Our world is in desperate need of a few parents that will stand up, raise their Braveheart sword and scream…

I WILL CHANGE HISTORY!!

My friend Melissa has struggled with alcohol for much of her life. Her lowest point was when she was drunk in the middle of the afternoon, passed out while taking care of her daughter. Melissa has taken a stand against her demons and she has CHANGED HISTORY!

My buddy Rob grew up in a home where he was beaten, ridiculed and abused! Rob now has 2 kids of his own, he has surrendered his life to Christ and he has CHANGED HISTORY!

My friend Misty grew up in a home of screaming and abuse. A few years ago she caught herself repeating the same pattern by yelling at her two boys. As she was screaming, she saw the fear in their eyes. On that day she made a decision to reverse the curse. My friend Misty has CHANGED HISTORY!

  • Choose your laptop over laptime (Thanks to Tim Kimmel for this one)
  • Discipline out of anger
  • Verbally abuse your kids
  • Physically abuse your children
  • Care more about the perfect house than your imperfect kids
  • Favor one sibling over the other
  • Make more time for your hobbies than you do your kiddos
