Parenting by Design (11 lessons)
Intentional Parenting
Principles from the Master Designer

by Drs. Paul and Virginia Friesen

We would never build a house without plans, nor allow our children to make all their educational choices, yet we often don't seem to have a plan when it comes to the values, convictions, and character we wish to see in our children. This DVD series helps you be more intentional about this incredible privilege and responsibility called parenting. Topics covered include:
  • Have a Plan for Raising Your Children
  • Be a Positive Prototype
  • Participate: Enter into Their Worlds
  • Protect and Prepare Your Children
  • Parenting Includes Discipline
  • Prioritize Your Marriage
  • Be Proactive Rather than Reactive
  • Encourage Purity
  • Anticipate Their Passages
  • Play and Pray with and for Your Children

Drs. Paul and Virginia Friesen were married in 1976 and are the parents of three young women, two of whom are now married to wonderful, Godly men.  They have been involved in Family Ministries for over 35 years through family camps, church staff positions, speaking, consulting, and writing. In 2003, they founded Home Improvement Ministries (www.HIMweb.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to equipping individuals and churches to better encourage marriages and families in living out God's design for healthy relationships.

As the lead resource couple at Home Improvement Ministries, the Friesens regularly speak at marriage, men’s, and women’s conferences in the US and internationally, as well as local family and parenting seminars, and have an ongoing ministry with several professional athletic teams.  Paul and Virginia both have Doctorates in Marriage and Family Therapy from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and have authored over 10 books and DVD series.

Paul and Virginia’s greatest joy in life is knowing that their children are walking in the Truth.
