book-cover-gosToday is the day Growing Up Social is available in bookstores and online retailers!

I am so very excited my friends and hope you will get a copy for yourself and recommend it to friends.  Here’s what one dear mom from our book launch team had to say:

I’m so glad to have all this information as I am just starting to go through many of these issues with my five year old daughter.  My oldest four are grown and gone, and I clearly see the negative effects that technology and my not understanding the potential damages has had.  I wish I would have known this great information and all the stats as I raised them.  But, I do feel blessed to be able to correct some of those problems this time around.  God is good.  Thank you for writing the book!

It’s never too late to make positive changes as long as your kids are under your roof!

Many people has asked me, “How did you get connected with Dr. Chapman to write the book together?”

The short answer is God’s grace and His amazing timing.

The longer answer is I was introduced to Dr. Chapman in 2013 when I was a guest on his radio program Building Relationships about my book 31 Days to a Happy Husband.  I was also contributing marriage articles to a great site called Start Marriage Right which is created by Moody Publishers.  And my friend, Moody author Ashleigh Slater was also a connecting factor.


Through those connections, the great people at Moody contacted me about this possible book project.  And when I found out it was about co-authoring a book with Dr. Gary Chapman, I fell on the floor.  Literally!

It has been a huge joy and honor to collaborate with Dr. Chapman on this important topic.  He has an amazing ability to diagnose problems in order to get to the heart of the issue.  He brings Biblical wisdom from his decades of working with and counseling families.

Thanks for partnering with us and getting the message out:  Technology should be part of your child’s life, not most of your child’s life.
