Encouraging and So so good
Love it so much. The biblical worldview being discussed and made understandable on my level is amazing. I’m so thankful for these ladies sharing their knowledge and bringing in other people in our Christian community who speak truth and inform me and guide me in things that I don’t know all the info about as I navigate the wild adventure that is raising a kiddo in this world. So thankful for God and these ladies faithfulness for this ministry and podcast!
More based on opinion than scripture
The BLM episode actually tells you how public schools are bad and aiming to indoctrinate your children. Their arguments against apologizing to those you have wronged aren’t based on scripture but on political viewpoints. It is extremely biased, and again, I didn’t hear any scripture to back up their arguments.
Such a great resource for moms and even dads! They cover many topics that are hard to talk about and hard to find legitimate resources for.
