Hi there, I'm Shelley Jefsen. Founder of Faithful Parenting, creator of the Peaceful Parenting Workbook, Purposeful Discipline Academy, Mindful Mom's Connection Toolkit, and the popular T.R.U.S.T. parenting system.
I have spent the last 14+ years immersed in research, study, and implementation of biblical and best parenting practices.
Like you, my children are my #1 priority.
I'm an Advanced Certified Christian Parenting and Family Life Coach. That certification comes from the Board of Christian Life Coaches, which is an extension of the American Association of Christian Counselors. My coaching child development emphasis, pediatric background, and being a stay-at-home mom to 4 children from tikes to teens has given me a unique and valuable skill set to help other moms raise fantastic kids!
I've been privileged to learn from some of the most brilliant parenting experts of all time.
My most important mission will always be to raise fully capable, fully confident, fully committed children and build a family that reflects such character.
And my greatest passion is to give you all you need to do the same.
"Coming across your website has been an answer to my prayers! I have never heard of anything like your 5 Step process. I’ve read books, googled everything, and even a part of MOPS (mothers of preschoolers). I am so excited to become the best mother I can be."
There is no formula for parenting!
There is no right or wrong way to raise a child.
There's no such thing as a perfect parent.
There HAS to be a better way!
If there's no wrong way, why do some kids behave so much better than others?
What does perfect even mean?
"Thank you so so much for offering the 5 steps workbook. Wonderful insight, wonderful information-truly a blessing. It was so fun filling out the questions and brainstorming with my husband. This is a great guide to help keep us in line with training and teaching our two young daughters!"
