“Parenting is hard . . . the reality of parenting is that it is really hard. And let’s be honest, if we’re a parent, we do hard things. Creating a family is much more difficult than others seem to view it.”There is an easy solution for so many things these days. Issues with your car? Buy a new one! Issues with your job? Quit and get a new one! Issues with your phone? Change carriers! Raising a family brings with it issues. Issues that aren’t easily solved like the ones above. Raising a family of five was tough. We had ups and downs like any other family. However there were tools, strategies and lots of communication that enabled us to launch all three of our children into educational entrepreneurs just like us. We wanted to write this book as a way for your family to work through issues, questions and the growth of your children. The biggest lie that parents can believe is that they are all alone in the journey of empowering a family. We don’t want you to believe that so we encourage you to grow through learning, navigate through brokenness, empower resilience and embrace the village. Embracing Amazing highlights the author's fifty years of school counseling experience to help you with all the “HARD” that is coming your way as a parent. John and Deborah Lahman didn’t believe the lie that they were alone and neither should you. This book's is a great tool for you regardless of where you are on your parenthood journey.
