September 2023 Prayer Requests

Discipline That Connects Registration is open!

We offer the Discipline That Connect With Your Child’s Heart online course’s moderated version once a year. We’ve promoted it with new energy and focus, and now registration is open. Pray that God would lead struggling and depleted parents to the Discipline That Connects course. Pray that it would change the trajectory of families and that parents would experience hope and connection with their children. Specifically, please pray for a profound impact through the Soul Care videos and the encouragement and accountability groups that have been added to the course!

Partnership Program Manager Hiring Process

Connected Families strongly desires to work with like-minded churches, organizations, schools, mission agencies, etc., who want to strengthen parents and families using the CF Framework. We have begun the process of working with partners in a Partnership Program and are now ready to hire a Partnership Program Manager. This position will more fully develop and oversee this program. Please pray as we sort through the many candidates who submitted a Letter of Interest. Pray for guidance as we interview them and for wisdom to know who would be the best fit for us.

Preparation for our First-Ever Parenting Summit This Fall

On November 11, we will launch our first Connected Families Parent Summit with a partner church, Wooddale Edina. Jim and Lynne Jackson will be the keynotes for the event, and 8 CF Certified Parent Coaches will present breakout sessions that will encourage parents through the lens of the CF Framework. We hope to replicate this type of event throughout different regions of the U.S. in the upcoming years. Pray for our presenters and the many volunteers as they spend time preparing. Pray for the Holy Spirit to actively guide all the plans leading up to the event!


This month we are praising God:

  • Stacy Bellward was given the challenge to brainstorm new ways of inviting parents into the Discipline That Connect course this fall. She and her team have done a fantastic job developing innovative, fresh ways to reach parents with the opportunity, as well as to bless and encourage those parents who join the course. (See comments above on new additions.)

Ongoing Prayer Requests

  • For the health and wellness of everyone on our team.
  • For parents everywhere who are struggling to parent with God’s grace and truth.
  • For our ministry as a whole, that God would be glorified in all we do.
