One thing that our student ministry has done over the past year is increase the resources that we are sharing with the parents of our students. We try to share a new blog post or resource each week with them as well as share something that can be beneficial for them to use in being an effective parent of a student. I want to share a few of the resources that we regularly share with parents of our students. So, here they are:
