This week, Jenn focused on the single parenting mindset and how you can come alongside a single parent.  I share two opportunities here. If you are looking for more community, and/or coaching, I hope you will consider joining our twice-a-month Zoom group where we will talk about the ideas that the podcasts stimulate, or whatever parenting topic is on your mind. The group will last 45 minutes and we will alternate between Thursday evening at 6:00 pm Pacific time and 10:00 am Pacific time on Friday morning. We will see how those times work out. 

Also, I am offering a course in gospel parenting, called Discipline with Dignity (both yours and your kids). I break down steps of discipline without shouting or anger. You can find that here: Discipline with Dignity

I hope you will decide to join me in the zoom discussions. You can find more information here.

Remember to rest in the Lord this week!
