Look, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.’ Peter and the apostles replied, ‘We must obey God rather than people’” (Acts 5:25-29).

Are you the mom of one (or more) of “THOSE” boys?
The ones who are 250% boy, full of energy, act before they think, are misunderstood by those around them, and basically leave you full on ragged at the end of the day?
I get it. I’m raising two of them myself.
Years ago, when my boys were very young, I felt God tell me that they needed someone to fight for them, and that He had chosen that person to be me. After spending years learning how (and really, I’m still learning), I created the Fight Like a Boymom Program, a roadmap to raising hard-to-handle boys. Inside, you’ll learn to fight FOR your sons instead of AGAINST them and change the entire tone of your parenting.
Now through March 6, 2020, access to this program is on sale for over 50% off. We want to get it into your hands so you have the tools you need to be the kind of mom they need. It won’t ever be offered at this low price again, so act now before the sale ends.
Take a positive step toward an entirely new way of thinking about and interacting with your boys, and join Fight Like a Boymom at this fantastic price right away!
