Hailing from Isle of Palms, SC, Christine invites readers to embrace a tried-and-true parenting ethos laid out in this thoughtful book, set to release for pre-order on Amazon on October 4th, 2023. As a seasoned parent of eight diverse souls and a nurturing coach to over 500 parents, Christine’s approach melds the essence of time-honored wisdom with a sprinkle of modern scholarly insights and real-world testimonies.
Christine will be the first to tell you that there are many excellent books, videos, podcasts, and other resources available to help and support parents.

That framework is: Let, Lift, & Listen. Three nurturing practices that might sound simple but can be challenging for anyone to implement on even his or her best days.
