Accessing Heaven’s Help in Parenting Struggling Teens
Welcome to Hearts in Tune! My name is Kathryn; my husband Kent and I are proud parents to a blended family of seven children and grandparents to seven grandchildren (number eight coming soon!) Like many of you, I stepped into the role of parent with high expectations about the family I would create. However, multiple traumas and unexpected blows set me on a course very different than the one I had envisioned. I established Hearts in Tune with a goal of helping parents use scripture as their guide and comfort throughout what can often feel like a long and thankless journey.
Our Vision vs. God’s Plan
Twenty-seven years ago, I set out to build a perfect, unified, and happy family, thinking I knew exactly what that meant. While my family is all of these things, it looks vastly different than I had imagined it would. It turns out that my vision of perfection wasn’t what the Lord had planned for us. You see, my family isn’t perfect because we’ve done everything right, but because we are all learning and growing in the ways we need.
Follow His Lead
While parenting teens is a challenge, we don’t have to go it alone. Throughout the scriptures, the Lord provides us with excellent parental role models and sound principles to guide us as we work to rear responsible, faithful children.
Strength and Hope for Challenging Times
I have learned so much on my journey through parenting, and I am excited to share advice with you, which is solidly based on scripture. When you adopt these principles, you’ll be more in tune to your teenager and to God’s plan for you as a parent. I have witnessed the positive results of these applications in my family and many others, and I look forward to walking with you on your personal parenting journey. We can face today and have hope for tomorrow as we reach our children with Hearts in Tune.
