You only have these kids at home for a few years — are you making the most of every day?
All it takes is a birthday.
Another candle on your child’s cake.
And while she’s glowing in the candlelight, soaking up the last refrain of “Happy Birthday,” you realize…
I only have a few more years left.
Sure, they tell you, when you’re still in the diaper phase, that “The days are long, but the years are short.”
But it’s not till those years do start flying that you realize just how much every day counts.
Here’s the thing:
You only have a few short years to instill in your kids a love of family, strong character, and godly purpose… and then they’re gone.
You can’t afford to hit “cruise control” and just let life happen anymore.
This is too important.
So how will you make the most of your days?
What you need is a plan.
And it has to be a plan that won’t add more to your plate, am I right?
Something you can stick to.
Something that won’t feel like “work” but your family will actually enjoy.
Building tiny habits. Tiny routines, one step at a time, that will make the most of your family’s time together.
A Family Curriculum for Inspiring & Supporting Intentional Christian Parents
Pathfinder Parenting will help you:
- Make deep, lasting connections with your kids
- Develop character in your kids and build healthy views of authority + themselves
- Instill good habits + responsibility in daily family life
- Give your kids a Christian lens to view the world
- Teach your kids to recognize and use the gifts God has given them
- Grow not just your kids’ head knowledge about God, but a relationship with Him
When you get lifetime access to Pathfinder Parenting, you’ll learn to take advantage of the time you already have and intentionally create a family life you love.
1. The Family Foundations Course
Sometimes the hardest part is just getting started. That’s why, we’ve created a parenting curriculum that will be delivered in tiny, bite-sized pieces to help you develop the routines & habits as a family that will help you become the intentional, God-led parent you’ve always wanted to be. And because busy parents don’t need another “to do” on your plate, we keep things short and focused, so they don’t distract from the rest of your life—they make it richer.
There are 7 units in the course and each unit has 3-6 short lessons along with a small homework assignment. But don’t let words like “lesson” and “homework” scare you! You can take all the time you’d like to work through the course, and you don’t even have to start at the beginning. Start where you feel your family needs the most help now.

My main concern in enrolling was if it be worth it…
…or would it be like my weight watchers and gym membership– just donating to something I never use? Thankfully, I have been able to benefit from being a part of Pathfinder Parenting !
I appreciate that each of the trainings really dig into tough issues and look at them from a biblical perspective. I love that you can access recordings anytime because sometimes life just doesn’t allow for me to attend live.
The training you offer as part of Pathfinder Parenting has all been super practical!
And it’s so convenient that I have continued access to the trainings so I can go back and watch or re-watch them at anytime. But most of all, I love that you always bring everything back to the Bible.
I was concerned Pathfinder Parenting would be tailored just to married couples and as a single mom I’d feel excluded…
But I decided to sign up anyways because I felt lost. I needed more guidance in parenting my boys in a Biblically based way. I am so glad I did. I’m grateful for all you have offered, I don’t feel so alone as a parent anymore!
I’m a Christian mom who was looking to improve my parenting skills and add more tools to my toolbox.
Pathfinder Parenting has offered great resources and information. Parenting is hard work. The more community you have around to help you, the better!
When it’s finally time to watch your son blow out the candles on his 18th birthday, feel confident you used all the little moments you were given to shape his character.
Teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Psalms 90:12
