Welcome to the Parent’s Corner!

“It takes a village to raise a child” is an African proverb that means an entire community of people must interact with children for those children to grow in a safe and healthy environment. 

My family has been blessed to be able to grow with and serve alongside our fellow Grand View tribe.   Raising children under the influence of strong and Godly leadership that not only teach God’s Word, but LIVE IT, too, is a gift I personally have seen revealed numerous times as my own children have transitioned into adulthood.
