars and conferences on Parenting and Marriage throughout North America.

Mother/Daughter Tea Party- Recap

Cheers to the end of another successful tea party! Due to the circumstances surrounding Coronavirus, the tea party, while traditionally in-person, was converted into an online event! This was certainly a first in the history of the Cleft of the Rock Foundation, Inc, but we could not be more pleased with the outcome. Despite having guests from all over the nation, and even across the seas, the warm and loving atmosphere made it feel at times that we were all here together. We thank you all so much for participating and sharing your kind and inspiring words!

We plan on hosting next year's Mother/daughter Tea Party on April 25, 2021 at Royal Fiesta in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
