Enroll Now: My Online Parenting Class

Friends! I am ecstatic to announce that I have finally finished creating my online parenting class: Purposeful Parenthood! It's a little embarrassing that it took me three years to finish, but it's done! I am so eager to begin. The first course will start on Monday, January 11, 2016. Do you want to join us? You can register here.

I'm so thankful that I had a little extra time this Thanksgiving to finally finish it. So much of the course was already done, but it was difficult to remember what I had already said. It was much harder to finish a course over three years than it would have been to knock it out in one solid week. Oh well--lesson learned! 

Over the course of four weeks, we will explore four different themes: 
  1. Vision: Starting with the End in Mind
  2. Environment: Preparing Our Space
  3. Time: Life Rhythms 
  4. Connection: Better Together
At the start of the week, you will receive instructions about the Purposeful Parenthood Challenge for that week. For example, the challenge for the first week is to create a Family Mission Statement. The second week we will be selecting an area of our home to update in a family-friendly way. The third week we will be thinking about our ideal schedules and the kinds of rituals we want to incorporate into our lives. Finally, we will be focusing on our partnerships and how to strengthen them in ways that build a strong foundation for our families.

Each day, a new lesson will be uploaded that relates to completing the challenge for the week. Daily lessons include experiences like reflection prompts, templates to help you tease out your thoughts, inspiration, etc. You can connect with others in the online community forum on a daily basis for support, to share ideas, or to ask questions. The following Monday, we will share the results of our challenges from the previous week via the online community. On Tuesday, we will begin the process again for the new week's challenge. 

I've been itching to transform pieces of our home. Every time I think of something I want to do, I think, "If only Purposeful Parenthood were up and running and I could undertake this project within a community!" There's something so powerfully motivating about having an extra layer of accountability and support. I'm also eager to reflect on our family vision, continue to evolve our schedule and rituals, and generate next steps for strengthening my partnership and my support network. 

I hope you'll join us! You can find out more information by reading the Course Overview or About the Author. And here's the link to the Registration Page.
