    Abuse, Disintegration, Tech, and The Life We Need (Interview With Andy Crouch)

    We have an incredible guest on the show today; Andy Crouch joins Brook for an insightful and rich conversation about technology and the family. You may know Andy Crouch from his books The Techwise Family or The Life We Were Looking For. In this episode, we ask Andy questions like, what is the family for? And what worked or didn’t work as Andy and his wife raised their two kids? Brook and Andy also explore the superpowers we are drawn to and rely on and how choosing to be happy now or happy later can either transform us in the way we want to go or the way we don’t want to go. Enjoy!

    Complaining, Negative Development, and Shame or Fear?

    Complaining is not new to the human experience. We all suffer on this side of heaven; some is circumstantial, and some is perspective. Thankfully, the Bible has a lot to share with us about complaining. We hope you will join us for our conversation today, where we talk about perspective in suffering, some sneaky ways the enemy likes to fuel the fire and a few helpful questions to ask amid your grumbling. We also talk about negative development and some essential tools to help you escape a cycle of complaining. Enjoy!

    Alcohol & Food Addiction in a Culture of Normalization (Q+R)

    Alcohol & Food Addiction in a Culture of Normalization (Q+R)

    We have the whole crew here today, and we are diving into a great question that was submitted to us: How do you talk to your kids about alcohol in a culture that normalizes it? There are a lot of nuances to this topic and it’s not black and white. We discuss conviction versus preference, parenting out of relationship, and how easy it is to turn to external things rather than God. We hope you join us as we talk about what the Bible says about alcohol and how to live in a way that we can offer our bodies as a living sacrifice to Jesus. Enjoy!

    The Process of Formation to Jesus in our Families

    The Process of Formation to Jesus in our Families

    How do we practically train our children to walk with Jesus and do what He did? On today’s show, we talk about a 4- step process that shows us how to bring our children on the journey with us. Just like Jesus involves us in His work, He wants us to do the same with our children. There are different stages in training our children and as you walk through each stage you give them the gift of leadership and equip them for their individual God-given callings. Enjoy!

Look forward to every episode

I genuinely love this podcast more than any other Christian parenting podcast I’ve ever come across—and this is years in the making for me. Now that I’m a single mom to my 10 month old son I look forward to each new episode and learning all the wisdom these folks share in intentionally raising your children in the ways of Christ — and that’s my main goal! Love these people.
