Lori WildenbergHelping Families Build Connections that Last a Lifetime
“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, MOMS Better Together Podcast Co-Host, parent consultant, certified teacher, co-founder of 1 Corinthians 13 Parenting Ministry, national speaker, and author of 5 (soon to be 6) 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.
Personally, I’m the mom of four now young adults (our family is smack dab in the middle of a growth spurt with in-laws and grands being added to the gang) and wife to Tom, my college sweetheart.
Wouldn’t you agree, nothing smartens up a person faster, knocks one’s pride down quicker, or tenderizes a heart more than being a parent ?
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.

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,

Last week I wrote a blog about 7 Things to Avoid if You Want to Raise a Leader. So what is a key quality to develop in our kids so they can become an effective leader? We train them to be good followers. Just like Jesus did. Jesus had his gang of twelve. Eleven of the...
If all your friends jumped off a cliff, would you too? Tom and I went to college in Duluth, Minnesota. Near the campus there was a local swimming hole. Jumping off the cliff was the quickest way to access the refreshing spring fed water. So yes.... (NOTE: This is NOT...
Our kids need hope more now than ever. Depending on the stats you read, suicide is either the 1st or 2nd leading cause of death in young people. Parents, we cannot accept this. We can cultivate hope in our kids. They can be trained to battle against...
In reading through scripture, it strikes me that all our Biblical Heroes have strayed or missed the mark at one time or another. Some prior to knowing the Lord and others who knew Him. There is hope for the prodigal because we have all been a wanderer at one time or...
But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Matthew 6:15 This verse feels a bit like, "Let's make a deal." It's a verse that has bothered me because forgiveness is surrounded by deep hurt. There are times I hold my pain rather...
OK parents of tween kiddos who play video games and are drawn to comic books, this article is for you. In fact, you may even discover a great Easter gift for your child. Below is an interview with children's (tweens) author Mario DeMatteo. He shares how God worked...
