What’s your biggest parenting challenge? Is it keeping things scheduled and organized? Is it keeping the bills paid and good food on the table? Is it keeping your teenagers out of trouble?

All of those things and many more are the real challenges parents face on a daily basis. How much more so for the single mom who feels it all rests on her shoulders alone? Listen, I’ve been there. As a single mom of three, I battled the same guilt, stress, pressure, and fear that you have. And as challenging as it all was, the most difficult part was during the teen years. It was that sense of not being able to be in two places at once that stirred up feelings of fear and inadequacy in my fragile heart.

But, I knew that God had better plans for me and my kids than for us to barely make it through. So, it was during that time I learned how to tap into the power of God for security in how I felt about myself, solid footing in the way I felt about my teens, and bright hope in how I approached the future.

It’s from that place of connection that I have put together this new resource for parents of teens. to And there’s no better time than at New Year’s to make a commitment having a power-packed 2014 with your teens.


The Year for Victory with your TeensPowerline365
Plugging Parents of Teens into the Source

Powerline365 is a high-voltage, multi-format daily devotional to help parents raise Christian teens without losing connection.
Tap into the power you need to lead your teens into a vibrant personal relationship with Jesus. Many teens, even those from Christian homes, fail to connect with Him on a personal level. They forge on alone, searching for identity as the enemy pelts them with temptations and doubts. As parents, we’re left reeling, wondering where we went wrong.
Powerline365 offers daily insight to ground you in truth as you plug into the Source. It’s time for you to power-parent from a place of confidence and surrender, believing God’s Word is true, and His promises will never go unfulfilled.
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within [your teenager], will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (Philippians 1:6, NLT)
The coolest thing about this project is the multi-format, multi-use approach we’ve taken to make it easily accessible to you in whatever way best suits your needs. And the best part is that we’re currently engaged in an indiegogo campaign to fund this project. Which means EARLY ACCESS for you!
Would you pop over to our campaign page and see that we have going on? There’s a lot of great opportunity and interesting things you’ll only have access to through this campaign. Plus it’s the ONLY way to get ahold of these resources now, in time for 2014.
