About is a passion project started by a young family in Utah to promote strong family values and helpful tools backed by research. Tanya Lindquist is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (therapist) who works with people of all ages but specializes in working with children. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a Master’s Degree in Social Work. Her husband Kevin helps with the website and also has an educational background in recreation management and youth leadership.

After the birth of their first child, Annie, Tanya put a pause on client work to focus on being a mom, but quickly realized that she has a strong passion for continued research and sharing the knowledge she gained from her education and experiences as a therapist. With some prodding from her husband she was convinced to start writing and started to remember the childhood dream she shared with her best friend of being an author.

Ultimately, we started FamilyNinjas to build a community of people who want to learn more and contribute to a strong family culture. We believe that the family is central to the success of any society, but more importantly the success of any individual person.

We do not honestly know where this will take us, but we are seeking input from trusted friends and advisors and working hard to deliver content that could become an “a-ha” moment for just one reader. If nothing else comes from this – we hope we can at least provide a small perspective on a family related topic that could help somebody make their life or their children’s life just a little bit better.

We’ve been blessed with strong families, each with their own unique challenges, who have helped us become who we are today. We hope to pass along a little bit of our experience, and a lot of the knowledge we’ve gained through our education and Tanya’s professional efforts as a therapist.
