Wendy and Jeff have two children, their daughter Jesse and son Cole. Jesse recently graduated from Samford University and Cole is in his Freshman year of college. Wendy has been a stay-at-home mom for almost 21 years now and has learned a lot along the way. What she hasn’t learned from real life parenting experiences, she sought out through mentors and reflecting on the parenting of her own parents and Jeff’s parents. Wendy is a self proclaimed Karaoke icon, who loves coffee shops, traveling when she can and time with friends and family.
When my oldest son and husband went through a Father/Son mentoring program called Champion Tribes created by pastor and author Jeff Henderson, I heard that his wife, Wendy, also did a similar group with their daughter. So I asked her to mentor me as I began a mother/daughter group for me and my daughter Addi, who was 13 at the time. Wendy met with me and shared her two-year journey with her daughter Jesse and their group of moms and daughters.
Wendy’s meetings with me sharing her wisdom on topics to cover led to a special, treasured year of monthly group meetings with Addi and a group of moms and daughters.
Our Cherished Group played games, discussed topics, prayed together, and even took a trip to the beach. This year was crucial in my ability to connect with Addi and our relationship continues to flourish because of Cherished Circles. As a counselor of adolescents, I have seen so many issues that could have been resolved by intentional mother-daughter time and heart-to-heart conversations. Wendy’s wisdom has been such a gift to me! I loved every moment of writing Cherished Circles with her and we are excited to give these ideas to moms and daughters seeking to grow together.”
Becca Gunyon MCC—I love being a wife and mom (to our five children ages 8-17). Our home is a hectic swirl filled with laughter. God’s whisper echoes in my mind reminding me, “treasure every moment, as they are flying by.” Nineteen years ago, I helped start The Way Counseling, where I have been mentoring and counseling adolescents. This year, I began working with students and leaders in a new role as one of theTransit Groups Directors at Gwinnett Church. Writing is one of my favorite avenues to share the love of Jesus, which led to self- publishing The Treasure and Choose: Life to the Fullest- 90 Days to Thinking and Living Great (student devotional)
