Mary comes alongside pioneer parents, equipping them to:
Create haven-like environments that make kids excited to come home every day.
Shield children from unhealthy family members, yet preserve those relationships.
Overcome a difficult upbringing to parent in a better way.
Experience the reality of God and feel His loving involvement in everyday life.
Initiate meaningful conversations with kids, preventing rebellion when they leave the nest.
