We’re Keeping Faith in the Family … and in Your Family

Since starting Whole Heart Ministries in 1994 from a 70 year-old farmhouse in central Texas, we’ve been driven by a singular “this one thing I do” vision—to imagine how we could give help and hope to Christian parents to raise wholehearted children for Christ. Since then, we’ve been wholeheartedly committed to the pursuit of keeping faith in the family. Let us help you keep faith in your family on your journey of Christian parenting. Subscribe below to our monthly Whole Heart Journal and our Whole Heart Blog emails.

We’re Giving Help and Hope to Christian Parents … Like You

Our mission has not changed since 1994. We keep doing what we’re doing—encouraging, equipping, enabling, and engaging—because we believe in God’s design and purpose for the family. We are investing in future generations of the family of God, the church, so all of our children’s children “would put their trust in God, and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands” (Psalm 78:7).



Our heart is to encourage the hearts of Christian parents to raise wholehearted children who will live for Christ.



Whole Heart is at its heart a discipleship ministry—we equip parents and children to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.



We work to create and place into hands of Christian parents resources, tools, and ideas to shape their children’s hearts.



We create ways to connect Christian parents in virtual community, in small groups, in events, and other ways.

We’re Telling God’s Story of WholeHearted Parenting

All we do as a ministry is about the Christian home and parent. Family is our mission. We’re hands-on to leave our spiritual fingerprints on six critical parts of the Christian family experience — womanhood and faith … motherhood … imagination, books, and story … family faith formation … the home … home education. These are our six strategic ministry “Initiatives.” Click on any of the boxes below to learn more.
