Every parent wants to understand their kids better. But about the time
they understand their kid’s current phase, they move into the next one,
and it feels like starting over—again.

That’s why the Phase collection of books is designed to help you equip parents with what they need to know now
so they won’t miss the important things their kids need to know about life.

We’ve condensed and simplified academic research and the best thinking in ministry and child development, added humor, made it practical, and packaged it for busy leaders and parents in these books.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

“We all know where we want to end up in our parenting, but how to get there can seem like an unsolved mystery. Through the Phase Guides series, Reggie Joiner and Kristen Ivy team up to help us out. The result is a resource that guides us through the different seasons of raising children and provides a roadmap to parenting in such a way that we finish up with very few regrets.”

SANDRA STANLEY foster care advocate, blogger, wife to Andy Stanley, and mother of three

“Parents who are trying to decide if they have what it takes will find encouragement, humor, and expertise in these pages from Kristen Ivy and Reggie Joiner. With practical advice for parents at any experience level, the Phase Guides will make life a little easier and make the big picture a lot brighter.”

SHERRY SURRATT former CEO, MOPS International, author, and grandmother

“Not only is the Phase Guides series the most creative and well thought out guide to parenting I have ever encountered, these books are ESSENTIAL to my daily parenting. With a 13-year-old, 11-year-old, and 9-year-old at home, I am swimming in their wake of daily drama and delicacy. These books are a reminder to enjoy every second. Because it’s just a phase.”

CARLOS WHITTAKER author, speaker, and father of three

“There’s nothing more precious than a newborn baby, but as a parent, you might soon begin to wonder what you have gotten yourself into. Reggie and Kristen not only show us what to expect during our kid’s life, but they give us some everyday ideas so we don’t miss the magic of a single moment. This is the beginning of something wonderful!”

SUE MILLER author, speaker, and director of Volunteer Strategy, Orange
