Where are you God?

“I heard a 3 star general talking to his troops during a Sunday service once and he challenged the soldiers, you have no excuse for not reading God’s word and taking time to talk to God. I don’t want to hear how busy you are! And then he paused and said, The only group that genuinely has struggles with time, energy and emotions are mothers of small children. I marveled that this gruff general understood the needs of new Mom’s, and those with little ones. 

There are times in our lives when we feel far from God. Does God see me and understand times when I feel lost? We will look at the heart of God for those He loves, and see just how gently He leads and cares for all but especially mommas  and families.”

Chris McKenna Digital Parenting

The internet is complex. And even diligent parents underestimate the digital risks confronting their children. Parents of young children are in the extremely unique position of being able to prepare their children for hostile technologies and implement protective measures that can prevent early childhood trauma. My own early childhood exposures to pornography drive my desire to help families create safer digital spaces. Our session together will explain our PYE Digital Trust Framework and give parents practical tools that they can implement immediately. Come with your pens ready! We have a lot to talk about.
