    Episode 240 - Overcoming Fears & Trusting God After Losing a Baby with Laney Rene

    Episode 240 - Overcoming Fears & Trusting God After Losing a Baby with Laney Rene

    In today’s episode, I sit down with Laney Rene, a wife & young mom who walked through a painful season when she lost her baby boy at 17 weeks pregnant.
    Like anyone would, Laney has struggled with fear, especially considering she is pregnant again! The Enemy has used lies that have caused her to turn her eyes from Jesus to herself - and through mental attacks, led her to question if she’s doing something wrong that will hurt the unborn baby she is carrying now.
    But Laney’s story doesn’t end there. She’s allowed Jesus to carry her through and remind her of who she REALLY is… a daughter of the King!
    Listen in as Laney shares a message of hope and encouragement for anyone who may be struggling to answer the question “Who am I?” and reminds us that Jesus can redeem all things for His glory.

    Episode 239 - Raising Teens Part 3: Faith & Growing Up in the Church with My Teenage Son Hudson Weber

    Episode 239 - Raising Teens Part 3: Faith & Growing Up in the Church with My Teenage Son Hudson Weber

    In this conversation (to wrap up our 3 Episode Series on Parenting Teens), I sit down with a teenager to hear their spiritual journey and to talk about the pressures of growing up in today’s world.
    To go another layer deeper, he’s a pastor’s kid.
    Oh, and did I mention he’s my son?
    Hudson Weber is a music-loving 17-year-old with wisdom beyond his years. Yes, I might be biased!
    From his early reluctance to stand in the spotlight to his transformation into a passionate guitar player leading worship, this episode uncovers the layers behind the title 'pastor's kid.'
    Listen as Hudson and I talk about the complexities of faith, family, and the pressures of growing up in the church.
    I hope as you listen, you’re reminded that behind every role we play in life, there's a personal story waiting to be told.

    Episode 238 - Raising Teens Part 2: Tips for Parents of Teens from Therapist Mary Weber

    Episode 238 - Raising Teens Part 2: Tips for Parents of Teens from Therapist Mary Weber

    Attention Parents of Teenagers! This is part 2 of a 3 part series on parenting teens. If you missed week 1, listen to it here.
    According to the CDC, mental health problems in youth often go hand-in-hand with other health and behavioral risks like increased risk of drug use, experiencing violence, and higher risk sexual behaviors.
    In part 2 of our 3 part series on raising teens, licensed therapist Mary Weber is back to discuss what issues are most common with the young patients she sees (from anxiety to busy schedules), how to teach our teens resiliency instead of rescuing them, and ways we can come alongside our teens as parents, mentors, teachers and youth leaders.
    As always, Mary approaches these topics with kindness, empathy, grace and truth while sharing practical tips you can implement immediately. Plus, she gives a pep talk to parents who may want (and need) to have a difficult conversation with their kids!
    Mary Weber has been a licensed therapist for 36 years and is based out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She has been well trained and educated, has a mountain of experience, & a deep love for the Lord.
    If you are the parent of a teenager, a youth leader in your church or if there are teens in your life who you love, don’t miss part 2 of this 3 part series.

    Episode 237 - Raising Teens Part 1: Their Faith Beyond Youth Group with Researcher Kara Powell

    Episode 237 - Raising Teens Part 1: Their Faith Beyond Youth Group with Researcher Kara Powell

    Attention Parents of Teenagers! We’re kicking off a 3 week podcast series on parenting teens.
    Most typical youth ministries today produce nice, obedient kids who behave themselves - and then once they leave home, they leave the church and the faith.
    What are we (as the Church and as parents) doing wrong?
    I sit down to discuss this with Kara Powell, chief of leadership formation at Fuller Seminary, executive director of the Fuller Youth Institute (FYI), and professor of youth and family ministry. And what might qualify her the most is that she is a mom of 3 kids, ages 23, 21 and 17.
    Kara loves youth. She loves the church. And she also loves researching issues facing parents and youth leaders so she can help us better serve the next generation so they can become adults who hold fast to the Truth.
    This episode isn’t filled with Kara’s opinions, it’s filled with insightful data that can help us as parents.
    If you are the parent of a youth, a youth leader in your church or if there are youth in your life who you love, don’t miss part 1 of this 3 part series.

    Episode 236 - Unpacking Your Baggage (especially as leaders or pastors) with Ike Miller

    Episode 236 - Unpacking Your Baggage (especially as leaders or pastors) with Ike Miller

    Today's conversation is about baggage.
    We all have it.
    Oftentimes it’s heavy and difficult to carry.
    More than that, if we don’t deal with our baggage, after time it will catch up with us.
    But not only us, if we don’t deal with our baggage as business leaders, pastors, or even as parents, it’ll impact the people around us.
    How do we deal with our baggage? That’s what today’s conversation is all about!
    I sit down with author and pastor, Ike Miller, to unpack the topic of baggage.
    Ike is married to Sharon Hodde Miller and together they pastor Bright City Church in Durham, North Carolina.
    Grab a copy of Ike’s book Good Baggage here.

    Mayor Paul TenHaken: Early Riser, Big Impact - A Morning Routine for Success, Dealing with Anger (South Dakota Series #6)

    Mayor Paul TenHaken: Early Riser, Big Impact - A Morning Routine for Success, Dealing with Anger (South Dakota Series #6)

    Adam is back for this month’s South Dakota series episode with Paul TenHaken, the mayor of Sioux Falls (South Dakota’s largest city)!
    Mayor TenHaken first took office in 2018 and is currently serving his second (and final) term. He has amassed an impressive list of accomplishments for the city, which was named one of the best run cities in the country in 2021! But more importantly, Paul has done so while being vocal about his faith and prioritizing his growing family.
    During their conversation, Paul and Adam discuss how rising early (from cold plunges to reading the Bible) has made a huge, positive impact on how they take on challenges throughout their day. They also talk about how to lead with purpose, why we should seek significance over financial success and practical ways to keep a level head.
