Welcome to Values-Driven!

We’re Marc and Cindy Carrier, Kingdom Christians whose desire is to equip and encourage Christian parents as you strive to make the most of every opportunity in every area of life–for the glory of God and the expansion of His Kingdom.

Of course, you’ll want to get to know us better. Here is a good place to start.

Although we no longer blog regularly, you can visit our blog and read past posts to see inside our family (and past Kenya mission/ministry) and hopefully find some encouragement for your Christian parenting and homeschooling journey. For more on the ministry aspect of what we’ve done in Kenya, visit Kingdom-Driven Ministries. And, for the curious, you can see what we’ve been doing since Kenya at www.CarrierFamilyDoodles.com.

Once upon a time (back in 2006), we wrote The Values-Driven Family as a practical guide for parents on how to improve time management and home management, and more effectively disciple their children by emphasizing “core values,” or, “the values that God values:” the character traits that should mark ever-increasing Christlikeness.

We followed that up with a discipleship manual (Values-Driven Discipleship) and many other books, including The Growing Homeschool, Home Sweet Home: Creating a Joyful Home Atmosphere, and The Eternal Benefits of Circle Time. After spending several seasons speaking on topics related to parenting, homeschooling, home management, and Christian living on the mid-west homeschool convention circuit, we also created audio bundles with some of that content. Finally, we re-published some classic works in economical bundles in our Values Driven Homeschool Library. That’s just some of what you will find here.

While you’re here, check out our free downloads–charts & helps for parenting, free ebooks, and more. Sign up for our occasional e-newsletter. When you do, you’ll receive downloadable free gifts (ebooks, audios, book excerpts, and more), all designed to help you be more effective and productive in the home.


Read a variety of articles and book excerpts that are designed to inform and encourage.


We’re distributors for Beeyoutiful natural supplements & wellness products and offer  discounted pricing. Just drop us an email to order–see details here.
