I think I was pretty anxious, just typical feeling I get in the situation with my kids. The empathy that he provided, just affirming what I was feeling was helpful.

He was very helpful at reframing and rephrasing, like helping me to give words to my son on how he could handle the situation better. It was wonderful…I’m going to take those suggestions home and try them out. Absolutely.


We feel a lot more confident in knowing that we have a guidebook and direction for creating a more peaceful, loving and God-centred home.

We approached pastor Steve to ask him for advice on discipline and he offered to do some coaching sessions with us. We were struggling with a few things at home such as our daughter being defiant when it came time to do school work and resistance at bedtime from both of our middle children…Steve gave us some great examples of questions we could ask our children to soften the mood when they are angry or frustrated. He encouraged us to show curiosity and really try to connect with our kids one-on-one. We tried changing the words we used to let our daughter know when it was time to do school work…and adding in tea time while we read to make learning more fun. This really helped her willingness to listen and learn.
