60 episodes

It all started in 2016 with Lisa Clark’s book, “Raising Sinners,” but she knew there was more to say. The Raising Sinners podcast tackles all the topics and questions parents have about raising their kids! Lisa and her co-host Chrissie Dunham, and the occasional special guest, cover it all: sibling rivalry, dating, and social media, but also discuss raising children who don’t fit the mold and even that pesky “mama guilt.”

While sin can be fun in the moment, it’s never funny. Lisa and Chrissie walk this line well, finding light and laughter though the difficulties of parenting, but always having pointed, relatable, and reverent discussions that focus on God’s word and what the “manual” has to say about our parenting.

Lisa and Chrissie have been podcasting together since 2018 through their other show, The Wonder Podcast. You can connect with them on Instagram @talkwithchrissieandlisa.

    Christmas, The Story that Never Gets Old

    Christmas, The Story that Never Gets Old

    It’s the MOST WONDERFUL time of the year!!! It’s Christmastime! And we’re celebrating hard over here at Raising Sinners!
     
    The story of Jesus’ birth seems to come alive every year at this time as parents, grandparents, friends, and family tell the story from Luke chapter 2.  Every time we open God’s word to read the account, it seems like it refreshes itself and becomes anew.  That’s the truth of God’s word, isn’t it? It’s always fresh and comes alive.  And the Christmas story is no different. 
     
    By gathering to tell the story, you’re giving Jesus a seat at your table.  You’re inviting Him into your celebration and making much of Him, the Guest of honor.  As we tell the story, we’re being faithful to the generations behind us who are depending on us to repeat and repeat the message of Christ’s birth to redeem mankind.  Oh, what a story! Oh, what a Savior!
     
    We wish you and yours a blessed Christmas and a VERY Happy 2024!
     
    As always, thanks for listening! We appreciate you!

    Make this a December to Remember

    December is here and we are excited over here at the Raising Sinners Podcast! We celebrate BIG!!! On this episode you’ll hear us share some favorite memories of days gone by, traditions we began with our own children and fun things we continue to do with our grands. 
     
    For the Christian parent, the month of December is full of opportunities to point our children and community to Christ.  So, we want to be intentional and prepared! Feeling wheels off already? Too many obligations? Take a breath.  Refocus.  Pull out your Bible and start drawing near to Jesus. 
     
    So often we forget the guest of honor! Remember who this month is all about in the first place! It’s Jesus! Whisper His name.  Invite Him in.  Leave space at your table.  And celebrate big! The Savior has come!

    Your Son Can Trust God, Answering the What-Ifs with Katy Boatman

    Your Son Can Trust God, Answering the What-Ifs with Katy Boatman

    Today our guest, Katy Boatman, chats with us about her new devotional for boys, “You Can Trust.” We were fascinated listening to Katy discuss how she landed on this writing project.  (You’ll have to listen to find out…☺)
     
    Preteen boys have a lot of thoughts spinning through their curious minds each day.  But too often, their “what-if” questions are rooted in fear and anxiety as they try to find their way in a world that doesn’t always make sense.  This easy-to-read devotional by Katy Boatman offers daily encouragement and truths to combat that worry.  Each of the 100 devotions, plus interactive activity days, (which sound super fun!) rallies boys to trust the God who has all the answers.  They’ll explore questions such as:
     
    What if I don’t feel strong enough?
    What if I’m scared?
    What if my team loses?
    What if God changes His mind about me?
     
    “You Can Trust” offers boys tangible reminders that they can trust God with all their what-ifs and questions in life.
     
    Katy lives in Nashville, is passionate about mentoring the next generation and authored a devotional book, “You Can Rest,” for girls which was a finalist in the category of “Young People’s Literature for the ECPA’S 2023 CHRISTIAN BOOK AWARD. “Check it out, too!

    Resources to help your children grow in their faith with Steph Thurling

    Today we are doing things a little different! Lisa recently joined Steph Thurling, the Executive Director of Christian Parenting, on her podcast THE CHRISTIAN PARENTING PODCAST to share her heart for resources for kids to grow their faith and her new devotional MY TIME WITH GOD written with her friends from our partner ministry, First15.  
     
    In a recent survey done by Christian Parenting and First15, parents gave an overwhelming response requesting tools for their kiddos.  And MY TIME WITH GOD was born!
     
    MY TIME WITH GOD is a devltional written for children ages 6-12 to help encourage and equip them to establish a lifetime of learning and walking with God thorugh daily scripture reading and reflection.  
     
    Over the course of 20 days, MY TIME WITH GOD will guide your kids (or grandkids!) thorugh some of the basic principles of the Christian faith like, why do I spend time with God? What is prayer? Who is the Holy Spirit? And so much more!
     
    Go to ChristianParenting.org for more info and to purchase your copy of MY TIME WITH GOD!

    Navigating the Teenage Dating Years with James McKinney

    Navigating the Teenage Dating Years with James McKinney

    We cannot contain our excitement for you to hear this conversation.  James Mckinney joins us this episode to talk about his new (and first!) book, Navigating the Teenage Dating Years.  We all have thoughts about our own dating paths, and for the most part, don’t want to replicate those with our own kids.  ☺  So, what to do? Go with the culture? Do what everyone else is doing? Tell them to wait until they turn 16 and turn them loose? 
     
    James Mckinney is a father of two teenagers and husband of twenty-three years to his wife, Melissa.  He holds a Masters degree in Theological Studies from Liberty University and serves as the Minister of Adults at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Prosper, TX.  His passion is to see marriages flourish and families walk in the reality and truth of God’s word.  
     
    This book covers biblical principles for dating! What? The Bible says something about dating? The Bible says something about every aspect of our life and gives us principles to live by.  When we read and study His word, we can apply these godly principles to our lives.  And dating is NO exception! You’ll gain so much insight into the what’s, when’s and how’s of dating as you read and ponder James’ wisdom on this teen rite of passage.
