Birthways Family Birth
in Sarasota, Florida
For childbirth educators, doulas, midwives, or anyone
who would like to improve their ability to communicate
with and educate expectant families.
At our workshops, learning is interactive, hands-on,
fun, and interesting. All Charis workshops are taught
from a Christian perspective, giving God the glory for
His marvelous creation and how He so wonderfully created
women to bear children.
You will spend the day making new friends and becoming
more skilled in preparing effective introductions,
asking powerful questions, creating a learner-friendly
environment, capturing the attention of learners,
helping clients embrace their responsibility of making
informed decisions, and so much more.
In addition to the valuable skills acquired at the
workshop, you will also take home with you an assortment
of visual aids and other valuable teaching tools to
enhance your future students’ learning experience.
A delicious lunch will be provided for all the workshop
attendees to enjoy as you get to know each other better
during a midday break.
The cost is $200 for Charis members and $230 for
non-members (includes one-year Charis membership).

I’m super excited to let all of you know that you and others have
done something amazing!!! In the past couple of newsletters, we have
introduced Jannekah and her family in Kenya to you; and your hearts,
like mine, were touched as you got to know this remarkable lady and
the vision God has placed in her heart for improving maternity care
in her community. In just a couple months, God has worked on the
hearts of some generous people to help Jannekah with her Charis
tuition. It looks as if at least 1 year, and possibly 18 months, of
her tuition has already been covered!!! With this much already
donated, we will be able to get Jannekah started on her midwifery
education right away with hope and faith that the rest will come as
If you, too, are excited to hear about how God is leading Jannekah
to serve the people of Kenya, please consider giving toward her
tuition. Every little bit helps and, as we have seen over the past
weeks, the little bits add up to much.
Scholarship gifts can be sent to Charis Childbirth PO Box 6900,
