When Doug and Lisa Cherry began kindergarten with their oldest son, Nathan, they wondered if they were making a colossal mistake. But now, 25 years and 10 kids later, they are so glad they made the home schooling choice. Three high honors college graduates so far and two beautiful courtships and marriages with four precious grandbabies is great, but the joy of watching all of their children personally serve the Lord is far more important. Parenting today’s Christian family is not easy. With declining moral values, increasing cultural pressures and relationship challenges, every home is vulnerable to attack. Doug and Lisa experienced this themselves when they weathered a serious teen crisis with their second born, Kalyn. Emerging victorious from the dark side of battle, they openly share with other families what they have learned about fashioning sharp arrows that can stand for Christ, equipped and valiant for His kingdom purposes.
The Cherry’s are the founders of Frontline Family Ministries, POTTS (Parents of Teens and Tweens), Victory Dream Center, REALITY Youth Center and Frontline Homeschoolers. As missionaries to the American family, they travel and speak to over 32 cities a year. They have authored several books and videos including STICK: Making the Handoff to the Next Generation, UnMask the Predators, Hot Romance and My Secret Exposed for Teens. (FrontlineFamilies.org).
