    019: "Lies Men Believe," a teaser for season 2

    019: "Lies Men Believe," a teaser for season 2

    After several months off during the school year and all that entails, ”Lies Men Believe” is the theme of season 2 for The Defiant Dad Podcast.


    Several men from last season will be reprising their roles and helping equip us with truths from scripture to fight the lies we hear (and believe) on a daily basis as God-fearing men.

    Season 2 will run from Fathers Day til about Labor Day, give or take, and the two goals for the summer are 1) that men and their families would be drawn closer to God and 2) that they would be equipped by and drawn to the all-sufficient Word of God.

    018: The End of Season 1 (monologue)

    018: The End of Season 1 (monologue)

    After several weeks of prayerful consideration, I think it's time for The Defiant Dad Podcast to take a break until next summer. In an attempt to focus on producing high-quality interviews, I have made the decision to convert the podcast into a summertime series. The next season of The Defiant Dad will begin around Fathers Day 2024, and continue on through about September 1, give or take. Thank you for your ongoing support and encouragement. It has been a delight to hear from so many men about how these interviews have shaped hearts and minds for the sake of The Gospel. God willing, we will be back again in 2024!

    017: The Dad, a Faithful Servant w/ Jason Small

    017: The Dad, a Faithful Servant w/ Jason Small

    When you become a father, you take on one of, if not the, most important role in your life. The course of your life and how you live will undoubtedly have lasting impacts on your family and on those around you.
    Faithful fathers can easily fall into the trap of believing that their sin isn't all that bad, and that it won't affect others. Frighteningly, it's plain to see that on this side of eternity, we are deeply depraved and woefully unable to follow God's commands. So what can the "defiant" dad do? We strive to be the faithful servant leader, relying on God's grace through it all.Jason Small joins the show to discuss these ideas and more. He's a husband, father, and engineer and his perspective is one you'll not want to miss!

    016: Isolation, the Way to Death w/ Jared Musgrove

    016: Isolation, the Way to Death w/ Jared Musgrove

    Before Eve was created, God said that it was not good for man to be alone. Isolation is the start of the road that leads toward death. Many, if not most, sins proliferate in our lives because we do not expose them to the light.. that is, we isolate that part of our lives from others who would speak truth to us and help kill that sin.Author, pastor, husband and father Jared Musgrove joins the show this week to talk about brotherhood and unity and the importance of transformational Christian friendships for the Bible-believing man and father.

    015: A Legacy That Lasts w/ Justin Stevens

    015: A Legacy That Lasts w/ Justin Stevens

    Justin Stevens joins the show to discuss the concept of "legacy," which is something that many fathers consider on a regular basis. One day, your kids will have a moment where they pause to consider the type of father that you were. What do you want your legacy to be?
     
    While money, skills and talents can all have great benefits for your children, the gift that will yield the greatest impact on their future is whether/not you actively lead your kids towards Christ.
     
    Justin is a nursing home director, father and husband from Madison, Nebraska.

Great conversations with normal Christians!

There is a good mix of lay-people and “professionals” in Andrew’s guest list, and they have a helpful range of perspectives on issues of Christian manhood. You will not find the echo-chamber here. And you will hear a lot of good things to help you consider how to grow as a Christian and a father.
