I think we can all agree that these last 6 months have been extremely hard. With COVID, schools going to online learning, and a stay at home order, every parent has faced challenges. I was talking with a parent from our Church the other day and she said not only has this been hard on her kids, but she is completely exhausted and nervous about the uncertainty of what the next 6 months will bring. Being a parent under normal circumstances is hard, but this is downright CRAZY! I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a few times where negative thoughts have leaked through, telling me that I’m a horrible parent and I’m not doing anything right. Sometimes we just need to be reminded that, ya know what, we’re doing OK.
If you could use some encouragement and a reminder of how God is faithful during these seasons of life, then I’d love to invite you to come to our Parent Talk on September 23, 6pm at Ridge Point. Dan Seaborn and Dr. Peter Newhouse from Winning at Home will be coming to talk with us about what it looks like to parent during this season and give some much needed encouragement. We’ll also have a Q+A time so you can ask all the parenting questions that have been building during COVID. This is a free event that is open to the community, so be sure to register!
We partner with parents, the main spiritual influencers in their kids lives, as we work together to raise this next generation of fearless followers.
