There are only 936 weeks from birth to young adulthood in a child’s life. “It’s Just a Phase” pairs current and ongoing discoveries in child development research with the teachings in scripture “so adults don’t miss what’s happening during the critical phases of growing up and parents can connect God’s love and forgiveness to the heart of the next generation”.

We are very excited to announce that Good Shepherd’s Family Life Ministry (Birth – Young Adulthood) will be hosting our first ever series of parent workshops this year. Utilizing the Phases-enriched content (, our parent-workshops will be a comprehensive resource available to all parents in our community who are seeking to learn more about the phases our children are in and how to be present in these moments.

HOSTED BY: Bethany Hammer (Director of Family Life – Children’s) and Ryan Schaible (Director of Family Life – Students).

WHEN: Upcoming dates will be listed here when details become available.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Parents will be able to leave this seminar-styled workshop with a further understanding of the physical, mental, and verbal phase their child(ren) have been in, currently are in, and will be soon transitioning into.

COST: This event is free for all parents in our community. Childcare will also be provided at $5/per family.
