Parenting with Love and Logic


This is a parenting program based on the book of the same name by Drs. Foster Cline and Jim Fay. It focuses on helping children grow up to be responsible adults. Parents learn to avoid anger in dealing with their children by using empathy and consequences to teach children important life lessons. Parents who learn to control themselves and share age-appropriate control with their children present a healthier model for their kids than angry, out-of-control parents. Parenting with Love and Logic can teach you how to do this with children of all ages.

PREP (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program)


This is a program to help marriages, based on the book, Fighting for Your Marriage, by Howard Markman, Scott Stanley, and Susan L. Blumberg. This program teaches about four key patterns that can harm a relationship.

Linda's Testimony: I’ve earned more perfect attendance pins than I care to count BUT didn’t really understand Christianity until it stopped being a weekly event and became my lifestyle. Through 30 years of diligent Bible study, God taught me how He wants His children to live. In 1993, I began work on my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and went on to become a licensed professional counselor. Guess what? Education reinforced what I thought from the beginning—that good mental health comes from knowing, understanding, and applying God’s principles to our lives. God has called me to share these principles with His people.
