Having children is hands-down one of the most life-changing and impactful events in any person's life. As blissful as it is to welcome a newborn into the world, for many people, it only goes downhill from there. We believe, however, that life can become more rich and beautiful as our family grows in age and numbers. We are so grateful for examples of marriages that become more romantic with each child, fathers and mothers that become more vibrant and energetic as they age, and families that, as a unit, live life to the fullest--blessing their communities as they do.

    Welcome back to the Now That We're a Family Podcast! Who is the "man in the arena"? Some may say it is the man that is disrupting the business world and its status quo and becoming somewhat of an icon amongst his peers...or is it the man that lays his life down for his family for the glory of God? Join us in this episode as we discuss!

    169: Mother of 10 shares Her Wisdom on nurturing respect, masculinity, and purity in her 7 Boys from Toddlers to the Teenage Years

    Mother of 10 shares Her Wisdom on nurturing respect, masculinity, and purity in her 7 Boys from Toddlers to the Teenage Years. I had the privilege of sitting down with my Aunt Marilee and answering your questions about parenting . . .  specifically boys! Her boys (and men) are sweet and thoughtful, with a strong streak of double backflips off the roof. Today we talk about teaching boys to care and protect others, as well as learning to let go and let them do things that scare us. You can watch the full interview in the clubhouse! Haven't joined us yet? Head over to Getitialldoneclub.com  and see how thousands of women have transformed their house from chaos to peacefully productive homes they cannot wait to get out of bed to! Join Top 5 Tuesday: https://www.nowthatwereafamily.com/top-5-tuesday-newletter

    166: What People Don't Tell You About Socialization and Homeschooling

    166: What People Don't Tell You About Socialization and Homeschooling

    Homeschooling is all we've ever known. In this episode we share what our experience was like interacting with "normal kids," how our parents equipped us for the "real world," and what we want most for our children by the time they leave the "nest." I am trying to think of more things I can put in quotations. I cannot think of any more at this time. Maybe I just "lack creativity."

So encouraging

I am an empty nesting mama of four. With two amazing grand babies. One of my married daughters and her husband were struggling and I happened upon your YouTube channel. God has used your channel to guide them and encourage them. They are still in the mending season of their marriage and mending they are, and I am seeing the mighty hand of God right smack dab in the center of it. I am so thankful for your channel and your real encouragement on real issues couples face today. I also love listening to your dear mom and her sweet encouragement. May God continue to bless you and your precious family.

Insightful

UPDATE: while I absolutely love your podcast, I do not appreciate the episode where Dale Partridge “casually” threw Roman Catholics under the bus, so to speak. I know how Elisha feels about “being placed in a box” and Dale just inaccurately placed Catholics in a box. I would invite him to further research the Roman Catholic faith. - Acting as though Catholics only depict Jesus in a feminine way (based on one or maybe two paintings he saw) is irresponsible. Still leaving my 5 star review, as this comment was voiced by your guest - however, it would be nice if future guests showed a bit more respect to their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ - regardless of denomination.

My all time favorite podcast. Found them in 2020 and went back and listened to each episode to catch up...Kind of sad that I’m all caught up and have to wait a whole week for a new episode now. Thank you for continuing to share your insights in marriage and parenting!

Thank you

Hi all! Your podcast has prepared me for a difficult season in life. Very timely.

I don't always agree theologically, but the Holy Spirit still ministers to me through you! A sure sign you are submitting this work to the Lord. Thank you for being a blessing!
