“Where is God?”
From the frontlines, 12 modern families apply timeless faith in Parent Compass—the Telly Award-winning Christian life and family series online on this website, Facebook and more.
Across 14 first episodes, with differing issues, races and income levels, in Parent Compass mothers and fathers talk about their own upbringings and pasts, marriage and life management, child rearing–and faith . . . all with undaunted candor.
“Is there hope when things are spinning out of control?”
“There are times when you don’t think you will make it through the storm,” one father admits. Another comment: “Sometimes when I rate myself . . . can you go below zero?”
Parent Compass Founder & President Natalie Jones, a mother of five, knows this one-of-a-kind series offers the hope today’s mom and dads need. “Parents feeling overwhelmed and isolated now have true stories of God’s peace amidst endless difficulties,” she said.
Families featured in Parent Compass range from the Pitts, whose four daughters include Alena, the jump-roping child star of this year’s hit movie, WAR ROOM . . . to Mark and Shanell Rusk, raising a blended family of 11 in a Habitat for Humanity home they helped build. Audiences will meet the Kos, teaching fine art and raising kids out of one suburban home, and single mom Cindy, who initially three times scheduled an abortion for her now seven-year-old daughter.
Parent Compass families cover issues and triumphs from “How do I raise this little girl?” to teen arguments, from job loss to forgiveness and peace.
“I did not have a relationship with my parents.”
“Are we going to serve the Lord if our baby dies?
“We knew it was God.”
“I was definitely blaming myself that I wasn’t bonding with him.”
“We see so many people in our age group falling away. . . . We are becoming a more tight-knit family . . . from what we are learning about Christ’s love, about church . .”
“Parent Compass parents open their homes and families to let their lives encourage, inspire and empower,” Jones said. “On the Parent Compass website, meanwhile, parents may request prayer and, with each episode, go deeper with more information. “No one has to parent alone,” Jones added. “God, Christ and the Holy Spirit are waiting for us to ask for help.”
