Hi from the Okanagan Valley!

Dear Troy & Ruth!
Thank you!
What a profound gift it is on so many levels, to listen and lean in as you both speak Truth with gentleness and exhortation—Christ in you, the Hope of Glory is evident in beautiful ways through what you say and how you say it. Holy Spirit-fruit is undeniable as you interact with each other too. Super encouraging for my man and I as we train up our 3 mini men (6,4,&2) in the fear and kindness of the Lord. Here’s our “ask Ruth&Troy” question... “Would you consider coming to stay with us as a family someday?”☺️ Okayyy, we have a guest cottage but it may not quite be comfortable for all 8 of you! Backyard tenting for the bigger guys? A gal can dream, right?😉
Just know we love ya and like so many around even all the globe no doubt, we feel as though we know you. Thrilled to be grafted into the same family of the Living God, by His grace and provision. Excited for season 2 of Foundations...👏🏼Encore!!

Setting Families Up With a Firm Foundation

Ruth and Troy Simons join together to share their wisdom and life experience as a couple, as parents and as Christians, in this podcast based on their book Foundations: 12 Biblical Truths to Shape a Family. Their discussions are not a "how to guide" on raising perfect children, step by step instructions on establishing silent fidget proof family times or the recipe for training up children or oneself in the ways of the Lord. Instead this podcast is honest conversations full of solid scriptural truths, relatable and practical content for all ages and stages found in a family, whether that be your nuclear family, small group, or friends. Listening to this (and reading along with the book) will make guiding your loved ones to have a firm foundation in Christ no longer overwhelming, daunting or impossible.

Biblical and Encouraging

I am a Christian wife and mom of two and I love Ruth’s books, her artwork and the message she brings. It is biblically based and so encouraging!
It’s so great to see that there is a podcast we can look forward to as well, as I believe God is working through Ruth and her family in an amazing and impacting way.
The world needs to hear messages like hers and I’m so glad to see that she is spreading her message through yet another platform, along with her husband.
I highly recommend her books, talks, and of course the beautiful paintings she does.

Thank you for all you both do!

Much love from up in Canada,

Shelley ♥︎
