Tension to Tenderness

March 28 @ 2:00 pm

This event has been cancelled. Our apologies.

The mother/adult daughter relationship can be difficult even though they may love each other.  Laurie Newkirk and her mother Marlou Newkirk had their issues rise to the point that 12 years ago Laura co-founded a website  that focuses on healing this dynamic relationship.  The site has gained an international following  and won many awards.  Mothers and daughters have responded from all over the world expressing surprise and gratitude to find out they were not alone in their struggles.  Laurie & Marlou will share how they healed their relationship & discuss strategies that have helped them and others.  Topics will include handling criticism, advice giving, boundaries, humor and finding forgiveness.

As the co-founder of, Laurie has appeared on radio and TV talk shows, taught workshops and received numerous awards for her writing.  Marlou has a doctorate in education from Columbia University & recently won two CT Press Club awards.  Their advice was recently featured in Bedford magazine.
