I am Lisa Cherry, the  founder of our Frontline Moms and Dads blog. This blog is a little different. We tackle some of the “sticky subjects” concerned with parenting kids in a world gone mad.

I love to read posts that inspire my “homemaking side,” but I must admit I need some posts that equip me to lead my children through the landmines that are destroying young lives all around us!

In days gone by, church potlucks provided the forum for great meetings. Now, we meet on line. With not only a change in menu but also a change in spiritual climate! In case you haven’t noticed, it’s nasty out there. Today Christian values are the “Remnant”-- not the mainstream.

Frontline Moms and Dads, we must sharpen our parenting skills and prepare our kids.

We will meet here 3-4 times a week. Our posts will mostly fall under the following headings:

  1. Christian Parenting
  2. Culture War
  3. Sexuality
  4. Restoration

As we share together, I am certain we will cry a little and laugh a lot. We are strong believers in Him and we will grow to meet our challenges!

Will you invite your friends to join us? Even if we do not always agree on how to handle our “sticky” subjects, we will be better parents for having the courage to tackle them!

You can join us by signing up on our email subscription or by subscribing via RSS.


My Biography

Doug Cherry, Lisa Cherry

Doug & Lisa Cherry

My husband Doug and I have an ambitious #1 goal for our parenting: We want our kids when they leave our house to know the voice of their Heavenly Father and have the passion to obey Him at all costs.

So far, three of ours have hit adulthood with that goal achieved! But our success was not without major battle.

We nearly lost our second born, Kalyn. And since I still have a five year old as well as 6 teens and tweens at home, I am highly motivated to sharpen my own skills to finish this mama assignment strong.

Doug and I have been happily married for over 31 years and are the parents of Nathan, Kalyn, Lucas, Rebekah, Hannah, Micah, Matthew, Ethan, Lydia, and Josiah. Shocking, huh? 10 babies and now a daughter-in-law and son-in-law with 4 grandbabies too! We are highly blessed!

Together, our family founded Frontline Family Ministries , POTTS (Parents of Teens and Tweens), Victory Dream Center and REALITY Youth Center.

I am the author of several resources for parents. Not Open: Win the Invisible Spiritual Culture War is the new book that I wrote with my son Lucas.  My daughter Kalyn and I published Unmask the Predators and Kalyn’s Secret. Doug and I wrote STICK!: Making the Handoff to the Next Generation. I also wrote an ebook, Straight Talk In a Sex-Saturated Culture.

When we are not driving buses of kids and teens, videotaping, writing, or traveling together, our family enjoys noisy family dinners and messy living room laughter!
