Who are we? We’re Brooklynne and Caylee’s mom and dad. We are actually David and April Carter, but how many of us are identified this way? As parents, we often lose our identity when we have our children. This is especially true when you're parents of teens. We perceivably know less, are needed less, seen less, and appreciated less.
This is why we want to be a part of BCCS Parent Care. We want to help parents be more connected to what our teens are a part of. Our mission is to educate parents on relevant resources to help guide our teens, show appreciation to parents of teens who are doing what he feel is best every day for our children, and encourage parents through the triumphs and struggles of raising teens!
Over the last 4 years BCC's student ministry has provided our girls with a safe place to be themselves and grow in their faith. Through the relationships they have built, David and I have connected with many parents and families that we now call friends. Not only has BCCS given us lasting relationships with other parents of teens, it has also allowed us to develop relationships with the staff and volunteers who have become our village.
Raising two teenage girls is not for the faint of heart, and we are never afraid to admit we need help. With this amazing community of Christ followers we feel stronger as parents and our girls are becoming strong, confident young ladies that have many people to turn to even when they aren’t comfortable coming to us. This is what being apart of this ministry means to us. We want to connect other parents with each other and help provide the same love and support we have found.
We are excited to meet you and put faces to the names of parents and guardians - not just the kids. We are all together in this crazy season of life and we want you to know we’re here for you! 2021 is going to be an adventure and we would love for you to embark with us. Keep a watch out for what Parent Care will be up to!
Blessed to Serve,
David and April Carter
