What people are saying!
Thank you Fresh Start Family for this past 6 months! I have not been the best at posting wins and all the fails. I know I am doing something right when Aubrie my 2 year old can tell I get frustrated or start raising my voice with my husband. She immediately tells me to take a deep breath! I have still so much to learn but so thankful for this group! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
The tools you’ve given GREATLY helped me with my 3 year old! I was just telling my husband tonight that I feel like I’ve just had a different perspective with her lately and just have more options to use with her now. Finding your work & the Bonfire community has been HUGE! Thank you!
We’ve had our first huge breakthrough and I know for certain one year ago my day would not have ended like that. I would have gone to bed feeling guilty, knowing I had lost it once again. Thank you Wendy Snyder for being faithful to God and this work and bringing change to our family – we love Fresh Start Family and The Bonfire!
I’m so grateful for having found this Bonfire community. I can’t imagine how strained my relationship would be with my son by now had we not learned about positive parenting. Instead of shaming him for his poor behavior all the time, we are speaking life into him. We are telling him who he is in Christ and affirming the things he does well. We are looking for the good instead of only correcting the bad. And we are showing him a better way as we learn a better way.
As I’m beginning to realize what an incredible resource this Bonfire community & and coaching is, wow! I just finished up the foundations course too!I have had some really REALLY empowering moments since I first started implementing this work earlier this year. The moment I took MY first calming break was SO empowering!
I’ve been loving this work and the Bonfire! When I remember to apply what I’ve learned, I feel so much better as a Mom!
Stories of Transformation
No more confusion & overwhelm
Take a break from searching the internet for advice, figuring out which books to buy, what “expert” to trust, or getting bogged down reading those “tips and tricks” articles. All of that searching can be exhausting!
SHARE THE BONFIRE COMMUNITY WITH FRIENDS
Just imagine how much more joyful life will be when you feel fully supported as a parent. When even on the roughest days, you know hope, support & encouragement is at your fingertips.
Picture the strong bonds, healthy relationships & respectful daily interactions you’ll have with your kids once you expand your parenting toolkit and become fluent in applying these strategies with your family!
Think of the day when even amongst full chaos, tantrums, misbehavior or challenging situations, you’ll feel complete calm, confidence, self-control & even joy! Gaining true power to see even the biggest parenting challenges as an opportunity to learn & grow WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
This means letting go of frustrations (that you don’t know how to handle situations), anxiety (that your kids are out of control) and guilt (that you’re a bad parent).
Before long, your friends, neighbors & family will start noticing the way you handle situations with your kids & how you teach your children in respectful, EFFECTIVE ways. They’ll ask “What’s changed and how did you know to handle that situation so gracefully like that?”
