    Episode 32: Building Your Parenting Toolbox

    Episode 32: Building Your Parenting Toolbox

    I love tools. Home improvement projects are often just excuses for me to add to my tool collection. But tools are much more than collectors items, they have particular purpose. Good tools help us to accomplish tasks more effectively and efficiently. I have found tools helpful in all areas of my life where I have responsibility. Figuratively I have separate tool boxes as a pastor, as a parent, as a husband, and in other areas of my life. In this episode of the Ordinary Christian Podcast, I share ten tools that I have found to be indispensable in my parenting toolbox.

    Episode 30: A Conversation on Purity, Pop Music, and the Pornification of American Culture

    Episode 30: A Conversation on Purity, Pop Music, and the Pornification of American Culture

    On this episode of the Ordinary Christian Podcast, I sit down with two of the other pastors at Malvern Hill and discuss popular music, Netflix, and the degradation of pop culture. We talk music, dance, and movies. In the most surprising (and disappointing) twist of the podcast so far, Adam compares Boyz II Men to Florida-Georgia Line.

    Parents, pay attention to this podcast. You need to know what your kids are watching and listening to and, in some cases, you need to interfere with their entertainment choices.

    Episode 29–Murder, Grace, American Ninja Warrior, and Family Life With Sean Clayton

    Episode 29–Murder, Grace, American Ninja Warrior, and Family Life With Sean Clayton

    Sean Clayton is a former American Ninja Warrior competitor, a victim of violence, a U. S. Army veteran, an obstacle course competitor, husband, dad, and Christian. Join us today as Sean shares his story of pain and redemption. He also shares how his dad stuck by his side in his darkest days and how Christ freed him from his sin, anger, and pain. Along the way we get a couple of training tips, talk about half-caff coffee and the absolute value of hot Krispy Kreme donuts.

    Sean’s story is incredible. I hope you will listen in and share this episode with someone you know who might be in a dark place today.

    For more information about Sean you can look him up on Instagram. You can also see his home gym, The Woodshed, (which I try not to covet) here.

    Episode 28: A Godly Man Might Not Be What You Think

    Episode 28: A Godly Man Might Not Be What You Think

    The primary marker of godly men is a commitment to godliness. Godly men may be office workers, crane operators, weight lifters, or duck hunters, but they don’t have to be any of those things. First and foremost, a godly man loves Jesus and takes responsibility for his family.
