Intentional Parenting: 10 Ways to Be an Exceptional Parent in a Quick Fix World
by Doug and Cathy Fields
This is a video and workbook based study.
Doug Fields writes, "Yes (parenting is) hard. But what you do as a parent every day and every week matters. Your actions -- over time -- are the single greatest influence in the life of a child."
The study gives us 10 specific actions we can take that will make us more effective parents - and not quick fix parents. Follow this link to hear more.
Our 8 meeting dates are January 10-31; February 21-28; March 6-13.
Second, we want to equip you with resources.
At one point we hosted a parenting seminar on "Parenting After the Storms". Click HERE to view the videos featuring Jack and Amanda Ragland of the Vine Counseling Ministry.
