Phase Podcast

Did you know Gloria Dei has a summer podcast? Each week we will be taking a look at the phases, or grades, of our kids. In each conversation we will highlight the changes in their development emotionally, mentally, physically and socially as well as share some stories from parents who just finished that grade with their child.

We hope that you are encouraged, supported, and informed as you enter the next phase in your child's life. We also hope that through this podcast you see that you aren't alone and maybe pick up some tips and tricks from other parents. This parenting journey is rewarding and sometimes hard, but it is never meant to be done alone.
