Parent Resources

Below you will find some resources for you to use with your children ages K-12th! Parent Cue is something we really want to encourage you to use as it is simply one of the EASIEST ways we have found to connect with your children on a spiritual level in a different way every single week. You can even download an app on your phone and set some reminders as well. Also below are some “Go-To” resource website for more info on different things your child may be facing as well as some more great resources for engaging them in a spiritual way. We hope these resources will be a blessing to you as you seek to train up your child in the way of the Lord! Please let us know if we can ever be of any assistance.


Parent Cue

Here is a short video explaining exactly what it is Parent Cue exist to do. Again, we LOVE this app and really think it takes away some of the pressure of trying to get everything “right” when it comes to disciplining our children and instead gives us some really easy simple steps to take.
