How can Navigating The Years help you parent your teens and tweens?
Hi, I’m Ashley!
I’m an imperfect mother. Flawed wife. Servant-hearted Christ follower. Encouraging teacher. Lifelong learner. Recovering introvert. Chocolate lover. And scaredy-cat “adventurer.” Parenting is by far my greatest adventure of all!
My heart is for parents during this confusing, rewarding, hilarious, and terrifying stage of life with teens and tweens in the home. The goal is for Navigating the Years to be a place where parents with a growth mindset support and encourage each other. Together, we seek solutions to raising teens and preteens with character and practical life skills. And, maybe, just maybe, we can send off young adults who
- love and think of others
- resolve conflicts and practical problems
- give generously and save wisely
- are content and connected
- improve our world by being engaged with people of the world.
So, please join us as we navigate the skills for life!
