How Parents Worldwide Are LEADING with GRACE
David from Singapore
"Our group wondered: are the CF teachings too western? Would it fit with our Asian culture? We had the privilege of raising this question in a small group zoom session with Jim and Lynne. Jim had pointed out sin is sin and idolatry is idolatry. Idolizing academic success looks pretty much the same in any culture."
A mom in Mongolia
"Before the course we originally expected obedience immediately. After the course, we realize that the connection and the process is much more important than immediate obedience. The framework is on our fridge and many people from a variety of cultures (Mongolian, German, Kazakh, Russian) have asked us about it when they visit.”
Juan & Nita from South Africa
"I have come to understand that shouting, being loud and dominating does not earn the respect and obedience that I desire. When your child sees that you want to understand their heart and their specific struggle, then you see lasting fruit, willing obedience, gentleness from both parent and child."
Kara in Thailand
"It's a challenge in our mixed cultural family to apply ANY parenting guidance. What's different with Connected Families is we can take the framework, as a set of messages we want to 'speak' to our children in everything we do. We can each apply it individually, within our own cultural reflexes, and work within that."
Gail in Albania
"The message of the Connected Families Framework is critical to the Albanian context in the 21st century. We are a first-generation church, thus first-generation Christian parents in an emerging culture where traumas and emotional unhealth are the norm both in parents’ pasts and current family dynamics. "
Naoko in South Africa
"I have become more aware of creating 'safe' space for our children. This means I am more aware of listening to them carefully and being more sensitive to their emotional needs."
