Raising Parents Podcast
Kids don’t come with manuals. Your children look to you, but who do you look to for support? Our goal at Raising Parents is to support you in the important mission of parenting. Often, we feel unequipped for the task of parenthood. Our children are constantly growing, and everyday holds new challenges and opportunities. We believe that informed and transformed parents positively impact their children’s lives. Informed by social science and Christian faith, the Raising Parents Podcast is a practical resource to equip and encourage parents. Parents are the most important influence in the development of their children. That’s why it’s critical we keep “growing in every way more and more like Christ” (Eph. 4:15). The Raising Parents Podcast is a ministry of Highland Park Community Church, Casper, Wyoming.

Motherhood is spiritual! Ordinary acts of daily love and service can transform our souls.
