Christian Home & Family: Help Your Kids Fight the Condemning Voice in Their Heads

Everyone fights those nagging little voices of condemnation that speak to their own minds. It’s part of the human condition. It’s that voice in your head that repeats things like: “I am so worthless. I am such a failure. I am not worthy of anything…” We all experience this. Parents, you have to know that your kids are going to struggle with those same issues.

Real Stuff My Dad Says 81: “Can We All Get Along?”

[display_podcast] I have two podcasts / blogs that each come from my perspective of a Christian parent of four boys and are aimed toward other Christ-following, Bible-believing people who have a spare ten minutes in their day to hear what I (and often my dad) have to say.

Real Stuff My Dad Says 80: Vanity Fair Is A Church Issue

[display_podcast] Last week, I was able to enjoy one of life’s great pleasures: Dad and I went to a ballgame together. My poor wife and mom endured eight long innings of what they considered monotony, but what Dad and I considered pure joy! I say only eight innings, because I don’t care who you are, the ninth inning was a blast – tie game, bases loaded, five-man infield, capped off with a walk-off grand slam by the home team!

Ouxano: Applying the Bible to Your Everyday Life

How does this apply to me?In this week’s podcast, we take a look at John 1:35-50 and look at the seemingly simple story of Jesus calling His disciples.35 The following day John was again standing with two of his disciples. 36 As Jesus walked b … [Read more...]
