Growing in Parenting

As mom and dad to five kids from grade school to grad school, we feel the pressure to teach, help, and care for the ones who depend on us so much. Like you, we know the worry over threats to our kids’ safety and happiness. While eager to grow deep roots of faith in their hearts, we don’t always know where to begin. We want to be ready for the hopes and heartaches, blessings and burdens our children experience as they grow.

At Growing Home Together, we find help and hope from God in our parenting journey. Let’s grow in faith as we place our kids in God’s hands. Through prayer, encouragement, and practical tools, we can find peace and wisdom for each step of the way.
