Beverly Buncher’s Four Foundations for Creating a Healthy Family are based on the idea that one person can make a positive difference in the life of his or her family. These same principles apply to families needing small tweaks as well as to families facing huge challenges. Bev will discuss how you can make your life and family experience better from the inside out. By learning about the Four Foundations©, you will find yourself becoming a pivotal part of the solution. It’s not about taking over another person’s responsibilities, Bev says, but about finding freedom in taking on your own responsibilities in a new, more enlightened way. Join us to learn how you can experience increasing levels of peace and purpose in your life and family.

Beverly’s Coaching Suggestion
As you begin to work with the four foundations (self care, being a loving person, setting boundaries, getting support), you will find parts that are easy and natural for you and parts that are harder. Rather than struggle and worry about the parts that are more difficult, look for your small and large successes in any of the four areas and celebrate them! Keep a daily journal in which you write down every success you have in putting your new habits into place. These could be anything from flossing your teeth more regularly to allowing your child to tie his own shoes instead of jumping in quickly to help to giving your teen firm, yet loving boundaries within which to operate, even when he or she pushes back. Think of the four foundations as muscles that will grow stronger with practice and everyday look for opportunities to try a new one and watch its effects take root in your life.
