    S5 Ep3: WHAT IF... I'm the church leader?

    S5 Ep3: WHAT IF... I'm the church leader?

    Rachel Turner, Lucy Rycroft and Rhianne O'Rourke share about how we can parent our children and teens for faith when we (or our spouses) are involved in the unique parenting context of church leadership. The conversation will also be helpful to those of us who aren't church leaders, as we support those who are.

Wonderful!

Can not recommend highly enough! A breath of fresh air and so needed and welcome. Has really given me confidence and super simple tools in parenting for faith, and helped me realised that I don’t need to be super-spiritual but can just be myself. Plus, Rachel always makes me laugh! Thank you Rachel and team for all you are doing... so valuable and a lifeline resource.

Fun and informative .

As always Rachel uses humour and wisdom to help us navigate parenting for faith. Love the different elements in each podcast! A 20 minutes well spent listening to these podcasts.

Exactly what I’ve been waiting for

So great to have Rachel’s wisdom, fun and humour in a podcast. I feel like I learned multiple things from each episode and came away with something really practical I could try out with my children. Love that it’s just 20 minutes and am really looking forward to new episodes coming out. Thank you!
