Discipline that Connects with Your Child's Heart

Led by parents Dan & Melanie Pitts, Chad & Annie Anderson

Based on the book by Jim and Lynne Jackson. Learn to discipline your children while also teaching them that they're safe, loved no matter, capable of wise choices, and responsible to make right the things they've made wrong.

How to Stay Connected with Your Kids as they Grow

Led by parents Daryn & Sherrie Veer, Scott & Leisha Lockrem

The natural connection you have with your kids can fade as they grow more independent. How can you keep the connection through the years? Learn what connection looks like, why it's important, what prevents it. Discover practical ways to connect and stay connected to your kids.

Get on the Same Page as Your Spouse

Led by parents Scott & Emily Poeschl

Parenting isn't removed from your marriage. When you're intentional about your parenting, you can improve your marriage and communication. Gain biblical insight and learn parenting hacks to help you get on the same page as your spouse.

Tech-savvy Parenting

Led by parents Brent & Eliza Silkey

When it comes to technology and social media, most parents feel intimidated, under-educated, and disconnected. Learn about today's technology and discover tools that can help you navigate it effectively with your kids and teens.
