SHARE Church organizes Family Expo

BRISBANE, Australia — A one-day parenting conference called Family Expo was attended by almost 400 parents in Brisbane, Australia, on Saturday, July 14.

Organized by the Church and the Australian Family Association as a service to the community, the Family Expo was sponsored by Air New Zealand and supported by the Queens-land Government Department of Families.

The event offered parents information on several topics. The keynote speaker was John Covey of Provo, Utah, former president of one of the BYU stakes and former president of the Australia Melbourne Mission, who was joined by his wife, Jane.

Elder Bob Cowan, an Area Authority Seventy who lives in Brisbane, said the Family Expo blessed the lives of those parents who attended. "The Family Expo was full of effective and practical ideas and strategies to help parents guide their children to make the right choices so as to achieve the goal of becoming eternal families."

The day after the Family Expo, a multi-stake fireside on the theme "Arise and Shine Forth" was presented to 1,100 Brisbane youth and young single adults.
