Ep. 1.6 - Mike Singletary and Kirk McJunkin
Baylor Bear and NFL Hall of Famer Mike Singletary joins University of Texas and Pittsburgh Steeler Kirk McJunkin to talk about parenting your kids through sports. Coach Singletary experienced adversity at a young age, but through it, he believed rich teaching from his mother regarding his identity — teaching that rerouted him and his future. Coach McJunkin reveals how he began playing sports as a search for significance, until the Lord revealed to him that he could not find his self-worth in football. When the Lord changed his approach from being self-centered to being others-centered, his life was altered forever. Two elite athletes who excelled at the highest levels both point to their faith as the only firm foundation for families as they travel the path of youth sports. Today’s episode features a candid and vulnerable conversation about the difficult task of parenting our children in youth, select, and high school sports.    (Today’s podcast references Luke 15:11-32, Deuteronomy 6:6-7, and Colossians 3:21)   Get the encouragement and support you need to teach your kids to love Christ in a world that doesn’t — directly to your inbox each week!   Christian Parenting offers trusted guidance for the hardest job there is.   CONNECT WITH OUR COMMUNITY   Facebook // Twitter // Instagram //

Ep 1.5 - Kay Wyma
The messaging of the world leads us to shame, silence, and isolation. Instead of recognizing our kids’ unique qualities, as parents, sometimes we act like we want our kids to “be great” at everything. But this messaging is “not the boss of us”, as guest author Kay Wyma discusses today. Kay reminds us of our phenomenal worth and value, and how believing that identity for ourselves helps fuel us to lead our kids to living out their identity. She calls us to stop valuing our children based on performance, and instead call in truth to point them back to their precious worth to God, and to how loved and uniquely gifted they are to Him. (Today’s podcast references Ephesians 2, Isaiah 55:8-9, Matthew 11:28, Isaiah 43:1, Daniel 3:26, Phil 4:6)   Get the encouragement and support you need to teach your kids to love Christ in a world that doesn’t — directly to your inbox each week!   Christian Parenting offers trusted guidance for the hardest job there is.

Ep. 1.2 -- Mia Mbroh
  Do we rob our kids of the ability to trust God by constantly intervening when we see them struggling? What if our efforts to provide and protect are the actual barriers to their success? In this podcast we talk with Christian counselor Mia Mbroh about whether failure is important or overrated, how a Christian parent should respond to a child who is struggling, and how stop parenting out of our own wounds from the past. She asks us “is God still good enough for us, even in the difficult times?” and expands on how our behavior often answers this question with a resounding “no.” Mia gives us practical ways we can love our children by letting them fail – by choosing to walk with them through their failure instead of always trying to take the pain away.  (Today’s podcast references Deuteronomy 8:17-18, the Heroes of the Bible, Proverbs 3:5-6)   Get the encouragement and trusted guidance you need to raise your kids in the uncompromised truth of God’s word— directly to your inbox each week!   Raising children on solid, biblical truth in a fast-changing world.

Ep. 1.1 - Janet Denison
Can a Christian parent find success? Our performance and perfection driven culture can make us feel we will never measure up.  As parents, we want to know how to define God’s version of success in parenting, so in this podcast we discuss how to raise up believers, and how to be character focused parents.   Today’s conversation is with Bible teacher, writer, and speaker Janet Denison. Janet reminds us that success is what it’s always been, and points us back to the oldest principles and the biggest picture in our parenting. She answers “how do we know if our child has accepted Christ” and gives us a short list of non-negotiables about which we cannot budge when guiding little hearts.
