Yesterday we opened up registration to our brand new parenting experience, The Resting Place. We are so excited to share this course because it’s built on one thing: finding hope! The Resting Place exists to help weary, defeated parents overcome exhaustion and finally find the rest they’ve been looking for.
Over the course of 9 audio sessions we will show you how to build a plan to find rest as a parent, even in the middle of difficult life circumstances. Over our 14-year parenting career we have felt exhaustion to the highest level. We know the uphill battle you fight everyday. The Resting Place is a proven plan to help you escape the exhaustion you are dealing with.
Registration is now open but only for a limited time. We’re starting the first module next Wednesday, May 18th at 7 am so we have to close things down the night before. Registration ends at 11:59pm on Tuesday night, May 17th. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to find the rest you’ve been looking for!
We hope that today’s podcast has been an encouragement for you on the foster and adoptive journey. Even though it doesn’t seem like it, your life and your choice to be love is telling the world a bigger story than you can begin to imagine.
