    Faith In Parents #89 | Ungrateful Kids

    This one's a collaboration! Our friends over at the Keswick Convention Podcast had Ed join them for an episode their and we just had to share it with you!

The truth is that parents have to be grateful themselves! Ed joins James Cary and Rachel Redeemed exploring how this works out in our messy families lives, along with comments from Anna Putt and Girma Bishaw.

    You can have a look at Keswick's publications and further resources here.

Fab!

Love this podcast. I have just listened to the ‘parenting the 8-11 year olds’. Just brilliant! Thank you for the honesty of the participants - really enjoyed listening!

Love this podcast!

I’ve really benefited from getting to listen in to godly parents sharing their wisdom, being honest about their failures and showing how God’s grace can transform families. I love the podcasts slots aimed at kids too-really accessible.

aacymru ,

Excellent podcast

Excellent podcast for encouraging, inspiring and challenging Christian parents.
It’s not at all preachy - great to hear about other parents struggles - but covers a huge range of issues that we deal with as we try and disciple our kids in a busy, messy world
