Confused Kids and Frightened Parents

Today’s culture is producing confused kids and frightened parents. And Dan Seaborn of Winning at Home says, “Parents, don’t freak out! Kids, you are loved!” Dan’s new book is Winning at Home: Tackling the Topics that Confuse Kids and Scare Parents. First, we do live in crazy times, it’s really hard to parent and really hard to be a kid.

Then, we must be rooted in our identity as loved children of God, and learn to listen to his still small voice if we’re ever going to have a chance to parent well. Next, it’s time to slow down; you and your kids can’t do everything!

Then, helping our kids work through anxiety and depression. Next, what to do when your kids say something like, “I’m gay. I’m lesbian, I’m choosing another gender.” Then, what a mom and dad did when their 13-year-old girl said, “I think I’m a boy.” Next, you can teach your kids life-give ways to use technology. Last, how to empower your kids to become adults.


Stay Connected


Perry LaHaie

Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.


Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
