We exist to empower healthy and happy individuals and families.

Life Skills for American Families is a 501c3 public benefit charity (EIN 91-2164248). DBA

Who are we? a non-profit dedicated to empowering individuals, couples and families to build their lives on evidenced-based, timeless principles to grow healthy relationships and families.

What do we do?

  • Coaching: Personal, solution-oriented sessions for children, teens, adults and couples, in-person, by video conference, and by phone.
  • Training/Speaking: Present at conferences, seminars and classes for parents, couples, students and families.
  • Content: Develop relevant, interactive digital content for parents. (Videos, blogs, podcast, websites)

What is the need?
Today’s parents are busy, but they want to be effective parents and have healthy homes, but they may be lacking time, skills and a model to aspire to.



  1. Provide  affordable coaching for families, individuals, couples, parents, teens and children on a sliding scale (for those with a financial need). Currently, we have an unprecedented number requesting a reduced fee on the sliding scale. They are widows, single parents, grandparents (raising their grandkids), recently divorced, under-employed; and some teens and adults with life-threatening illnesses.
  2. Publish an affordable book (digital and print) for parents and grandparents based on the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) I’ve been asked over three decades of working with parents. If a parent of a teen needs a quick answer in the middle of the night, she can quickly look it up in my Coaching Families FAQs book and get free help at two A.M. This resource expands our reach beyond personal coaching, and provides accessible wisdom and insight to thousands.

We need your help now to provide these solutions.  We count on our generous donors to help us serve families.  Please consider your generous, tax-deductible contribution.
