The world we live in is increasingly virtual. Your kid’s and student’s friends are with them always through their phones. How can you as a parent or leader guide their online decisions?
Parents are the first influence in the lives of their children. Whether you’re aware or not you are showing them what it looks like to live for Christ. We teach strategies for home discipleship that work in real life.
TEEN CULTURE 101
Our young people aren’t growing up in the same world we did. Things are more intense than ever before. Whether you minister to teens or their parents we can help you by teaching them what it takes to counter the culture.
FAMILY MINISTRY STRATEGY
The families in your church need you to understand how their life works. That’s where our webinars and workshops come in. We teach strategies for making parents and families feel more at home in your church.

I’m speaking the whole truth regardless of the strength of the words.
It didn’t take long to realize that this assistance was needed in more homes than I could ever visit. This is why my wife, Melinda and I spent that last six months writing “‘What’s in Your Pocket?’ The parent’s guide to protecting your children online.”
“I just can’t sit and READ the bible anymore,” I said. “It’s like a chore, like something I don’t want to do but must so that I can feel good about myself. Like if I haven’t finished the Bible Apps annual reading plan, I can’t look at anyone in the eye. I hate when the ‘things of God’ make me feel that way. What’s up with this, man? Why do I feel this way?”
No matter what topic we are talking about: faith, prophecy, politics, social justice, sports, or geek fandom (one of my favorites) there are things I am just not authorized or qualified to speak to. I can’t tell you every single thing about the bible, for example, and the way it should be interpreted.
As my son lays in bed and screams “NO NO NO AAAAHHHRRRGGGG!” I don’t touch him. I don’t intervene, I just tell him everything is ok. I assure him of what he really, truly already knows. The tricky thing is that he is technically still asleep during these night terrors so he barely even knows I’m there.
It’s amazing what the “American Dream” has become. More stuff, less time, more stress, less priority, more work, less play, more debt, and less freedom. It’s tragic to think that in a country where we can be whatever we chose to be we are bound by what everyone else says we should be. Not our family. Not anymore!
In the second installment of my audio journal I’ll talk about my wife giving birth to our son in our bedroom and a parenting lesson I learned today. I end with a bit of an update from the fundraising trail.
