We had planned to host the Raising Boys and Girls Parenting Conference with David Thomas and Sissy Goff on August 28-29 at MBCC, but now the conference will be available virtually beginning August 28th! We invite you to watch with your spouse or get a small group of parents, grandparents, etc. together to watch together. The digital content will be available for 90 days after August 28th.
What is Raising Boys and Girls?
We’re David Thomas and Sissy Goff. We’ve been counseling kids and families for many years at Daystar Counseling Ministries in Nashville, a place that one of our little friends called “the yellow house that helps people.” We are honored to take what we learn from these wise kids and families and bring it to you by way of the books we write and the conferences we share with parents and educators across the country and beyond.
Since large events have been put on hold in 2020, David and Sissy have created On Demand content for families, churches and schools. David helps you understand and explore the hearts, minds and ways of boys and the vital role we play on the journey from boy to manhood. Sissy dives into the heart of girls to help adults understand the different stages of development for girls: what is normal, what is not, and how to relate effectively.
They will help you learn what it means to call out the unique identity of the kids you love. You will receive fresh insight and much-needed encouragement for the road of raising boys and girls. Raising Boys and Girls will free you to parent & lead with more life and love.
