 Do you feel FULLY ALIVE? Do you laugh from your belly and sob from the depths of your heart?

Being FULLY ALIVE means honoring the full range of our feelings without numbing parts of ourselves. 

Living FULLY ALIVE means embracing our imperfections.


Our children: we love them SO much.

There is nothing like parenting when it comes to being wonderful and maddening at the same moment.

Kerry Stutzman founded Head & Heart Parents to help parents navigate the complicated maze of raising emotionally healthy children.

If you are an imperfect parent who loves your kids, this is the place for you.


Kerry’s favorite audience is parents; her favorite topic is parenting. She entertains with real-life stories, touches hearts and teaches practical strategies for strengthening family closeness.

Parents find themselves inspired to BE the parents they want their kids to have.

If you are looking for a speaker, either in-person (someday!) or virtual, find out if Kerry is the right fit for your event.
