My Family Room

Welcome to My Family Room – our official blog! You’ll find posts here by me, Karen Stoteraux, founder/owner of The Family Room, as well as occasional entries from our amazing Family Room educators.

We will share our own experiences, new research, observations, helpful tips and practical advice. This is where it gets real.

In honor of #GivingTuesday, we are highlighting two organizations particularly dear to our hearts to consider donating to this holiday season:

1. Coloring Without Borders is a beautiful and collaborative coloring book created to benefit Families Belong Together and their tremendous efforts to end family separate and detention. It makes a great holiday gift and was the vision of a local mom in our community.

2. Elizabeth House provides shelter and life-long support for pregnant and parenting women in need to reclaim their lives and build successful family legacies.  The Family Room has collected for Elizabeth House for several year and we have seen up close just how important and impactful their work is to the lives of so many women and families in our community. Please consider supporting them.
