We believe in purposeful parenting. While we may stumble into truths as parents (and God fills the gaps), it’s important that we think of the adults we want our kids to become and work backwards.

In this podcast, we talk with Christian leaders about the principles of parenting they used and the mistakes they made.

Great show

We need more!

Invaluable and Timely

This is an outstanding podcast for those seeking healthy, whole-hearted, and purpose-driven relationships with their children. The questions and answers are incisive and fitting for the times we live in and the challenges that parents confront today. The traits that we all hope to instill in our children--confidence, a sense of purpose, an appreciation for their own unique gifts, and mutual love and respect--can be nurtured and demonstrated in the home every day. The lessons and experiences in this podcast help show us the way.
