    Krista shares some thoughts in response to a recent question we received: How do you obey the fifth commandment (see Eph. 6:1-3; Col. 3:20) when you are an adult, especially if your parents are difficult people or were abusive to you as a child?

    Should Christians Participate in IVF & Surrogacy? | 6/22/24 | #182

    A key theme on the podcast this year is justice for the pre-born. We are exploring the issue from a variety of different angles. This week, our friend Katy Faust (from Them Before Us), is coming back on the show to discuss recent developments in the public conversations about IVF and surrogacy. We are going to consider these technologies in light of the Christian worldview.

    What is the Woke Right? | 6/15/24 | #181

    What is the Woke Right? | 6/15/24 | #181

    Last month, we did a show about the "woke right." And then our friend, Alisa Childers, re-released it on her podcast platform. Since then, we've received a lot of feedback about the show and continued to research the issues. Some people say the "woke right" isn't a thing. Others say, it's "absolutely a thing." It's a lot to process. We don't claim to have all the answers, but we are trying to have the public conversations to help the "regular people" make sense of what's emerging among Christian socio-political influencers. We have asked our friend, Neil Shenvi, to come on and help us continue the discussion.

    The Struggles of Trauma, Mental Illness & the Christian Life | 6/1/2024 | #180

    The Struggles of Trauma, Mental Illness & the Christian Life | 6/1/2024 | #180

    There is so much confusion among Christians about the issue of counseling and mental illness. Some think that it undermines the authority of Scripture to even see a therapist. Others seem to lack discernment about how to prevent therapy becoming a gateway to unbiblical life choices. We've asked our friend, Dr. David King, professor in social work at Indiana Wesleyan University, to come on the show and share his perspectives about the intersection of therapy and the Christian worldview.

An anchor in a crazy world

This podcast is one of my anchors in the faith. I’m so grateful for Krista and Monique’s dedication to present Biblical teaching in a challenging, faithful, and fun way. This podcast is one of the ways God has strengthened my faith and given me hope and encouragement. Thanks, fam!

Tim Ballard episode is kind of ridiculous

I like the deep dives but to do all that deep diving only to discover some stories have been dramatized to raise more awareness to a real problem and to raise money so more children could be saved…seems like NOT a reason to be as upset as she seems…will give it more episodes but this is kind of a ridiculous episode.

Think Biblically about everything!

This podcast and all the content from Theology Mom/CFBU have been such great resources for me over the past 5 years. Her teachings have helped me and equipped me to think Biblically about so many issues in culture. The best teaching won’t tell you what to think, but show you what Scripture says. Thank you Krista and Monique!
