Does this sound

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.

 

You’re tired of telling them how to act all the time.

 

But you don’t have time to figure out how to build it on your own.

 

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.

Understanding Kids on the Autism Spectrum (Episode 48)

“You really can make an impact on another family’s life. Just as much as the child might be feeling isolated at school, the parent is probably feeling equally isolated,” Merriam said. “It’s not necessarily what we signed up for as parents when we have a child who’s not neurotypical, and there can be a lot of feelings, guilt, sense of failure as a parent, ‘Was there something I did?’ Just having other people that you feel safe with and that welcome the parent with the child on the spectrum can make such a huge difference on the family side.”

Tell me something good,’” Lynn said. “Our kids do want to talk to us. I think that if we just ask questions and we’re non-judgmental in our questions, we’ll have real conversations with our kids and teens.”

Devotions With Your Kids (Episode 46)

“It is amazing something that was written 3,000 years ago can still be so pertinent and applicable to our life today,” Chuck said. “People sometimes forget that God’s Word is living and active and powerful because they treat devotions as information.

How to Help Anxious Kids (Episode 45)

“When we are anxious, we’re actually anxious about things that are not currently happening, and so we are foreshadowing that something horrible is going to happen. It’s important to teach our kids to slow down, and we can help them to do that,” Sherrie said. “The best way to do that is to look at those signs, then approach our kids and try to change their physiology, like suggesting a bath or walk. That little break pulls them away from the thought that they are projecting forward into a doomsday situation, and it kind of spot-checks them.”

The Changing Roles of Motherhood (Episode 44)

“Whenever you have organization in your mind, life just gets easier automatically. I love that idea in parenting because it is so complex and it is so exhausting—it can get crazy sometimes,” said Loyla. “If you don’t understand the changes in motherhood, you are going to sabotage the season you’re in by trying to carry into a new season something that only worked in the last one.”
