Joey GarciaLove and Reality with Joey Garcia!

The wise and wondrous Joey Garcia returns to AOF for a lively, free-ranging talk about the many ways love enters our lives—via dating, parenting, marriage, friendships, family—and what to do when love stumbles (trust us, it will stumble). You'll learn how to advise a teen or adult whose hear is broken, how to improve your communication with those you care about, and what to do when your own heart constricts instead of appreciating or loving someone. Joey dispenses her wisdom amid plenty of good humor, so ask questions, and be ready for an afternoon of laughter laced with insight.

Joey first spoke to AOF members in 2007, taking down negative sterotypes of both religion and irreligion, and joyfully returned in 2015. She is an award-winning author and life coach whose print and online advice column has inspired 300,000 readers each week since 1996 (see her article archive here). A former corporate executive, educator, and journalist, Joey trains groups in how to successfully create more joy and freedom in their lives and relationships. She is the Relationship Expert for Fox 40 News, a talk show host with NewsRadio KFBK and is featured in the forthcoming documentary, "The Cure," directed by Emmanuel Itier with Sharon Stone as executive producer. She is also founder of Rise Up Belize!, a non-profit organization that serves children and teachers in her native Belize. And obviously, she never sleeps.

Yet keeps smiling. Look at her smile. The sun rises.
