When we started our journey, we didn’t know where we would end up and never fathomed the thought it would be something we shared with others. When we were encouraged to tell our story and share our communication framework through a book, it wasn’t a process I had ever imagined. I just wanted to publish the framework of our methodology — actionable items for your family that show you how to turn the “what” of parenting into the “how.”
Besides, who wants to read a story about an average imperfect family anyway?
Luckily — thanks to some good advisors — reality sank in and we told our story of how our communication framework redefined who we are, what we believe in, and how we do things.
However, I’ve always felt the need to publish a guidebook, a “CliffsNotes” version of our book that just delivered you those actionable items for your family. Let’s face it, we are all busy and quick reminders are critical. Without consistent refreshers, we may just forget important points altogether.
So, here it is, the pocket guide to How Imperfect Parents Lead Great Families.
Actionable Items For Your Family
Of course, we still think reading the book is worthwhile! Sure, selling a few more copies would be nice, but it’s not about that. The book can show you that you, too, have a story to tell. Bringing your family together and enhancing communication in your home is a process that takes times, lots of time, but you can do it. And most of all — you are not alone.
That’s the one thing I never expected on this journey, but as we told our story and others shared their stories with us, I realized that we are never alone — we are all dealing with something, and we are more alike than we are different. Imperfect is normal, perfection is not. Purpose is everything.
We hope the pocket guide to How Imperfect Parents Lead Great Families will help your family succeed and thrive.
