After laying down foundational parenting principles, Tripp covers specific applications for children 0-5, 6-12, and 13-18. This conference also includes a free PDF Leader's Guide and Discussion Guide, filled with helpful application questions for couples and small groups.
GOSPEL PRINCIPLES THAT CAN RADICALLY CHANGE YOUR FAMILY

In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything "right" and raise up "good" children, it's easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas. In this life-giving class, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God's plan for us as parents.
Current Times: Our classes will be meeting on Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00 CST starting February 7th, 2023. You can attend online or in person. Our next round of classes will begin on August 1st, 2023.
