Meet the Editor in Chief

william.jpgHi there! I am William Summey, the editor in chief of ParentLife. I have been working on ParentLife for 7 years, initially as editor and now as editor in chief (EIC). As an EIC, I help edit the magazine but function as team leader, helping everyone do their jobs as best they can.

I have been married to my wife, Christy, for 15 years. We have two boys, Jonathan (10) and Christopher (4).

One of my passions is to help encourage parents in their parenting journey. One of the best ways to encourage others is by being open and honest about parenting struggles and challenges. By building community, we are all stronger. I hope that our blog can be a small piece of that community for you!

What are the parenting issues you feel most strongly about? I would love to hear from you!

  4. I love the site, especially the clutter tips. I don’t really know anything about “blogs”, so I don’t feel I can give an opinion on that. Love the site, though. Will definitely have to add it to my favorites!

    Love the blog site. It can definitely be a tool for uplifting and encouraging parents in Christ to raise God-fearing children. May I suggest a question/answer section that would allow parents to share child-rearing concerns and allow some of the more experienced readers to nurture new parents with scripture and advice? Also, if you could select and post a thought/scripture of the day would be great.
    Keep up the great work that you are doing for the greatest purpose of serving God!

    Hi, I was wondering in the last 15 months at least (b/c that’s how old my daughter is) I saw in the parent picks section a sun and moon clock. I must’ve thrown the magazine away and I can’t find that clock anywhere or remember who made it. Is there anyway you can find out and let me know?

    Hi Amber,
    You are referring to The Good Nite Lite that was featured in our July 2009 issue. Their Web site is http://www.goodnitelite.com. Hope this helps! Have a great day!
