Familiar?

“I feel like I’m not doing enough.”

 

“I’ve read all the parenting books and blogs, but I’m overwhelmed about where to start.”

 

“I feel like I don’t have the right strategies in place.”

 

“I don’t want our children’s behavior to get worse—I want it to get better.”

 

Raising kids in the fear and admonition of the Lord is an awesome responsibility. But sometimes, that responsibility can weigh heavily on us. We know our kids should do the right thing without external motivation, but we’re not sure how to teach them.

 

You want to give your kids the best foundation possible.

Let me give you with the tools and strategies that will ensure a better present—and future—for your family.

 

Take the first step toward the future you’ve always envisioned for your family and book a call with me today.

Staying Thankful (Episode 40)

“I look back and I realize that God and so many people helped us and carried us and were of service to us. If we had not gone through those challenges, I wouldn’t have had those people stepping up and showing how much they cared for us and cared about us,” David says. “I think a lot of people, especially those who don’t have faith look at our story and think that it’s totally backwards.
