    Parents, Don’t Google It!

    So often our first impulse is to take our parenting questions straight to the internet. We’ll ask Siri or Google answers to our questions. But is finding information online the same as gaining knowledge and wisdom? Are there better, more biblical sources that we should first consult? Brett and Erin discuss how scripture points us to true sources of wisdom for our parenting journey.

Great podcast

Great podcast! You have been so helpful to navigate the gender ideologies with my kids. I was able to use the correct words and give them clear examples, all of them learned from your podcast. My kids go to public school and my youngest one has asked me crazy questions about people in his class that identity as non-binary or gender fluid… he was not surprised because we had conversations before but after listening to your podcast I was better equipped and prepared to approach such difficulty topics with grace and love.
Thank you so much! Keep up the good work.
