  • Teachable Moment—a family activity tied to the theme and to Jesus
  • Media Madness—5 reviews of recent or upcoming media releases for kids and families
  • Current cultural trends and stats that provide insights for parents
  • Customizable monthly calendar


  • “I love the informative articles. I think they apply very well to most age-groups. I really like the Power Source area... just a great help to parents who may be so caught-in-the-middle of parenting that they don’t even remember/know what to pray for.”

    -Laura Vallette, Big Rapids, Michigan

    “The idea of a customizable parent letter is great. With Group providing us with “helps, wisdom, and info” for parents we are able to have newsletters that contain our church info with a professional look. This is great for our church. We don't have a church staff nor members who by profession are able to produce such quality work on a regular basis, but the parents in community need to be better informed. Parenting skills are really needed in our current culture.” 

    -Toni Bauknight, Roselle, New Jersey

    “I’ve used Parenting Christian Kids for over 5 years and it’s a nice resource for families because many parents are overwhelmed with what to do and where to turn for suggestions. It’s just the right balance between information and reasonable Christ-centered application for families. The media information and culture and trends keep parents up to date with new releases and statistical data that are relevant to any family with children.”

    -Kathleen Shrader, Madison, Wisconsin
