“Family Experiences” can be thought of as “rites of passage”. We believe that when any child experiences different “mile markers” we want to leverage that as well as celebrate that. Therefore we have videos and resources for each year of the teenage years, highlighting something special that you can do as a “family experience” to create memories and leverage the moment toward your child’s growing relationship with you and God.
