DEDICATED TO HELPING PARENTS TRAIN UP THEIR CHILDREN IN THE WAY THEY SHOULD GO, SO WHEN THEY ARE OLD, THEY WON'T DEPART FROM IT. 

 

MY 

STORY

Hi! I'm Katie Ely. It was 27 years ago—after years of battling infertility—that I discovered I was pregnant with twin boys. I excitedly started reading every best-selling parenting book I could—and was shocked! I was appalled at what I felt was really bad advice. It was permissive, indulgent, and lacked instilling virtues.

 

It was then that I birthed the idea of writing a practical parenting book based on biblical principles. Since then, I’ve spent the past 26 years learning all I could about raising well-behaved children. I’ve collected knowledge from my experience as a teacher, researcher, and mom. As a teacher, I learned that training was the key to good behavior. As a researcher, I learned that training wires the brain so the behavior will be performed unconsciously or with very little effort. As a mom, I learned that training works!

 

My boys are all grown up now, and in my humble opinion, they have turned out awesome. They are kind, courteous, responsible, hard-working—and they love their mom!

 

My passion is to help parents train up their children to be well-behaved, responsible, loving kids—and to put the Word of God into their hearts and minds.
