“The information provided in this program is incredibly valuable for parents of all teens.  Mark’s warm and engaging style along with his expertise on adolescents combined with a Christian perspective make this presentation powerful.  We received excellent feedback from our parents.  I would highly recommend the Turbulence Ahead program.

“Our parents were extremely receptive to and thankful for Mark’s expertise, wisdom, and humor.  His common sense relationship and parenting tips from a Christian perspective seem so simple on one hand, yet they are oftentimes difficult to consistently carry out in the face of today’s societal pressures.  Parents expressed how supported and confident they felt after hearing this encouraging presentation; it gave them new skills to successfully face their own parenting challenges and opportunities.  We highly recommend Mark and the “Turbulence Ahead Program;” it is a great investment of time that will pay valuable dividends for parents and their teens.”

Mark blessed our dinner with a powerful message – a combination of the sobering reality of the problems and challenges teenagers and families face in our culture, and of hope that through wisdom, love and the Lord we can navigate these waters.  His message spoke directly to our ministry mission, and our supporters were blessed by what they heard.  Mark has a real gift not only for ministering to struggling teenagers and their families, but also for taking the wisdom from those experiences and sharing them with the rest of us.
