|Guest Speaker: Joshua Roumi, The Three Checking Accounts
Saturday, March 9th at 10:00 a.m.
Here are the key points:
1. Money has a soul (or let's call it energy).
2. What you do not respect will move away from you. What you respect will flow toward you.
3. The respect of money is godly. The love of money is, of course, the opposite.
Most people agree that the number 1 reason for failing relationships is money. Most people also have the "what's the point" attitude about money: "Lets' spend it today because who knows if we will have it tomorrow or in the future."

|Author Speak: Liza L. Hernandez, To Boob, or Not to Boob
Wednesday, March 20th at 11:00 a.m.
Following a breast cancer diagnosis and bilateral mastectomy, I learned to look at life differently. I chose reconstructive surgery with implants, and my new boobs lasted 16 happy years. Then the point came when I had to replace the implants after they became hard and painful.
I researched my options for removing the implants and learned about an aesthetic flat closure procedure. If I chose this option, I wouldn’t have to have any more surgeries in the future. While deciding what to do, I read a quote from the Mary Poppins movie: “Open different doors, you may find a different you there that you never knew was yours. Anything can happen.”
The quote resonated with me, so I followed my heart and said, “Off with the implants!” With this book, I created a guide with practical suggestions for before and after surgery and the first year of healing. I share how I found the right look for me and my new figure, and how I dealt mentally and emotionally with the changes. I still have boobs, just in my unique way.
About the Author:
Liza L. Hernandez went through breast cancer at 37 years old. Shortly after diagnosis, she had a bilateral mastectomy and breast reconstruction, which lasted 16 years. In 2021, at age 54, she had the implants removed and not replaced. She chose a procedure called aesthetic flat closure and figured out how to have breasts without future surgeries.
She is a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, and employee who survived an illness that reshaped her body and life.

|Poetry Writing Workshop with Ellis Elliot, Author of Break in the Field
Wednesday, April 3rd at 3:00 p.m.
“Some stories fill the house of your body,” writes Ellis Elliott in her breath-stealing new collection Break in the Field, and she should know. This gripping, heart wrenching exploration of her inner most thoughts and feelings while caring for her extreme needs stepson, “[whose] brain vessels shattered at birth into a million stars,” are so raw, so deeply forthright, from a place of such compassion, tenderness, and introspection that I found myself tearful many times.
