There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens.
A Letter To Our Loyal and Beloved Readers,
We wanted you to know that things are changing over at 1C13P. Just as our parenting approach tends to be somewhat fluid, so does ministry. We want to respond effectively to your needs.
Thank you inviting us– at 1C13P –into your homes almost every day of the week and allowing us to share in your parenting journey. It has been a joy to walk alongside you as you do your most important job–raising kids. But we don’t want to be like that pesky house guest that just NEVER leaves. Parents are busy. We know when we look at our inboxes, we can become overwhelmed with all in information virtually flooding our mail.
IT’S. TOO. MUCH.
We are shifting our focus from the blog to broadening our “hands-on” Parent Ministry (conferences, seminars, private parent consulting and coaching), while continuing to provide you with excellent parenting resources.
What is changing?
Glad you asked! So… here’s the plan! You will ONLY get a 1C13P LOVE NOTE Newsletter from 1Corinthians13Parenting one time per quarter. Yep…only 4 times a year. This newsletter is written keeping your uniqueness in mind. There will be five sections for you to browse and various articles for you to choose from in the following categories: Seasonal, Little Kids, Big Kids, Special Topics, and Faith and Inspiration. You will be able to click on the items that pertain only to you and your phase of parenting. And we will be offering a freebie in each newsletter–a gift from us to you!
OK here’s the What if…
What if there is time sensitive information to be shared that doesn’t match the quarterly schedule? Well in that case we will send you a 1C13P Newsflash. So yes, there may be occasions when this occurs.
Visit the 1C13P website when…
…you need specific information on a certain topic (for example: spanking, kids dating, marriage, single parenting, etc) head over to the www.1Corinthians13Parenting.com website and in the search box–plug in or on the side bar– click your special topic. A wealth of 1C13P wisdom on the topic of your choosing will appear. We are your one-stop-shop for parenting resources.
It is our heart to encourage, empower, and equip moms and dads. We believe this is the most effective way to do that. With you at the helm choosing the information you need.
So…what if more personal and specific trouble shooting is needed?
We are here for that as well. Just click on the contact page, insert your information and we will provide you with the details regarding parent consulting and coaching. There are times more personalized help and encouragement is needed.
Did you know our HeartCORE family conferences, seminars, and workshops can come to you and your church?
1C13P will continue to present HeartCORe Family Conferences. Invite us (on our contact page) to get the dialogue started. We have the breadth and depth of faith, family, and education experts to meet whatever need your church may have. We are able to gather a unique team to meet those specific needs. Or we (Lori & Becky) are available to do special events and workshops as individuals or together. We want to serve you well.
1C13P is about you. About your family. Your church. Your parenting struggles. We are here for you both virtually and personally.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a
