The Mission

Jenni and Jody’s mission is to help parents find their child’s passion, define success for that child and create an unconventional strategy to achieve it.

To do that, families must be willing to parent on purpose with the end result in mind.

Parent on Purpose:

with the end result in mind

Loving our kids intentionally

When it comes to parenting, everything is built on relationship. The family is a child’s first experience with intimate connections and will determine a lot about how they view themselves and other people and God. If we the parents hope to find our child’s passion and eventually influence him and lead him toward success, we’ve got to make this our top priority.

POP Parenting resources include tools for developing:

  • Healthy  communication
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Strong marital relationship
  • Strong parent-child relationships
  • Strong sibling relationships
  • Vibrant family culture

Training them with excellence

Our ultimate goal is not to produce outwardly obediently kids who may or not be rebellious on the inside. Our goal is to train our kids at a heart level so that ultimately, we raise teachable individuals who want to make right choices and strive for excellence. But it is only through excellence and drive that our children can achieve their own definition of success.

  • Behavior management
  • Character training
  • Conflict stewardship
  • Establishing routines
  • Teaching kids organization skills

  • Homeschooling and Unschooling
  • Teaching Christian worldview

Releasing our kids into a purposeful adulthood

One of our greatest roles as parents is helping our kids find their own lane and run in it with excellence. It’s our job to parent with the end result in mind and to prepare our kids for a purposeful and powerful adulthood.

POP Parenting resources include tools for helping kids:

  • Find their passion
  • Discover their calling
  • Gain critical life skills
  • Adopt a debt free mindset
  • Develop mature interpersonal skills
  • Find their role in the church
