Are You Really Ok?

Did you know that as many as one in five Australians are affected by mental illness every year? This is a problem that we cannot afford to ignore. The impacts are being felt across our communities, both on the health system and the justice system.

Dad’s Toolkit

It’s a fantastic opportunity to reflect on the value of family, and in particular the role of dads, as Father’s Day approaches. What are your strengths as a parent? Are there some areas you could grow in? How do you begin your journey of becoming the parent God has called you to be?

Helping Your Child Through Their First Relationship

We all want to be approachable as parents, but it may be difficult to maintain composure when our kids come home to tell us they have their first boyfriend or girlfriend.
