Welcome to Parent Fuel. My name is Dawn and I have the privilege to being mum of 3 children. I have been a solo parent for 16 years now. I know that life as a parent can be hard. Like most parents I have up and down days. However, I choose, for the most part, to live my life as if it were an adventure.
We are a Christian family and so our faith is very central to who we are as a family.I am very passionate about parenting and living out a faith-filled adventure. I am also an advocate for justice and restoration and helping release people into all that God has created them to be.
Over the years I have worked with children, young people and parents in a variety of different settings. From trauma therapy sessions, to churches, to estates, to schools, I've seen and learnt a lot. I'm trained in how trauma impacts the brain, Mental Health, County Lines, Domestic Abuse, Children's Ministry and Evangelism & Apologetics. Most of all, I just love Jesus and have a burning desire for other people to love Him too
These pages are woven together from a rich fabric of real life stories. They are my stories, they are my friends stories, they are your stories. I don't have all the answers to life's parenting questions, but there is strength in learning to tell our stories.
My prayer is that these stories help fuel your own parenting journey.
