Make a Positive Impact Today!


Does your heart bleed like mine when you think of children caught in the cycle of poverty? Several years ago I started Engage Positive Parenting Initiative, an outreach that is making a difference in the lives of parents and children in areas affected by poverty or adversity. Today, (North Texas Giving Day) we have you have the opportunity to help.

  • $25 provides 25 Engage Parenting booklets
  • $50 provides a class flip chart and certificates for parents
  • $100 trains 4 volunteers or provides snacks for an entire session
  • $275 provides for all the needs of an entire 8-week class


We invite you to participate. Engage Positive Parenting is part of the Women’s Non-profit Alliance, so the link you will use will be slightly different than the other links for North Texas Giving Day. Here’s the link to use:

Be sure to enter Engage Positive Parenting for the organization.

Thank you for your generosity and your commitment to Engage. We would be honored if you shared this info with your friends and family to let them know about our program.  Please visit for more info about this wonderful organization.

Making a Difference for Generations to Come

What tugs at your heart-strings? For me, my heart hurts deeply for children who are growing up in unstable environments.  Domestic violence, emotional distress, poverty or adversity tend to create chaos for these tender and impressionable hearts. Several years ago, I decided to reach into the lives of parents in at-risk communities and offer parenting discussion groups to encourage parents to create positive interaction with their kids.

I called the program ENGAGE Positive Parenting Initiative. ENGAGE stands for Equipping the Next Generation to Advance and Grow through Education, Encouragement and Example (our three core values). We are expanding and growing and now have classes in five locations. My vision for ENGAGE is to expand across the nation using our powerful and unique discussion-style format to reach parents.

As the author of over twenty parenting books, I have designed this program to reach parents where they are at and empower them to rise up to their own responsibility in the home. My desire is for parents to encourage and equip their kids to use their God-given gifts to make a difference in this world. If you share my desire to make a difference in society by strengthening parent’s responsibility in the home, I invite you to join me on this journey.  There are three ways to connect:

  • Join us as a volunteer to lead a parenting class.*
  • Connect us with community outreaches in your city.*
  • Donate to help provide materials for parents and expand our reach.

North Texas Giving day is a one-day opportunity to expand your giving. On Thursday, Sept 17 please consider giving to your favorite organizations  – and my hope is that ENGAGE will be one of them.

Here’s the link that will be live at 6:00 am to midnight on Thursday Sept 17.  Important note: You must put ENGAGE in the notes so that the donation will go to ENGAGE.
