The Cure & Parents

Publisher: Trueface

Whether we are reacting to our parents, planning to be parents, overwhelmed at being parents, or learning to stand with our kids as they now parent, we need to know there is a way home. A way to be convinced God is in the middle of every stage of our family. 

These words have been said more than once: “Tell me again, what made us think that we could be parents.”

No one could tell us how tired and overmatched we would feel. Or how exasperated we’d get when our kids didn’t receive our best attempts at guiding, loving and teaching. 

So, this book is filled with hope, joy, insight, wisdom and maybe a fresh way of seeing. We get to ride with a family as they struggle through the same mistakes we can make. Then we watch them imperfectly, but wonderfully learn to find each other.

It always begins with us, the parents. And it always involves us earning our children’s trust. All, so we can leave a profound mark in this world by our transformative influence on our kids. 

Enjoy the ride.
