Pastor Ted CunninghamTed Cunningham is a pastor in Branson, MO. His story is that he realized that he was a “vanity parent.” He wanted his kids to be popular and successful, but after seeing how other parents promote their kids perfection and achievements on Facebook, he realized that there are trophy parents. Intentionally, he wrote the book, Trophy Child: Saving Parents from Performance, Preparing Children for Something Greater than Themselves. He’s had a little bit of defensive reaction from parents who think the really bad parents are the ones who neglect their children. He says he’s at the other end of the spectrum. He is passionate about how letting your kids fail helps them learn… and how not being a trophy parent improves your marriage. Ted’s newest book, Trophy Child: Saving Parents from Performance, Preparing Children for Something Greater Than Themselves is available now.

Psalms follow the events they were written about. Proverbs are placed in the time frame in which they were compiled. The life of Christ is woven into one moving story. And Paul’s letters to the young churches in the first century are integrated into the book of Acts.
