Parenting Beyond Your Capacity provides us with a practical and revolutionary approach to the responsibility most of us find daunting parenting. This book will equip you to be successful throughout your child's development.

In Parenting Beyond Your Capacity, Reggie Joiner and Carey Nieuwhof help parents discover a bigger story in which to involve their family, one in which multiple influential voices combine in order to tell kids the same thing: that a relationship with God really matters.

Parenting Beyond Your Capacity can help parents establish a lifestyle in which they:
Invite others to invest in their children to help shape and determine the direction of their lives.
Create a culture of unconditional love to fuel the emotional and moral health of their children.

Tap into the power of quality moments together, building a sense of purpose through everyday experiences.


What is Parent Cue?
It is a blog. A cue. A prompt.

It’s not an encyclopaedia on everything you need to know. It’s not an exhaustive training course to make sure your kids “turn out” ok. It’s not a counselling hotline you can call when you have a help-I-can’t-believe-my-child-just . . .- crisis. This blog is a cue. It’s a prompt. 

Because really, we know you’re already incredibly busy doing all the things you should do to invest in your kids and to help them on their way to adulthood—and hopefully out of your house. 

But just because you are really busy doing great things doesn’t mean it’s easy to stay focused on what’s important. That’s where we come in. We want to make it easy for you to remember what’s important.


There's something we've noticed in ourselves and in Moms around us... a heaviness, and a need for burdens to be lifted. A need for there to be less on our plates, less on our minds and less on our hearts. 

If moms hear one more thing that they aren't doing right, it seems that we will all collectively hit our knees in mourning and despair. There are enough hard things, and it is so easy to just stay there. We cope in a myriad of ways: we joke, we eye roll, we let our kids go untrained and undisciplined, we escape, we eat, we exercise, we work, we do whatever we can to get out from underneath the weight of our calling.

The good news that when we live in light of the resurrection of Christ, we can have a secure identity and be part of a bigger story - God's redemption story.

This is a community that will remind you of gospel-truth, no matter how you feel about your motherhood. It's for the imperfect mother, still learning, still growing and still fully recognising she doesn't have it all together - but we serve a God who does.
