Want to raise incredible kids who love Jesus? We can show you how!

Basecamp is a parenting membership platform and library to help you in your parenting journey through monthly concepts, actionable teachings, helpful resources, and guidance.

Are you telling yourself some of the same things we used to?

  • “I feel like I never do this parenting thing right! There are so many methods and different advice out there. How do I know who to listen to?”

  • “Often, I walk away from parenting advice feeling discouraged. Like my kids are already too far gone, and I’ve already made so many mistakes. It’s too late.”

Guess What?

There’s Good News!

We spent three decades working first with our own family and then with many other families to develop a proven way to make you an amazing parent!

You can do this! We will show you how!

Through Basecamp, you’ll experience:

Improved Relationships

Less conflict with your kids

Less whining and complaining

Unity in parenting with your spouse

Better listening skills

More confidence in your parenting

More respect from your kids

More positivity, less negativity

What current Basecamp parents are saying…

Here’s what you will get…

Guided Monthly Experience

Each month we will focus on a specific concept you need to become the parent God created you to be through short videos, helpful challenges, and inspirations. You will be amazed at how quickly you can learn and apply these key concepts immediately in your home.

Meet Don & Suzanne Manning

We have seven children—four daughters, three sons—ages 14 to 31, who love Jesus, love us, and love each other. We have found freedom in our parenting and enjoy amazing relationships with our children.

We LOVE FAMILY. Honestly, it’s the best thing we have ever done!

But it wasn’t always this way.

We had several small children, lots of stress, and not a lot of answers. We didn’t just want to be good parents. We wanted to be GREAT parents!

At first, we just wanted our kids to obey us and to stop the never-ending chaos.

But as they got older, we wanted to have great relationships with them, and we wanted our kids to be healthy, confident, mature, and fun!

Yet how were we going to do that when we were tired, guilty for yelling at them, and struggling in our marriage? And we realized…time was slipping away, and we only got once chance to do this family thing right.
