It’s not about laying down the law.
It’s not about getting it right all the time.
It’s not even about getting your kids to do exactly what you want.
The real secret to great parenting is to tap into the grace and truth of God as your foundation for loving, guiding, and correcting your children.
It’s simple but deep, and it works!
Jim and Lynne Jackson here. While Jim was guiding at-risk youth to find safety and purpose, Lynne was an Occupational Therapist, helping parents meet the special needs of children with behavioral challenges. Then we had three high-strung, ADHD-filled kids of our own! This dynamic combination of experience uniquely equipped us to understand what kids need to succeed. We’ve seen dramatic results in families that apply the principles we came to understand and write about – including our own. We pray that our ministry will help your family to grow in contagious love and faith with God and with each other for years to come.
Blessed to be a Blessing,
Jim & Lynne Jackson, Founders of Connected Families
How to Grow a Connected Family – With Contagious Love and Faith!
In our first book, we lay out the four guiding principles of faith-filled parenting: Foundation, Connection, ProAction, and Correction. These principles will help your parenting flow from a foundation of God’s love and grace to build better relationships in your family.
In How to Grow a Connected Family – With Contagious Love and Faith, you’ll learn to:
- Live by faith and grow in faith through the challenges of parenting.
- Connect deeply and powerfully with your kids in ways that show them they are loved by you and teach them about God’s love for them.
- Proactively empower your kids to discover how they can develop a sense of purpose in life and be a blessing to others.
- Correct the behavior challenges that arise with your kids in ways that help them develop a true sense of responsibility.
“Jim and Lynne’s book is the most powerful and practical resource for parents I’ve read, and I’ve read a lot…It’s simply transformational!”

Discipline that Connects With Your Child’s Heart™
After years of teaching workshops and writing tips, we are pleased to offer a book about the critical intersection of two components of parenting: Discipline and Connection. This book is written with a strong belief that our spiritual beliefs are at work and being taught at the most basic level – when we discipline our kids. So we’d best be thoughtful about what we’re teaching with our discipline!
In Discipline That Connects With Your Child’s Heart, you’ll learn to:
- Prepare your heart for discipline.
- Connect with your child emotionally before disciplining.
- Stay proactive with your discipline, so that you correct with a long term view of your child’s growth.
- Communicate your correction so that your children understand that it rests on the basis of your love for them and your foundation in God’s truth.
“This material is BRILLIANT! It equips parents with a concrete, easy to learn framework for flexible, creative parenting. What a spiritually smart system! Jim and Lynne’s practicality and authenticity simply ooze of God’s grace.”
Charlene Ann Baumbich,
author of twelve books including Don’t Miss Your Kids, and 365 Ways to Connect with Your Kids.
What people are saying:
Jim and Lynne’s book is the most powerful and practical resource for parents I’ve read, and I’ve read a lot…It’s simply transformational!

“This is the best merging of Christian theology with sound psychological principles that I’ve seen.”
“This is the parenting message I’ve been waiting for! When you read Jim and Lynne’s book you think to yourself, ‘this is the kind of parent I have always wanted to be, but never had the tools I needed to do it.’ When we begin to see our children as belonging to God and ourselves as caretakers of His creation, we take the first step in realizing that our job is much more important than we ever could have imagined.”
Pastor, Faith Covenant Church
“A MUST READ!! I wish I’d had Jim and Lynne’s book when I was a young parent.”
author of over 15 books, and former editor of Billy Graham’s DECISION magazine.
“Jim and Lynne’s new book is a great tool for both the parent who is struggling with their child and those who just need a few more tools for their toolbox. They bring years of practical insight, current brain research and Biblical principles to help parents truly parent their children. Their style is useful in de-escalating situations and finding a practical path to help children get back on track or using their gifts the way they were meant to be used. You will be empowered as a parent as you read this book and sense that you are not alone, but have two friends, Jim and Lynne, on your side.”
Pastor, New Hope Church,
“I wish I’d have learned this stuff years ago. I read a lot, but these ideas make more sense than anything I’ve seen. Our kids are now grown – but when they have kids, this is the book we’ll give them.”
“Jim and Lynne Jackson bring a practicality and calm to a season of life that is riddled with confusion and chaos. Their wise instruction and real-life examples provide parents of teenagers, especially, with what they need to discipline their adolescents effectively while keeping THEIR sanity at the same time!”
