Turning the Hearts of Parents and Teenagers Toward Each Other
Thirty Days
Thirty Days
The 30 Days Experience Can 10 minutes a day for 30 days really make a difference? When it comes to building relationships between students and their parents, sometimes 30 days may be the best way to start. Developed by Richard Ross and Gus Reyes, this remarkable resource is designed to re-open the lines of communication and help families rebuild and even deepen their relationships.

Starting with just ten minutes each evening, parents and teens find a quiet place and, by candlelight, open and alternately read five cards, each designed to build heart connections. One mother called it "an incredible experience; eye-opening, tear-jerking, and heart-warming all at the same time."

To create 30 Days, Richard and Gus drew on both their extensive professional experience and on their personal desires to better relate with their own teenage children.
Reports Virginia Dad Virginia Dad — What a powerful 30 days my son and I just spent together. We have always had a good relationship, this study has deepened our love for each other. words cannot describe the feeling of my son laying hands on me to pray for me. I never imagined how just 10 minutes a day could change our lives so much. My son has asked if we could continue our time together 3-4 days per week, how awesome. Could you imagine if all teenagers and parents spent this time together, we could change the world.
