Parenting on Purpose 

We all know that children don’t come with instruction manuals, and with today’s barrage of seemingly opposing information and uncharted societal issues, parenting can seem overwhelming. The 9-week Parenting on Purpose Video Series seeks to help parents make sense of all the information, through proven and practical parenting solutions created by Dr. Bob Barnes. Dr. Bob Barnes has a doctorate in counseling and received his education at Maryville College and Florida Atlantic University and he presents seminars and conferences on Parenting and Marriage throughout North America.

Our Mission
To help abused and abandoned children and struggling families improve their circumstances through education, life-coaching, proper shelter, nourishment and work. 

Our Vision
Communities where families are strong and children are safe through the love and support of deliberate parenting. 

Together We Are Better!


We are celebrating all the people and parents who intentionally raise their children to have respect and regard for people no matter their skin color. Parents have the opportunity and responsibility to teach young people to value themselves and one another, as well as stand up for what they believe in. It's a time for self reflection. Look at yourself and analyze what biases and prejudices you carry and find ways to educate yourself and be better. We must seek ways to indoctrinate LOVE! Together we are better!

The ‘One Race’ t-shirt was created to promote peace, inclusivity, and equality during this time of such division. Changes need to be made in this country and in our world. We all bleed the same color & are all a part of one race — the human race. Let’s work together and continue fighting.

A special thanks to all who supported us in this effort.
