Who We Are
Get started by watching this welcome video by our founder, Dr. Scott Turansky. As a professor at Concordia University, Dr. Scott Turansky developed a strategic approach that helps bring about major changes in children. He now trains coaches to work one-on-one with parents to bring about significant change in any child.
We use a heart-based approach, blending the biblical basis with practical applications that help children make lasting change. As you watch the videos below, note the emphasis on the specific how-to approach. But, keep in mind that all children are unique. This process isn’t like baking cookies, with a recipe that fits all. This is about a personalized approach to each child.

Testimonies of Parents
Our teen created painful tension that permeated our home
“In the months before beginning the Coaching Program, I told my son that we couldn’t continue the way we were. We were destroying our relationship. I told him that it had to change. I just didn’t know how to do it. The Biblical Parenting Coaching Program has helped us to changed the “temperature” of our home, reducing emotions, anger, and frustration. It is influencing change in us for the future. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to enhance, change, or revamp their parent/child relationships.”
—Mother of a thirteen-year-old with ADHD who tended to drain family life, didn’t contribute, and had a hard time staying on task, coached by Katie Laney
We were blown away by the change we saw in our eight-year-old
This is the big question isn’t it. We’ve seen this program work in so many cases so we have a lot of confidence in its breadth and depth of solutions. It does take a lot of work on your part. So, choose eight weeks that you can commit to working with your child to maximize your ability to use the tools.
Self-focused 16-year-old needed major changes
“Yesterday my fourteen-year-old son came and sat next to me and said, ‘I crossed the line there didn’t I?’ This is big. His meanness and disrespect have been hard on our family but he’s getting it and making significant changes. This approach works. I would recommend it to anyone.”
—Mom of two teenage boys
Our four-year-old was creating chaos in our home
This might be because the two parents don’t live in the same house, or it might be that parents have different ideas and personalities that come out in their parenting. When two parents use this program they can take their differences and create a single vision and plan. Dads always do it differently than Moms. But having the same target can make the most of differing approaches.
When he doesn’t get his way, my son loses control
My husband and I were praying in December, asking the Lord to show us how to help our eldest child. He is very strong-willed, and we had been seeing his anger and uncooperative behavior escalating recently when he didn’t get his way. A few weeks later, a friend told us about this course and we know it was God answering our prayers for help. We have seen our relationships with our son improve as we have practiced some new approaches to parenting and used the biblical principles presented to help us in reaching our son’s heart. We have noticed he is more calm, cooperative and respectful as we have been able to listen to him better and understand him more. We are so thankful for this course and our “coach.”

We feel now like we’re back on track with Christ in the center of our home
Our four year old daughter was struggling with cooperation. We were frustrated and we asked for God’s help in parenting, The answer to our prayers started with our yes to working with a coach. God changed the atmosphere of our hearts towards parenting. This course took us on a heart journey asking ourselves a lot of internal questions before reacting to our daughter’s behavior. Each week a new tool was added to equip us to parent from the heart. Through the weeks, we have seen not only our daughter grow in cooperation, but our family dynamic has truly put Christ in the center that can be seen in relational ways. Thank you, Ron, for pointing us to the powerful living word of God in order to parent from the heart.

The Biblical approach helped us get to the heart
The weekly accountability and short videos that accompany the written resources allowed me to take one skill or idea at a time and build on it. Practice, practice, practice. My son has extremely difficult issues right now and we are addressing them from a variety of sources. School, support groups, pediatrician, counselor, occupational therapist, oh my. But I really wanted to focus on the heart of the matter. That is the strength of this program. The teaching continually brings parenting into a biblical context and pinpoints what is going on in the child’s heart. My child’s heart (formed by the Lord but experiencing a fallen nature) invites me into the daily situation of expressing God’s truth nd grace into my son’s life.

We now feel equipped to help our dramatic, emotional 11-year-old
Lisa was a wonderful coach to work with on our parenting journey. We have a strong-willed eleven-year-old daughter who is struggling with many areas of her life. She struggles with her emotions and is often angry or sad. Our daughter was resistant to the program at first, but gradually has learned to cooperate with the strategies that we learned through the videos and reading material. She still has a lot of growing to do, but now we feel equipped to help her develop the skills and strategies she needs to be successful.

These tools are exactly what was missing in our parenting
Before my wife and I went through the Biblical Parenting program with Scott I felt seriously unequipped to deal with the behavior issues that we were experiencing with our oldest son. After years of dysfunction, I had basically given up and I felt pretty hopeless about how to turn things around. After going through the program, I am so very grateful God led us to this parenting program when we needed it most. The parenting insight, counseling guidance and coaching tools have been exactly what we were missing. Scott has been a great ally, resource, and coach throughout the whole process. As a result of putting into practice what we have learned, we have experienced significant change and hope for the first time with our son.
