As a father of two teenagers, I have had the joy of watching my daughters pass through many life stages. But if my journey as a parent has taught me anything, it’s my need to draw near my Heavenly Father and seek guidance as I strive to lead them in biblical truth. 

That’s why I’m so thankful for the ministry of Focus on the Family Canada. For 40 years, families across Canada have been looking to this ministry for biblically based guidance in marriage, parenting and a vast array of life challenges.

Today, I’m excited to share a few of my recent favourite parenting offerings. I trust you’ll find something that speaks to your heart as a parent and helps you gain a richer understanding of God as your Heavenly Father.
