Our HeartCORE Single Parent Conference in KC in January was a great success. Relevant and cutting edge information was presented. And practical ways to navigate life in the 21st century as a single parent were explored. Misty Honnold equipped men and women in how to strengthen their child’s walk with Jesus and encouraged them in life’s transitions. The attendees were challenged by Matt Haviland’s 5 Deadly Traps that Snare a Single Parent and he inspired both moms and dads to co-parent effectively. Becky Danielson provided up-to-date information for raising kids in a tech world and gave parents tools to help their kids succeed in school. She also created a safe place to discuss bullying. Lori Wildenberg motivated families to bring kindness home, created an awareness regarding entitlement in kids and how to avoid that, and she presented loving, truthful, and grace-filled ways to respond when your child’s behavior has collided with your family values.
It was a joy serving serving the single parents in the KC area. Click here if you would like to begin the dialogue to bring a HeartCORe Family Conference (specifically designed for your church’s needs) to your town.

I am so excited about this new newsletter approach.This newsletter has been designed with you and your needs in mind! I have to say I am pretty pumped because I know you will LOVE it and USE it! In May, my fourth and first solo book is going to be published. This book has been a true labor of love. (Real blood, sweat, and tears to produce this material…alright… I confess there was no blood.) And– of all the surprising things. I stumbled across my book on Amazon! It hasn’t even been released yet (May 2017). Here’s the description of Messy Journey, How Grace and Truth Offer the Prodigal a Way Home: “Messy Journey is for parents walking the difficult road with a wayward child. Be inspired to drink the deep waters of peace as you draw closer to the Father of all prodigals. Author and licensed parent and family educator Lori Wildenberg offers practical grace- and truth-filled ways of navigating your relationship with a detoured child whether they are rejecting faith, dabbling in sin, or wholeheartedly embracing sinful behavior. There is hope. After all, their struggle isn’t really with you, it’s with God.” Have a beautiful spring! ~Lori
Spring is a time of new beginnings. The new format for 1C13P will make life easier for you, highlighting topics of interest for you, no matter what stage of parenting you’re in…a brand-new mama or daddy or even grandparents.
I’m off to a new start as well. My new website is up and running! Join me on FaithFirstParent.com for all your parenting firsts. From the first tooth, first day of school, first date and more, parenting is all about firsts. And just when we think we have it down, kids grow into the next stage of development along with more “firsts”. Another first in the new season was a marriage class for young parents I taught with my husband, Scott, in February. Very fun for the LOVE month!
May your spring be filled joyful new beginnings,
With faith, hope, and love,
Lori & Becky
