St. Catherine's Episcopal Church
571 Holt Road NW
Marietta, GA 30068

Join us as we explore the links between spirituality and the health and well-being of children and adolescents with Dr. Lisa Miller, author of The Spiritual Child.

In The Spiritual Child, psychologist Lisa Miller presents the next big idea in psychology: the science and the power of spirituality. She explains the clear, scientific link between spirituality and health and shows that children who have a positive, active relationship to spirituality: are 40% less likely to use and abuse substances; are 60% less likely to be depressed as teenagers; are 80% less likely to have dangerous or unprotected sex; and have significantly more positive markers for thriving including an increased sense of meaning and purpose, and high levels of academic success.
