What people are saying about Intentional
"The Intentional Parenting International conference came at a pivotal point in parenting for us. We had been in a really hard and dark space, feeling hopeless, ill equipped, and exhausted. The Intentional Parenting Conference gave us practical parenting tools to apply that worked for each of our four, vastly different children. Intentional Parents pointed us back to the Word and back to Jesus, back to hope. It’s been three years and we still consistently go back to the Word, back to Jesus, and back to tools we learned from the conference when addressing new challenges. We are better parents because of Intentional Parenting. Our kids - who have always been loud and fun - are now more obedient, peace-filled, Jesus following world changers! Every parent should go to this conference - the earlier, the better. Thank you Phil and Diane. Thank you Jesus.”
The Stilp Family
“Intentional Parenting has given us greater tools to help disciple our children in living a passionate Jesus filled life and the courage to keep fighting for the hearts of our kids. Phil and Diane’s conference has helped us step more deeply into the spiritual lives of our kids while also giving practical ideas in areas of encouragement, discipline and purpose. This biblical conference has been incredibly helpful for us as parents as we raise kids in the 21st century.”

What pastors are saying about Intentional
"Our church leaders have been blown away by the practical, Biblical, and encouraging content that Phil and Diane share during their Intentional Parenting Conference. It's exactly what the families with young children in our community need. To help parents get there, our elders decided to cover much of the cost in order to make it easily affordable for all to attend. We saw this as a worthwhile investment that will save us time and energy down the road navigating family challenges. We hosted one conference and immediately booked another one for those who couldn't make it. We want everyone to go through it- single, married without children, with children, and empty nesters! There's something for everyone to learn as we seek to raise the next generation of passionate Jesus followers."
Lead Pastor of 26 West Church (Portland, OR)
"Phil and Diane Comer have proven themselves to be an invaluable resource for the Church. It is a rare thing to find people who have sustained their integrity throughout a life of fruitful ministry and have raised children who are all followers of Jesus. Thankfully, by offering their wisdom through the Intentional Parenting materials and conferences, the Comer's are providing a much needed voice in the church!"
Lead Pastor of Colossae Church (Portland, OR) Author of "Deep + Simple, Better Off Without Jesus and Losing Your Religion"
“My wife and I have admired Phil and Diane for years. They are a beautiful example of what it truly means to be Spirit-led parents and grandparents. Now, as they step out in this wonderful, God-honoring ministry to other parents, it’s a joy to see the fruit. We are incredibly inspired by this godly couple and know whoever reads this book will be empowered personally by their long-term and faithful example."
Evangelist and Author
“I’ve known Phil and Diane from their first date. Their walk with God has been pristine. Their marriage is rock solid. Their children walk with God and serve Him wholeheartedly. The principles in this book are based on Scripture and the applications are clear and helpful. I pray that it will help many families who want to bring up godly children and want to know how to do it from a godly, thoughtful, loving, and wise couple.”
