    230. Your Family as a Team with Jeremy Pryor

    230. Your Family as a Team with Jeremy Pryor

    Western culture teaches us that the purpose of family is to launch us into individual success. But what if this family vision is radically broken? Jeremy Pryor joins me to share how he encountered the biblical vision of family as a multigenerational team on mission. We talk about the factors contributing to radical individualization in our society and practices for uniting the generations of your family around a mission.
     
    Jeremy met his wife April in Jerusalem in 1997 when they were students. They’ve spent the last 20 years building Team Pryor together. The have five kids: Kelsey, Jackson, Sydney, Elisa, and Kaira. They live in a multigenerational house with Jeremy parents and April’s mom in Fort Thomas, KY just a few miles from Cincinnati, Ohio. They’ve founded and lead several businesses and non-profits including Epipheo (a video production agency) Just Sew (a quilt shop), FamilyTeams.com (training content for families) 1000 Houses (a network of Cincinnati disciple-making households) and The Story-Formed Life (a discipleship training resource). For fun the Pryors study Hebrew, take groups to Israel (join us), enjoy deep conversation over great food and read Tolkien by firelight.

    229. Your Family Is Your Mission Field!

    229. Your Family Is Your Mission Field!

    As we begin a series highlighting families that are on mission to impact their world for the sake of Jesus, we want to start with the reminder that YOUR family is your first and greatest mission field!
     
    Jay walks through Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:18-20 and applies it to family life. He then highlights the following advice for “teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you”: lead yourself well, learn to apply the gospel to the trials and challenges of life, lean into the power of conversations vs. devotions, be intentional with a few routines, let your children see you struggle, doubt, and repent.

    228. Advice for Making a Growth Plan for This Summer

    228. Advice for Making a Growth Plan for This Summer

    Hopefully this summer allows you time to rest, relax, and recuperate. But it also provides a season to grow, improve your walk with Jesus, your health, or your relationships. This week Jay provides a Summer Growth Worksheet as well as a set of reminders on what sets us up for successful transformation. Remember the following:
     
    1. If you have too many goals, you’re more likely to fail across the board.
     
    2. An end of summer goal should be challenging, but reasonable.
     
    3. Your goal should consist of daily (or multiple) very doable baby steps.
     
    4. Reward yourself every day you take your daily step.
     
    5. Find a partner or family member to share your plan.
     
    6. Success gives momentum for success.

    227. How Extended Family Dynamics Affect a Marriage

    227. How Extended Family Dynamics Affect a Marriage

    Most of us grossly underestimate how much our extended family is going to affect our marriage. Jay walks through a number of ways your childhood home and extended family shape how you walk into your marriage. He lists several situations where extended families impact your marriage throughout the years. And finally he gives a list of questions to help you process and even thrive through your extended family circumstances.
     
    Questions for couples to consider:
     
    - What are the situations we need to address and repent of?
    - In which relationships do we need to develop firm boundaries?
    - Which circumstances do we simply need to accept as one of the particular crosses that Jesus would have us bear as we serve one another and our family?
    - What are the opportunities we see to build on what we have and grow in fruitfulness as a family?
    - If we could dream, and God would help us to be a part of a multigenerational family that he would use to bless the world, in what ways would we like to see that happen?

    225. Communication with Matt and Jenny Price

    In polls of mental health professionals, communication problems were cited as the most common factor that leads to divorce. On the other hand, couples with strong communication skills grow deeper in love and friendship even while weathering major storms. Matt and Jenny Price join us to share their wisdom and insight from over 30 years of marriage and 25 years of counseling couples at Covenant Fellowship Baptist Church.
