Our speaker was Loren C. Fardulis, MA. He is about kids and their families. Specifically, he is about neglected and abused kids and family dynamics: relationships, child development, discipline, and behavior modification. Loren is a father and step-dad to six children and grandpa to 12. His life journey has taken him through a divorce, the architecture of a blended family, the death of a daughter, the loss of a family business, and the survival of a major heart attack.

Loren earned his master's degree in Psychology from Andrews University in Michigan. He was an educator and counselor for over 30 years. He founded and served as Chief Executive Officer for Monarch Youth Homes, a multi-state residential treatment agency. In addition he co-founded two institutes that produce professional materials for group homes, treatment centers, and parents: The 180 Institute and the IPC Institute. Loren is currently the founder and Chief Executive Officer for Kairos Youth and Family Services (d.b.a. Amy's House).

His experiences have taken him across America as well as internationally into El Salvador and Bangladesh where he was privileged to provide consulting and training to administrators, teachers, and youth workers in orphanages.

Loren believes that the number one job of parents and Child Care Workers is to inspire their children. He believes that they need to be empowered with knowledge and skills to do just that. He has written and published workbooks, parenting tools, charts, articles, and professional training curriculum for Child Care Workers. He is a passionate teacher, a sensitive counselor, and a realist.
