[display_podcast] Ever since I was a little boy, my parents have set an example of the importance of church involvement. No matter what size of church we attended, from tiny little fellowships to mega churches, my parents have been active members. But all this involvement doesn’t answer the key question to it all:Why does the Church exist? Well, according to my dad, all Christ-followers within the world’s churches have God-given gifts.

PLYMI Square

[display_podcast] Hello, and welcome to Parent Like You Mean It, the podcast where we talk about raising our kids to know the difference between right and wrong, good and bad, and fact versus opinion.

Ouxano Thumbnail

[display_podcast] From Pastor Matt Tague, author of Read the Word: The Bible was written for you: Let’s take a look at the Old Testament Books filled with God’s Wisdom:  Proverbs, Job and Ecclesiastes. Now, the way that ancient Israelites expressed wisdom was quite different than today. There were no step-by-step guides or leadership books with a single analogy to weave pearls of wisdom through.
