Every phase of a child’s life is significant. In the Kristen Ivy and Reggie Joiner’s “Phase Guides”, you will discover how to make the most of each phase of your child’s life.

3 Big Takeaways

  1. Words are formative. In parenting, our words are shaping our children’s worldview. They are also shaping their view of themselves. Words over time really shape a kid’s direction in life.
  2. Our character as people really rises and falls on our ability to push through in our relationships that are the most challenging. This is especially true of our family relationships.
  3. No parent is perfect.  Each season of a parent’s life seems easier in retrospect, even though parents do try their best. Therefore, be gracious with yourself and forgive yourself.
