About Us

We are a non-profit called “Revive Family” that is here to help! Your child, pre-teen or teen isn’t rebellious, they’re likely negative inside, hurt and confused. They’re lost in a culture that values acceptance over substance. So many pre-teens and teens end up in a place they do not desire and never planned on.

  • As parents it is easy to feel like we are failing. Yet…. it is often said we learn more from our failures, than our successes. Maybe it’s time to adopt a new and more positive perspective of your role in your kids’ lives as they transition from being a child to an adolescent and especially as they become a teen. What you learn will make a world of difference in your home.
  • We may feel like we are trapped, in a difficult situation, we become frustrated, lose hope, and may want to give up. The One Rule Home restores hope and shifts how we see ourselves as parents and the role we play in our kids’ lives. Whether things are going ok, or you have a challenging child, pre-teen or teen, sometimes all we need is to see our situation differently.
  • The One Rule Home, with its resources and support lead families to a better place. We have been told by society that it’s not possible to have close relationships during the adolescent years, but this is simply not true. Your family can thrive! Start with One Rule Home today!

Op 9

"We first heard of YTN about 3 years ago and began attending seminars at local churches. We brought DVD and CDS home to continue learning how to parent our three pre-teen daughters. Our transformation as a family truly began when we enrolled in classes offered at out church. With other parents, we journeyed through videos and a workbook to better understand what is going on in the hearts and minds of teenagers and how to stand beside them as guides, instead of dictators. We highly recommend this class and video series....anything from YTN! to all parents with pre-teens and teens at home."

Christina Reger Smith, Parent

Op 10

"We were first introduced to YTN 3 years ago. My husband and I were very eager to implement the things we learned through "Secrets of Influential Parenting" in our family. Suddenly the upcoming teen years didn't seem like something we should fear, but instead an awesome opportunity to raise adults who will go out into the world and thrive! The changes I've seen in my kids and how we parent has changed for the better since we went through the small group study. As a testament to how well it works, every time I start to butt in and take the control back that I've given my kids it always goes sour. It's amazing that when I step back and get out of the way how much smoother life is. I learned that kids want responsibility. As parents it's our job to give it to them. Of course they aren't perfect and mistakes will be made, but isn't it better for kids to learn and mess up while Mom and Dad are around? I went out of town for 10 days in November for surgery and you know what? The kids rose to the occasion and did an excellent job taking care of life while mom was gone. Making dinner, walking home from school, getting homework done before Dad got home from work... it was a pleasure to see them thrive under responsibility. That's what it's all about! I can't say enough good things about "Secrets of Influential Parenting."
