Have you ever wondered why God included certain stories in the Bible? The Bible is meant to show us Jesus and his glorious gospel, yet often we get stuck focusing only on Bible heroes or bad guys with our kids. In each episode, Alicia Yoder storytells a passage from the Bible, looks at the choices that were made and how God is at work, and then shows how God does the same for us--only better--in Jesus.

Keep fighting the good fight!!

This is a great podcast! It has prompted many enjoyable family discussions. Our kids absolutely love Finn (he is their favorite part of the show) and they enjoy hearing content and questions from a child’s inquisitive perspective. Please keep the episodes coming! 💛

Okay, but not great.

Finn mumbles and is a FISH? Not necessary. LOVE the idea of a kid you're teaching hosting the podcast with you . But the lack of enunciation skills and weird ocean plotline makes this a *weird* listen.
It's good content, Bible-wise, though.

Needs recast

We wanted to like this podcast, but there was a catch. Content wise, it’s great, but we had to quit listening because of the kid who voices the character of Finn. For some reason, adults think it’s cute to cast kids who can barely speak, who lisp, and are inarticulate. This child mumbles so much that my kids were having trouble understanding the episodes.
