One of my favorite writers and thinkers in the world is Kristen Ivy. Kristen, along with Reggie Joiner, have put together a remarkable set of materials called It’s Just a Phase. If you haven’t checked out the It’s Just a Phase movement, read this blog and go click through with the link.
It’s Just a Phase
Have you ever wished that your kids came with an instruction manual?
Have you ever impatiently blurted out, “What were you thinking!” to your kid?
Have you ever secretly wondered if your teen actually thinks you’re cool, but is really good at hiding it?
If you answered an emphatic “YES!” to any of these questions, we have some good news for you.
Introducing Phase Guides from my friends Kristen Ivy and Reggie Joiner at Orange.
As the next chapter of The Phase Project, these interactive, journal-style books will serve as your guide while you parent kids to grow in their faith and character.
There are approximately 936 weeks from when your child is born to when he or she graduates from high school. And time seems to fly by, with every phase of life presenting new opportunities and challenges. So, we’ve created a guide for each year from newborn through 18 with research-driven information, engaging questions, spiritual reflection, and milestone celebrations.
You already have a lot on your plate. You want less overwhelmed days and more overjoyed days. You want to know your child individually, but you also want to understand where he or she is developmentally. And you want to savor today, because tomorrow is coming soon. This innovative, new series can help.
In each guide, you’ll discover . . .
what’s changing about your kid over the next 52 weeks,
the 6 things your kid needs most,
and 4 conversations to have in this phase.
They’re concise, because you’re short on time.
They’re clear, because straight-forward and simple are two concepts you crave.
They’re customizable, with lots of room for your thoughts, because your experience is different than everyone else’s.
While we can’t guarantee that these guides have all the answers, we can guarantee that they’ll help you make the most of every phase in your child’s life.
