It’s a common story.  Mom and Dad enjoy great relationships with their innocent young kids… everything is going just fine… then, out of nowhere… your teen becomes a monster!

One moment your family looks like the American dream.  The next moment, you’re spinning out of control… and wondering where you failed.  Your Ozzie and Harriet home has morphed into a nightmare.

So, Mom, Dad, ask yourself this question:  Is this really a bad thing?


If members of your family are hurting themselves or others… be sure to get help!  But if these turbulent times are nothing more than an innocent departure from the family you imagined …you might wanna stop and ask the Lord what He’s trying to teach you.

Broken ideals could be the doorway to an exciting an unexpected future of blessing.
