Helping Families Build Connections that Last a Lifetime

Welcome

“Who are you to lead a parenting class?” Apparently I hadn’t properly introduced myself. It feels awkward to state my bio before leading a class. But… the dad who asked the question had every right to inquire. He needed to know my background before he would embrace and implement my parenting suggestions and techniques. Perhaps you are wondering too.

Professionally I am a licensed parent and family educator, certified teacher, co-founder of 1Corinthians 13 Parenting, national speaker, and have written 4 parenting books.

I don’t think those credentials are the most important ones. I believe that personal experience is the place where wisdom is born, compassion is grown, and humility discovered.

I’m the mom of four now young adult kids (plus a daughter-in-love) and wife to Tom, my college sweetheart. Nothing smartens a person up faster, knocks one’s pride down quicker, or tenderizes a heart more than being a parent.

Parenting is my joy… most of the time.

If you are a mom, dad, grandparent, or a ministry leader looking for Christian faith-based parenting assistance or training you will find what you need here—no matter the age of your child— littles to young adults. You will feel inspired, encouraged, supported, and guided while being provided current and cutting edge information. You may even laugh a little along the way.

Personal parenting consultation or parent coaching, speaking at special women’s events and retreats, parenting workshops, and conferences are available. Just connect with me on my contact page to get the conversation started.

Sign up for my Monday Eternal Moments blog to receive weekly parenting information and inspiration. Check out my resource page for freebies, books, podcasts, videos, and radio interviews.

I would love to join you in your parenting quest to build connections in your family that last a lifetime.

With faith, hope, and love,

Lori

When God Chooses a Name

  When a new little one is conceived we begin to think about or perhaps even decide upon a name. Even before Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, an angel gave Mary his name. "You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus" (Luke 1:31)....
