I know that parenting is one of the most challenging and rewarding roles that you and I will ever have! I am a wife, mom of two grown married children, and Nonna to three sweet granddaughters. I enjoy empowering parents who have children between the ages of 3 and 15. I have a passion-filled vision from the Lord to plant the truth of God’s love and purpose within the hearts of children and their families. I can be contacted through my website at www.sparrowministrees.com
New Day Pregnancy Center
In God’s goodness, I have been blessed with two children, now teenagers. The Connected Families framework turned my approach to parenting and discipline upside down and began to build a grace-filled environment in our home. My passion is to share this with other families so God can work His grace and truth into their relationships and grow them in wisdom. My affiliation with New Day Pregnancy Center will allow me to bring this message of hope to the families God brings there as well. Stacy is using her certification as a volunteer parent coach at a local crisis pregnancy center and isn’t currently taking clients apart from that unique calling

I have a BS in Child Development & Special Education. I’ve taught children birth to 3rd. I have supervised student teachers, art and music therapists, and mentored classroom teachers in churches. I also served as a Child Life Therapist for hospitalized children and their parents. My husband and I were expats for 15 years–raising our 4 children in Beijing, Manila, and Moscow.

Alan & Corrie Thetford
Architect(Alan) and M.A. in Marriage and Family Counseling (Corrie)
When we realized the way we discipline was driving a wedge between us and our kids and their hearts further from God, we sought coaching through Connected Families. Now, as CF Certified Coaches, we work with other families to experience that same change and restored joy that we found through our coaching experience. You can learn more about us on the podcast we host, “Building Wise Families”. We can be reached through our email at [email protected]
