Your kids are spreading their wings. Are you ready? In Fledge, counselor, educator, and mother Brenda L. Yoder helps Christian parents navigate the many transitions of the launching years. How do you parent tweens at home and young adults away from home at the same time? What’s a good balance between boundaries and freedom? How can you pray for your fledgling youth? And what do you do with all that mom grief? Your job as a parent isn’t over; it’s just changing. Equip yourself with biblical wisdom for this season of transition in your family life. Learn the patterns to avoid and the habits to pursue. Launching your children can be scary, and some days it might make you crazy. But you’ve been raising them to do just this. Fledge will help you release your children into the future that God has planned for them.

Review by: Carol Kent, author of He Holds My Hand - October 17, 2017
“How I wish this book was available before my child left the nest! Brenda L. Yoder has done a masterful job of describing decisions and strategies that will help you to transition to a good place while you learn to let go of your adult child. If you’re struggling with anxiety, grief, control issues, or boundaries, read this book. The “Building Up and Letting Go” section in each chapter will give you questions to ponder and prayers for the journey. I highly recommend this book!”
Review by: Rachel Gerber, author of Ordinary Miracles - October 17, 2017
“Part devotional, part Bible study, Brenda L. Yoder’s Fledge offers wise words to younger parents who are still in the throes of parenting. Here is a roadmap for launching children with grace.”
Review by: Jessie Clemence, author of I Could Use a Nap and a Million Dollars - September 26, 2017
“In just a few short years, our children will be moving on to college. As parents, we really want to prepare them (and ourselves!) well. Fledge is exactly what our family needs: a Christ-centered perspective of the future, with the biblical tools to approach the changes well. I’ll be recommending this book to all my friends in the same stage of life.”
Review by: Curt Weaver, pastor of children and youth, Portland (Ore.) Mennonite Church - September 26, 2017
“Hidden inside the celebrations of family life, the graduations, weddings, and milestones are the pain of loss that many of us experience as our children become independent adults and no longer need us in the same way. As with all grief, unless the story of its source has purpose and meaning, it can drag us down. In Fledge, Brenda L. Yoder gives us that purpose and meaning and sits with us in our pain.”
Review by: Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family - September 19, 2017
“At Focus on the Family, we often hear from families who are watching their kids graduate from high school and transition from childhood into the adult world. It can be a challenging time for moms in particular. In Fledge, Brenda L. Yoder provides sensitive, biblical wisdom for moms who want to help their kids launch well.”
