What Others Are Saying

“Parents, myself included, are hungry for parenting resources that are accessible, relevant, and Gospel-centered. The RR Parenting Videos are easy to watch in a variety of settings—with a spouse, supper club, Sunday School class, or small group— with manageable lengths (most around 15 minutes!) yet packed purposefully with Biblical truths that are applied to daily life as a parent. Discussion questions are available as well, and I found myself reflecting on my own faith as well as processing ways to take what I learned and apply it to my own home. I cannot wait to see how the Lord will encourage and equip parents across a variety of cultures and communities through RR Parenting Videos.”

– Dawson Cooper, mom of three boys
