Our hope here at Family Teams is to equip and encourage you through various resources that fill in the gaps for you as you build your multi-generational family team on a mission. We have books, courses, and podcasts and you can find the various projects we hope serve you below:
Skill of Fatherhood
This master class is the biggest and most awesome thing I think we are doing in 2019. We already have shot the whole class, and let me tell you, it’s INSANELY GOOD and jam-packed with so much wisdom and many tools. Honestly, I wish I had this course four years ago before we started having kids! It’s a master class with multiple sections/modules on one topic that has various courses within it. There is an entire module (8 videos) on the skill of training your kids, of coaching your family as a team on a mission (7 videos) and building a multi-generational family (8 videos). And then on top of that, there will be an entire ‘buffet style’ library with tons of short 2-3 minute videos that are quick ‘tools’ or ‘hacks’ to add to your parenting belt. This master class also includes interviews with multiple families to show you practical ways of how others are implementing and walking this same journey!
Seriously, this one is incredible, and we tried to make it WAY cheaper than most family conferences (which are usually $250-$350) and yet WAY better (it’s not just a handful of random conference talks, but an entire system and blueprint for how to build and create a family that is full of life and joy and God’s design).
NOTE: even though it’s called Skill of Fatherhood, it 100% can be bought and watched by mothers or as a couple together.
The Seven Day Family E-Course
This family e-course is a normal course like ones we’ve done in the past (Finding Freedom, Power of the Psalms, etc.) where we offer a 10-week video series + digital workbook. This course has the power to turn a family around and gives the perfect blueprint for creating a family plan and rhythm that you’re in control of and that fills you. It includes topics like optimizing your week, how to conduct family meetings, why God created our lives to be in a series of sevens, crafting a day of rest, the importance of the family meal, as well as multiple bonus sessions for moms and dads. And we also include three bonus interviews with three other families and how they live in rhythm and how their journeys have been.
The Family Plan Calendar!
We know first hand how quickly an average day can spin out into crazy between work schedules, kids activities, household upkeep, and literally just trying to figure out what’s for dinner tonight! That’s why we created the Family Plan Calendar, because we desperately needed it in our own home. And it’s been the single most important tool for our family’s success in the last year. We needed a tool that could help us get on the same page, but one that also had everything we cared about (practical, spiritual, emotional, etc) all in ONE place! We went from running through our house trying to “do all the things” to only doing the some of the things — the right things — because we’d taken the time to plan it out in advance. We stopped just feeding the kids, and then eating dinner ourselves later, to sitting down around the table almost every night for a meal together. We carved out more time as a family than ever before, and yet also had more time to do things individually. And possibly the best thing is that we created habits and a rhythm to our days that our kids are now learning from and depending on.
31 Creative Ways to Transform Your Family
31 Creative Ways is a book by us that has incredibly practical, wise tips and parent hacks that you can incorporate into your family to transform it. The subtitle is ‘practical everyday tools that will make an immediate difference.’ It’s a useful and practical guide to help us elevate and support our families.
Father’s Compass is 20 fatherhood insights to guide dads through the journey of fatherhood. If you ask fathers today why they are a father, or what the importance of it is, most of us can’t answer. We might want to be intentional, yet don’t have a framework for fatherhood that’s helpful to us when we need it. This book lays out 20 different fatherhood insights and truths that help unlock your vision and potential for what it means to be a father.
Family Revision is a book written by Jeremy Pryor and is a 50,000-word book (which is the same length as Love that Lasts or Jesus > Religion) where he tells his story of being a Western dad 20 years ago and finding a better model in the classical Biblical model found in Scriptures.
