Single parent

I love the podcast. Very great information but it’s mostly given for children being raised by both parents. I’ve heard a few episodes that are for single mothers but I would find it amazing if you can speak on parenting with only one exhausted mother/father that usually turns angry very quickly. If parenting with two roles is very hard can you imagine doing it alone and trying to raise them Godly as you are also growing in faith.

God’s Word is the foundation

I just subscribed to the parenting podcast. I haven’t even listened but upon reading the reviews I could easily see that those,,, who hate Gods Word and also dislike those who live by it. Which I am in that category. I rarely write reviews but I wanted to encourage those who are behind these godly podcast. Do not be discouraged over the critics. It’s not you they hate, but the God whom we serve and His Word. Be strong and courageous. Truth has been attacked since the Garden of Eden, and will to be attacked. Read the last chapter, He wins every time🙏🤗👏
