About Family Wings
We stand for strong, gospel-centered families with equipped and empowered parents who take the lead in the discipleship and training of their kids. We support families by providing one-on-one coaching, consulting and resources that address common issues that families face today, both at home and in the educational journey of their kids.
Family Wings Directors Glen & Ellen Schuknecht
Glen and Ellen have been married for 40 years and live in Austin, Texas near their three married children and eleven grandchildren. When they aren’t playing soccer or building Legos with their grandkids, Glen and Ellen work together to support families and faith through their roles at Veritas Academy, Christ Community Church and through Family Wings, LLC.
Ellen’s experience includes over 35 years of working with families in both public and private education. With experience ranging from public high school to private elementary schools, Ellen has coached and counseled thousands of parents to equip their kids to thrive not only educationally, but also emotionally and most importantly, spiritually. Ellen currently serves as the “Director of Family Ministries” at Veritas Academy where she mentors parents, teachers, and students on a daily basis. Ellen also does private one-on-one parent coaching, group consulting and speaking through Family Wings. Learn more about her services here.
After spending more than 35 years at the front of a public high school math classroom, Glen moved to Veritas where he serves as a math teacher, basketball coach and “Director of Student Discipline and Discipleship”. He loves that he now has the opportunity to guide students not only in math, but also on their faith journey. Glen and Ellen are both Certified SYMBIS Assessment Facilitators, a program through which they mentor engaged couples within their church.
