Great Thanks to Ona Brown and her Team

Last night I spent 45 minutes with Ona Brown and her team talking about Believing in Parenting. Her endless support and encouragement is invaluable to all  of us stretching out to Own our Dreams! The best thing about her is her dedication to help others to become better. She corrected my tendency to say "you know" which is something I have been working on since I started speaking! I had to laugh when she pointed it out to me.

So, let me tell how I am looking to start fixing my "you know" issue is Ona's coming event Command the Stage Training on March 21-22. Just before I go to speak to Atlanta Concerned Black Clergy talk about the nick of time.If you would like more information this link will take you to the page on Eventbrite to register.

I want to thank Ona, Donovan, and the rest of the team for their support.

In case you missed the show here are some highlights:

Believing in Parenting is looking to bring parent development to local church congregations.

According to Psalms 78:6 God expects one generation to teach the next to love and serve Him with purpose. Therefore we believe it is the job of every parent to empower their children to become adults who live Godly purpose driven lives. We also believe that in Ephesians 4:11-13 Paul makes it clear it is the church’s responsibility to equip the saints to do their work. This leads to our mission of supporting individual churches to establish Parent Development Ministries.

A Parent Development Ministry has three focus points:
  • Getting parents to examine their own lives and to adjust where needed into living their own godly purpose driven lives
  • Facilitating the growth of each parent through an understanding of child development, personality, temperament, and other aspects of childhood to give them the basis for dealing with children based on understanding.
  • Empowering parents with the tools they need to establish strong interpersonal relationships with each child. Then train them to use their influence to empower children to develop lives lived with purpose courage, and conviction.
We think this program should fall under the Children's Minister but be lead by a group of volunteers.  If you have interest, questions,l or comments. Feel free to leave a comment below or contact me at
