    Faith In Parents #139 | "You’re not going out wearing that!"

    Our daughters, in particular, are under pressure to look good, to appear perfect on their socials and to live for the approval of others. That is so far from the better story that their Creator offers them.

    Join us as we chat to Emma Owen. Her story starts as a 16 year old in the work place being treated as a woman when she was actually just a girl. She now spends her time telling young people in the classroom to make sure they don't repeat her mistake on their social media feeds. As we navigate short skirts, plunging tops, make-up and nails, we hear that there is a better conversation we can have with our children than just rules and rebukes.

Wiltshire parent ,

Loving the last two series

Always great content but last two series on “Identity” and “Autism in Church” have been really excellent. As a parent of an autistic 8 year old, this is absolute gold!

JoulesK ,

Every episode is a ‘return-to’. So much wisdom and truth presented so humbly (and amusingly).
