Adult parenting

Your ministry is Aa godsend since I’ve been searching for help in intentionally trying to interact with my adult children. We were faithful churchgoers prior to our children’s births, raised them up in a “solid” evangelical, Bible teaching church. They both walked away from it.
Your podcasts have been covering everything we’re experiencing!
Thanks so much!!

Too short on content

The episodes are very short and move one to more than one topic in each one, usually not pertaining to what the title of the episode is. I would prefer a longer format where they get deep into the issues.
