Watch the Thrive Video Series Introduction
Children are under tremendous pressure today resulting in all kinds of personal challenges that affect their hearts and their responses to life. Anxiety, disrespect, defiance, depression, ADHD, and even things like anger episodes or arguing with Mom when she says no are indications of significant challenges.
But there is hope!
We believe that parents are the best counselors for their kids if they have a good plan. We have developed a heart-based plan modeled after the way that God works with us, his children, and it’s powerful! We’ve packaged this plan in an easy-to-use video-driven package called THRIVE! for use in your own family or in a small group at your church.
We know that all children are unique BUT every child has a heart, and when you use these tools and strategies, major changes take place in your child. In fact, we can help ANY Child at ANY Age with ANY Problem. AND, change happens fast when you focus on the heart of a child.
Watch Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN talk about the creation of THRIVE!
The 12 lessons can be used in your family or in a church small group

We hear story after story of children of all ages who have experienced major changes using a heart-based approach.
One dad called the office because his sixteen-year-old son had run away from home. They learned more about a heart-based approach and went to work. In just eight weeks the son was back home, attending school, working, and most importantly the relationship between Dad and his son had made a 180° turn. Dad is telling all his friends about biblical parenting.
Recently, in a call to our office, another dad told us that he had given up and could hardly wait for his kids to move out. I wish he would get involved in our Biblical Parenting Coaching Program, but he’s already decided his kids are the problem and he’s lost hope. It’s sad. It doesn’t have to be that way. God changes people at any age, and it starts with the heart. If you’re feeling discouraged in your parenting, consider allowing us to come along side you to bring about change.
AND THERE’S MORE! Maybe you’d like to work on THRIVE! with others. Thriving Kids Connection is a community of parents and Biblical Parenting Coaches who share a Godly vision for equipping kids to thrive and developing missional families. New and experienced parents gather together with trained coaches to talk about WHAT changes need to take place and then most importantly, HOW to move forward step by step. Our goal is to help children thrive in an ever changing and complicated world. Learn more at ThrivingKidsConnection.com.
