Our passion is building faithful families - yours and ours.

God has blessed our family with a wonderful story. He has filled our lives with many adventures, challenges, and kiddos. Everything has not gone the way we planned, but we have confidence that nothing has happened outside of His plan for our family.

We want to share more about how God has worked and continues to work in our lives. Our hope is to honor our Lord by talking about His work and greatness in our lives.

In case we have not met yet, we are Nathan and Nina. We have over twenty years of marriage under our belts and six kiddos under our roof.

We are followers of Jesus. We value family, friends, faith, freedom and fun.

    NN004 - Our Story

    In this episode we are spending some time telling you about our story. We share bits and pieces from our college years, early married life, and life overseas.

    As we share more about our life and the lessons we are learning today, we thought it would be good to give you some insights into our past.

    We believe it is important to share your story. You might say, "But my story is not interesting or important." Don't believe that lie!

    God has molded and crafted your story so that you can encourage others who are walking through the valleys and up the mountains that you have already walked.

    NN003 - God Always Keeps His Promises

    NN003 - God Always Keeps His Promises

    “God always keeps His promises” is a family motto that we have repeated often for many years. We started saying this phrase after God fulfilled a very special promise to us many years ago. Listen to end of this podcast to hear all the fun details!

    God's Word is filled with promises. Depending on who you ask, there are anywhere between 3,000 and 7,000 promises in the Bible.

    The following list is just a few of them:
    Romans 10:9-10

 - SALVATION
    Psalm 103:12 - THE REMOVAL OF SIN

    John 14:16 - THE HOLY SPIRIT

    Matthew 4:19 - PURPOSE AND DIRECTION

    Matthew 11:28 - REST

    James 1:5 - WISDOM
    Matthew 6:33 - PROVISION
    Psalm 84:11 - NO GOOD THING WILL BE WITHHELD
    1 Corinthians 10:13 - OVERCOMING TEMPTATION

    John 3:16, 1 John 2:25 - ETERNAL LIFE

    John 14:3 - AN ETERNAL HOME

    Revelation 12:4

4 - AN END TO DEATH AND SADNESS

    2 Timothy 3:12, Matthew 5:10-12 - PERSECUTION
    
Hebrews 12:7 - DISCIPLINE

    One of the most important promises that God gave us is that a Redeemer would come and defeat the problem of sin. Sin impacts all of us. We are so glad that God kept that promise!

    NN002 - Remembering God's Faithfulness When We Are Anxious

    NN002 - Remembering God's Faithfulness When We Are Anxious

    Christ commands us not to be anxious (Matthew 6:25). He reminds us that we more valuable than the grass of the fields and the birds of the air.

    But if we are being very honest, it is so easy to be consumed with our worries and anxieties. It is challenging to wait on the Lord when it feels like the work is beating us up and keeping us down. When we are hard-pressed, we need to run to God's Word.

    The Bible is filled with many scriptures that talk about waiting on Him. The list below is not exhaustive.
    Lamentations 3:25 - GOD’S GOODNESS
    Psalm 27:14 - STRENGTH AND COURAGE
    Isaiah 40:31 - RENWAL
    Psalm 130:5-6 - HOPE
    Psalm 33:20-22 - HELP AND PROTECTION

    In addition to running to God's Word, we should remember times from our past when God has shown up. Our Ebenezer stones, our "reminder stones", help us keep our eyes focused on God's faithfulness in the past and are a reminder that God will continue to be faithful in the future.

    NN001 - Hearing God's Voice When The World Is Chaotic

    NN001 - Hearing God's Voice When The World Is Chaotic

    Does God still speak to people? And if so, how do we hear His still quiet voice when the world around us is loud and chaotic?


    In this episode, we will be talking about hearing God's still quiet voice. Why is this topic important? Because life dishes out challenges and obstacles.


    Our family recently experienced one of these life altering challenges - the loss of a job. We started asking the typical questions:
    - How are we going to provide for our family?
    - Why is this happening to us?
    - God, what are you up to?


    We will share about our initial reactions after hearing the news, a story from the bible (Samuel's encounter with God's "quiet" voice in 1 Samuel 19), and advice for anyone who is wanting to hear God speak.


    Let's keep building faithful families - yours and ours!
    Nathan and Nina
