Exactly what I need as a young Christian dad

Danny and John encapsulate the best gold
nuggets of Jesus’ gospel into bite-size snacks you can listen to in just a few minutes. You’ve got kids.. sometimes 10 mins is all you have! Highly recommend.

Heading on this parenting journey - keeping the center of our parenting with God with practical help. Loved the one on what our daughters need.
