Telly Award-winning free series of parenting shorts launches online May 20, with one moving video story of real parents and families releasing each Friday for 14 weeks. From across races and incomes, parents delivers surprising insights from their upbringing and past, marriage and life management, child rearing and faith. All conversations point to God’s direction in daily family interactions from the inside perspective rather than from a professional counselor.
Diverse families with powerful stories:
Jonathan and Wynter Pitts--Wynter’s drug-addicted father left the family early. She and her husband, Jonathan, deliberately and intentionally work to make a different life for their four daughters.
What have Wynter and Jonathan learned about God’s grace and power? Wynter is founder and editor of For Girls Like You, a ministry and magazine for girls age 6 to 11 and their parents. Jonathan is the Executive Director of Tony Evan’s Ministry, The Urban Alternative. The Pitts’ daughter, Alena, was recently a featured actor in the hit faith film WAR ROOM.
Charlie and Rachel Cash--Charlie and Rachel grew up in unhappy and broken homes. They felt disqualified to raise a godly family of their own until they heard a challenge to be the beginning of a new generational trend for their family. How did they clean the family slate and begin anew?
James and Lynette Thweat--The Thweats lost a 6-year-old to cancer. After such grievous loss, how does a family keep going?
Mark and Sharon Lopez--After Sharon was assaulted, the Lopez family worked to rebuild around God.
Natalie Jones, Founder--Natalie Jones is the founder of Parent Compass.

How does inviting God into parenting make a difference today?
