Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] According to my dad, he’s really not that smart. In all actuality, truth is smart. So, when we acknowledge truth, then we understand a true, smart idea. Therefore, some of these ideas of dad’s that we have discussed in the past are not smart because they came from Dad’s noggin, but it’s the truth within the idea that makes them smart! All this to say, I think my dad’s pretty smart. Now, as we sat down to record this week’s podcast, it was the Tuesday after Martin Luther King … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] Hello, and welcome to Parent Like You Mean It – the podcast where we talk about parenting with intentionality, versus just letting life happen to you and your kids, all with the aim of developing outstanding values and character in our kids.

Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] Back when I was a boy, there was a movement sweeping across the country, beginning here on the West Coast.  It was largely made up of a bunch of hippies who had found Jesus, thus earning the label Jesus Freaks.  It was basically a counterculture, hippie version of non-denominational Christianity, aka the Jesus Movement, where many of those young adults shared all that they had, met in parks instead of large, stained-glass church buildings, and replaced church organs with rock g … [Read more...]

RFGcoverart300

[display_podcast] From Carey Green, author, blogger, speaker, coach and pastor: IN THE LAST INSTALLMENT OF THIS PODCAST I THRUST YOU DEEP INTO THE RECESSES OF MY MIND… I HOPE IT WASN’T TOO SCARY. My goal was to take you on the journey that I took as I was trying to unpack the notion of radical faith, because when it comes to faith in Jesus, I don’t want to be normal… at least not the kind of normal that is normal in the world today.
