It is your reaction to adversity NOT the adversity itself, that determines how your life’s story will develop.

-Dieter F Uchtdorf


As a parent it feels like you can’t ever get a moment alone, but in truth you’ve never felt this alone before. It’s exhausting having to be on 24 hours a day. Work, the house, no sleep, no me time, not eating well and showering isn’t even something you enjoy anymore for fear of what will happen when the door closes. Then your kid does or says that thing that drives you crazy for the hundredth time and you feel like you are going to fly out of your skin. At this moment your home feels like a battle zone, children fighting, arguing and angry about everything… they refuse to do their homework, their chores or really anything you ask because video games and screen time are dominating their lives. How did this happen? With papers to sign, calls from the school, meetings… calls from other parents… it doesn’t feel like it ever ends. You just keep taking it one day at a time hoping that tomorrow will be a little better… things aren’t like they used to be… and you can’t keep up this pace… it’s just not sustainable. Where do you go from here?

Parenting doesn’t need to be this Draining…

What would it be like to not do it alone? Imagine having someone sit with you, solely focused on helping you, not judging you or telling you what you did wrong, but instead lifting you up, teaching you tools and standing by your side… This is what Healing Family Matters is all about, building you up, creating supports and helping you to be confident in you’re parenting and family decisions.

There are all kinds of parents in the world – Biological, Adoptive, Foster, Step and more. No matter what kind of parent you are, you all want the same thing, to raise healthy, happy children. It takes a lot of work to make that happen. Right now your home feels unpredictable and you just don’t know where to turn or what to do to get things back on track.
