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,

The transition from home to school is filled with tears, sleepless nights, and irritability. These are all pretty pretty common reactions from kids. (Some moms have been know to have similar symptoms!) So... what are some good ways to prepare our kids for back...
"What a needed book! This past year in our small town, two youths have committed suicide." This friend of mine, like so many--(most?) of us have been touched either directly or indirectly by suicide, depression, or anxiety. Our kids need HOPE. And we need to help...
A few years ago, one of my young adult children (while at college) experienced an unsuccessful suicide attempt. Praise God she was unsuccessful. No parent wants their child to struggle with anxiety, stress, depression, or suicidal thoughts. Statics prove these...
Have you ever compared the words, make and keep? Maybe not, but recently I have. Perhaps these words have been milling around in my mind because I need to know how the Lord wants me to proceed in a difficult situation. (Of course I want to keep the peace-but in doing...
"But as for me and my household we will serve the LORD." Joshua 24:15b In Scripture we can read the commands given to fathers regarding their role in the family. The ideal dad is the spiritual leader (Josh. 24:15), holds a position of authority in the family (Deut....
