Parents this page is meant to be a help to you.

I am a parent of four little ones and I know how hard it is to be a parent in this ever changing and anti-Christian world. I want to provide as much help as I can to you as you navigate this "parenting thing". On this page you will see article, E-books, videos, and other helpful resources that I hope will assist and encourage you on the road.

Blessings,
