The Contact Mum Ministry is a volunteer network of Christian mum's available to encourage and support families who desire to implement the principles set forth in the Growing Families International parenting curricula from Preparation for Parenting through the Reaching the Heart of Your Teens, as well as the On Becoming series of books. A Contact Mum understands and experiences the same challenges that come from the responsibility of being a mum and the consistency that biblical training of our children requires.
Often times, we may already have the answers, sitting quietly in our spirit and know that what we really need is the empowering of the Holy Spirit - His quiet voice, His gentle lead. But the reality is, we do become discouraged, tired or frazzled and that is where a Contact Mum can come along side to pick us up, dust us off and set us on our feet and the right direction once again. Our Contact Mum network offers a wide range of experiences, from multiple births, autistic children, to a family that includes children from toddlers through teens and much more.
We have contact mums willingly to connect at various levels of your parenting journey.
