Family Annual Review

Do you ever feel like communication between you and your child just does not connect? You say something and ... nothing. Zero response. Aggggh! Might your teens think the same thing about communicating with you?!

Many times when we "converse" with our children, parents do most of the talking. The Family Annual Review from Home Is Fun provides a positive moment when children express sensitive topics in positive and encouraging ways. They share one appreciation about Mom and Dad and one idea about something new.

In our parent workshop, we will help you introduce this rich, meaningful, and vibrant discussion into your home in a simple and positive way. Background information here and here.

Having lived her childhood in Paris, Denise Dampierre returned to the City of Light after completing her MBA at Harvard to work for Lancôme in marketing. Eight years, a French husband, and two sons later she left the company to work on other interests. She now has 4 sons and is passionate about strengthening family relationships, having created her blog Home Is Fun ( to encourage parents.

Introducing our Youth Ministry Intern — Anastassia Sharpe

Anastassia Sharp Anastassia Sharpe has arrived and has already begun her year of work at ACP. Her experience, theological insight, gifts, skills, passion and presence will be a wonderful blessing to our ministries and our church community. It is our prayer as well that her time and experience with us will be transformative, as she is discerning God's calling

Anastassia Sharpe is a 27 year-old American, born outside of Philadelphia and raised in North Carolina. Growing up, she studied dance and French, focusing on modern dance choreography and becoming nearly fluent in French through 9 years of study. She left home to study Philosophy and Religious Studies at the College of Wooster, where she graduated with honors. That program required two theses, and she wrote her senior thesis on Kierkegaard’s philosophical defense of Jesus Christ.

Anna, or “stassi,” grew up going to a Methodist sailing camp and her home church, Westminster Presbyterian. She has attended Westminster since 3 years of age, and remains a member today. She attended Camp Don Lee for nine years, and later served as a youth counselor for three full summers as a lifeguard, a sailing/kayak instructor, a craft instructor, and a girl’s counselor.

After graduating college, Anastassia worked for her mom’s family law practice as a paralegal for three years. During that time, she discerned her call to Seminary. She is a student at Princeton Theological Seminary, where she serves as a deacon for the girls on her hall, and as the treasurer of the Women’s Center. She is thrilled about the opportunity to serve at the American Church in Paris, and cannot wait to meet you!
