How do you handle your emotions? Would you say you treat them with honor or resentment? Do you feel that handling your emotions is a balancing act you haven't quite mastered? Do you find yourself having big reactions to your child's intense emotions most times?
In this guide to emotional self discovery, parents are provided the tools to parent from the inside out as we unlearn and relearn the many lessons life has taught on the topic of emotions. This workbook style e-Book provides opportunities for reflection & practical steps on ways to give ourselves permission to FEEL emotions without the pressure to FIX them.
As we show up for ourselves, we model the very skills our children may learn to mirror. Our ability to be emotionally present with self, directly impacts our presence with our children.

Although small in stature these two have been huge in impact, daily reminding us of this truth: “Your greatest contribution to the kingdom of God may not be something you do but someone you raise.”
One thing parenting has taught me is that if we allow it to, it reveals who we are at our core. Parenting can reveal our strengths, our growth areas, our insecurities, our fears and everything in between.As parents, we have the unique opportunity to learn even more about ourselves, our stories, and our experiences, as we embrace the many emotions the journey evokes.
I see you.
I'm rooting for you.
honored to join your journey in this way.
The goal is not to be a perfect parent, the goal is to be a present Parent.
Practicing presence starts within. Are you ready for more tools for your journey?
