Parenting has always been hard and it keeps getting harder. So many parents in your church and community feel inadequate and are overwhelmed with helping their kids and grandkids. They know kids are growing up in a world with easy access to pornography and recreational drugs. They worry as they see kids becoming inseparable from their phones and video games. They aren’t sure what kind of future awaits these kids who are so un-prepared for adulthood.
We not only understand the problems, we know there is hope. We’ve worked with parents and teens for over 31 years and know what works. We know the key areas for parents, grandparents and mentors to focus on to help kids become great adults despite the threats in their life.
We want to get the word out that there are solutions!
As you plan your next event we know you are praying for an event people rally around and makes an impact. The right speaker will be a catalyst for the change rather than fear, action rather than paralysis and an eternal rather than temporary changes.
We have the same goals as you do and look forward to partnering to make the biggest impact we can make in your community.
