Safe House Book Available Now!


Parenting isn't rocket science,
it's just brain surgery.

Here's the good news, you can do it! You don’t need to do all the “right” things as a parent. Both science and the Bible show us that the most important thing we can provide for our kids is a place of emotional safety. In other words, the posture from which we parent matters infinitely more than the techniques of parenting.
Emotional safety—more than any other factor—is scientifically linked to raising kids who live, love, and lead well. Learn how to use emotional safety as a foundation from which you parent—and together, we can make a cultural impact that can change the world!



What is a Safe House? 

Watch the trailer to learn why it's the posture from which we parent, not the techniques that matters most.
