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.
— There are no words to describe how the 30 Days notebook has helped the relationship between my 14 year old daughter and myself. It truly has been one of the nicest blessings bestowed on us. I have since let our youth pastor know of the notebook and have shared it with another student in our youth group. My daughter and I have discovered that there are many people we feel would benefit from this experience. We would like to start our own "mini ministry" here targeting kids in the youth group and my daughter's teenage friends. I have already purchased 3 books and have gotten great responses.

— For most parents, it is not a matter of sincerity but rather lack of information on how to communicate love effectively on an emotional level.
