First Parenting Class

  We've been working hard to get everything ready for the first official parenting conference. John went to California to become certified in teaching the curriculum, I've been building a website, and we've been searching high and low for a venue. We've been looking at the stack of books sitting in our kitchen now for months, the website hasn't been released yet, and we can't seem to find a conference room that's both available and affordable anywhere in the city. So, we decided to get started in our living room.  Why not?  We already educate our children and have church here.  

  We had two families who were ready to get started. They're already good parents who want to be better. God has graciously given us enough seating for them right here under our own roof so we pulled the trigger. John has facilitated two meetings and the parents are already reporting positive changes at home.  We're hearing from other interested families, and at least two more are ready to sign up.  I took this picture because I believe this endeavor will be a success and this will be our "remember when" shot.  


  1. Let me just say this. . . "I'M SO PROUD OF YOU GUYS"!

    On a side note, ABC 20/20 will be in town on Monday filming RIP for a piece to air on Friday the 10th of Feb.

    Make sure when you get the website built to let me know!

    1. Scott,
      thank you so much. We learned much of what we teach from you, and we reference our time at RIP often. I would love to see the 20/20 piece. We don't have TV at our house but maybe we could watch it online. I'll look into that.

  2. Blessings to you all! Praying....
