In partnership with Greater Tacoma Community Foundation, Coventry Edwards-Pitt will share inspiring lessons from her book Raised Healthy, Wealthy & Wise that will help you take the steps necessary to set your children on the path toward health and happiness.

We’ve all heard stories of parents who have used their resources to help their children too much. No one wants their child to be entitled or spoiled, but in an age of abundance, it can be hard to know where to draw the line. We all hope to be raising financially aware and independent-minded young adults. Covie will share positive stories of children raised amid abundance who grew up to be grounded and self-motivated. She will also relay key take-aways for what works when raising children to lead fulfilling, productive lives.

Special thanks to Annie Wright Schools Parents' Association for funding the speaker series annually!
