About Parent Life

ParentLife Online is a community arising from ParentLife magazine, a Christian parenting magazine designed to take parents from pregnancy through the preteen years. ParentLife brings a Christian worldview to today’s top parenting and cultural issues, covering topics related to health, development, education, discipline, and spiritual growth. Each issue of ParentLife gives practical ideas and insights to help parents meet the responsibilities and celebrate the joys of parenting. ParentLife is set apart from other secular parenting magazines in that it alone addresses the whole child: physically, cognitively, socially, emotionally … and spiritually.

ParentLife is published monthly by LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention. Review a sample issue of ParentLife or order a personal subscription or bulk copies to be delivered to your church or organization.

ParentLife Online continues the mission of ParentLife magazine and provides encouragement, information, and a safe place for questions and discussion about the parenting topics that impact you most. Let us hear from you about your kids and any topics you would like to see covered.
