About Us

Welcome to Parenting Pathway: a blog dedicated to equipping and encouraging you no matter where you are on the incredible adventure of parenting!

While we do not know where you find yourself today, we are so glad you are here. We are a group of imperfect men and women who love and serve a perfect Jesus! We do not have all the answers, but we know the One who does, and we want you to know Him, too. So, pull up a seat and make use of the abundant audio, video, and print resources sent straight from our hearts to your home. Let us join forces as you teach your children what it really means to know God, love God and serve God.
