Click below to learn more about each session.

A strong relationship with your teen is the cornerstone for having influence in his or her life. Parenting and developing a relationship with teenagers requires a different approach than when they were young. We’ll explore what a mentoring and coaching approach might look like and discuss practical steps you can take to build and strengthen your relationship with your teen.

Does it seem like your teen clams up when you ask a question? There is a proven technique you can use to get your teen to talk to you. We’ll discuss how to help your children feel heard, understood, and loved. As you use this technique with your children (and others!), you’ll see the walls between you fall down. You’ll increase your influence in their lives as you learn to communicate with each other more effectively.

We want our homes to be a place of refuge for our family. But in today’s fast-paced society, how can we create a thriving home atmosphere that allows everyone to achieve their God-given potential with less stress? We’ll work through exercises to help you identify the atmosphere you want to have in your home and discuss two practical ways to begin cultivating your vision.


Write Your Mission Statement Guided Work Session

A mission statement becomes your decision-making framework, allowing you to make decisions with confidence and clarity. At the end of this guided work session, you will have a draft of your mission statement to guide you in living an intentional and purposeful life. You can work on your personal, family, or homeschool mission statement.

This is a two-hour session or two one-hour sessions.
