Every life tells a story, but good stories don’t happen by accident. The pain of childlessness can feel like a barrier that stops you living a good story. But the best stories told through films, plays, books and inspirational lives are a great reminder that it’s not the experience of pain that defines our lives, but the decision of what to do with that pain. Join Lizzie and Dave Lowrie for this interactive seminar where we explore the principals of great storytelling and how to apply them to our lives to help us live a better, more meaningful story.

Dave and Lizzie live in Liverpool with their dog Betsy where they run a coffee shop, micro bakery and church. In 2013 Lizzie, Dave and a couple of friends started Saltwater and Honey; a blog about the struggle of childlessness, infertility and faith written from the midst of their experience. Lizzie is a representative for the Miscarriage Association and regularly speaks, writes and podcasts about her experience of recurrent miscarriage and childlessness at events and in the media and will be releasing her first book in March 2020. Dave is an ordained priest in the Church of England and he also writes and speaks about his story of childlessness from the male perspective. Dave and Lizzie have also worked collaboratively with Liverpool Diocese to create a Mother’s Day Runaways Service, offering a safe space for those who struggle with Mothering Sunday to gather and acknowledge their grief.
