Next week Lori and I take off to MO, then onto TN to speak (which we are super excited about. . .because our newly married baby girl Ashley lives there!)
Here’s a quick glimpse at my speaking calendar for the next few months, because anywhere you see “parenting workshop” it’s usually open to the public. (Or click here for my actual speaking calendar where you can click on these individual links)

I’ve been collaborating with Focus on the Family a lot lately, getting to know their leaders (my podcast interviewing Jim and John from the Focus Daily Show), speaking for them, writing articles, shooting podcasts and doing radio shows. It’s been fun working with them in this role, so much in fact that they have brought me on as a “Focus on the Family Associate.”
This doesn’t mean we’re married… but we’re dating. 🙂
In short, I provide them with content, and they plug much of our content at TheSource4Parents.com. A win/win for both ministries.
They just released one of my new articles on their site with four tips moms and dads can use to help their kids who might be clocking in too much screen time Continue reading “How to Help Your Kids Dodge Digital Distractions”
