As parents of five kids, now ages 10 to 27, we’ve been blindsided by every kind of tough question over the years. You know the kind of questions we’re talking about: Where do babies come from? When can I have my own smartphone? Why does that family have two moms? What’s going on with the riots on the news? It’s tempting to dodge the questions instead of talking with your kids about the tough issues they face.   Jimmy and Kristin Scroggins are here with a word of a hope and a powerful new book to share. They help us understand   How God grew Jimmy and Kristin’s family and led them to write a parenting book Why parents can go all-in to embrace their unique role in their kids’ lives How knowing God’s design for his world equips us for gospel conversations with our children How to use the “Three Circles” tool as a map to communicate effectively with your kids The transformation that comes from understanding the complexity of your son or daughter’s character How to discuss important topics like sexuality, gender, and technology in a way that connects with your child’s heart   Jimmy and Kristin Scroggins have been married for twenty-six years and have eight children. They have served at Family Church in South Florida since Jimmy became the lead pastor in July 2008. The Scroggins family is passionate about Family Church’s mission to build families by helping them discover and pursue God’s design. Jimmy also serves as a visiting seminary professor and Kristin co-leads The Mom Village Podcast at    Jimmy and Kristin’s book, Full-Circle Parenting  will give you a “conversation map” to work through any tough conversations you have with your children. Whether it’s substance abuse or sex, “mean girls” or technology, you’ll be equipped to stay in the game and share gospel conversations as they grow.

Rob and Joanna have celebrated over 30 years of marriage and are the parents of two sons and three daughters. They share an addiction to coffee, bookstores, and Christmas music. They debate whether two dogs are enough and who should win “The Voice” every season. Rob and Joanna are a neat-freak married to a mess, an explorer to a homebody, and an introvert to a ‘people person.’ But they do agree that their vows are for always, children are a gift, and prayer is powerful.

Over the years, the Teigens have lived in five states as they made their way to West Michigan. Serving as foster parents, marriage mentors, small-group leaders, and authors, they are passionate about helping couples and moms and dads experience the power of God in their families. They look forward to meeting you here, supporting your pursuit of God and the hearts of your loved ones. They can’t wait to grow together with you.
