June Featured Resource
Operation Parent

Jean SchummFifteen years ago, my husband and I were in the thick of raising our five children ages 9, 11, 14, 17 and 19. Our 19-year-old son was in a terrible fight that could have resulted in felony charges and a prison sentence.  At the same time, our 17-year-old daughter was in an unhealthy dating relationship and pulling away from our family.  To say we felt inadequate as parents would be an understatement.  I felt shame, guilt, confusion, and alone.  We knew our family was at a crossroad and something had to change.  That “something” was us.  Mom and Dad had to change.  We needed to raise our awareness, educate ourselves on some tough issues, have a few uncomfortable conversations, and disrupt some “life” patterns.  I call it our “parent makeover” and it changed everything for the better!  We grew in our parenting, we grew in our faith, and I started Operation Parent with the hope that no parent would ever feel alone or lack the resources they need to be the parent God made them to be.
