If that doesn’t just give you all the feels, then I don’t know what will. In January, I read Orange’s book “It’s Just a Phase, so Don’t Miss It” and it talks about the differences in each stage of life from birth-high school graduation. The Phase Project has developed a myriad of resources to help parents navigate through each phase of a child’s life to set them up for future success, and their blog posts relate specifically to each age group to provide age-specific guidance. Check out some of their top posts for each age group, and learn how to leverage your child’s unique stage of life for optimal spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental growth!

Remember, your kids won’t be kids forever, but what you do for them today can give them a better future.
Leave a comment below with thoughts or ideas from one of the blog posts above, and we’ll give you a free copy of the Phase Summaries AND you’ll be entered in a drawing to win your very own Marble Legacy Jar. Phase summaries give a cliffsnotes version of what’s changing at every phase from birth through graduation. Each summary includes a brief description of the phase, growth & developmental insights, simple techniques for influencing a kid’s mind and heart, and a roadmap for discipleship. A Marble legacy jar is a jar filled with the same number of marbles as weeks you have left with your child before they graduate high school. You have approximately 936 weeks from the day a child is born until he or she graduates from high school, and the weeks move quickly. Based on your child’s grade, we’ll fill a jar with the same number of marbles as you have weeks left until your child graduates high school. Because when you see how much time you have left, you tend to do more with the time you have now.
