Raising kids isn’t easy, but the most helpful advice can come from right next door. Join host Ivy Lassiter as she draws on her experience working with families and practical tips from some of the best experts – parents who’ve been there, too.
Tammy & Matt: Lean Into the Gap
In this episode Matt and Tammy vulnerably share about their parenting experiences and how they have seen God work through it. They have 3 kids - two are adulting and the 3rd is in high school. God compelled them to create a gap year program in Colorado with the purpose of launching new adults into the world who can thrive with the purpose and responsibilities. It’s an amazing story of how God brings all things together for the good of those who love Him!
