Front Porch with the Fitzes, is a weekly chinwag featuring author Elyse Fitzpatrick and two of her three kids, Jessica Thompson and Joel Fitzpatrick. Sometimes some unexpected folks might even drop by and sit for a spell. Every week they’ll jibber about family life, things that interest them in culture or news, and what they’re learning about the Lord. Imagine sitting on the front porch of your ol’ Kentucky home, listening to three slightly off-kilter believers talk about life, do a lot of laughing at each other and everyone else…and then, of course, there’s always the bluegrass music playing in the background.

Real Christian/Family Fellowship

This is a good podcast if you're trying to grow out of a fear-based-religion into a grace-centered-gospel. It consists of a family (that appears to actually be fucntional and enjoy being around each other) that spend about half an hour or so cutting up and just having real fellowship. It is very laid back. There is then a gospel centered devotional at the end. This podcast is recommended for anyone who is making the necessary transition from fear to grace.

Used to listen. Now too political.

Used to love this. And still believe the Fitzies are a sweet family. Jessica's laugh is infectious and truly uplifting. Funny for sure. Just had to stop when I realized how political and and one sided they were being. (I blame California.) This show turned into bullying. I’m out.
