My name is Christy Rivers. I am a wife and a mother of two.  I work as a pediatrician at The Corvallis Clinic, in Oregon.  My house of worship is Grace City Church, though obviously God travels with me wherever I go.

What Kids Need: The Truth

How do we make decisions and how do we live a life when we argue about everything, opinions as well as facts?

When we look back, a year from now, 5 years from now, I think there will be experiences in our lives that came about because God prepared us



I would love to use this blog to answer general parenting questions from the perspective of a Christian pediatrician.  This is not a substitute for talking to your own doctor about specific questions in regards to your child's health.

Thanks for submitting!
