The Patient Christian: Overcoming Anger in Your Home and Life – Podcast

Not again! You lost it, you’re furious, and you feel like a total failure. You yelled, slammed the door, hit the table, or threw your purse. Then the shame and guilt set in.  “These are my precious children! What am I thinking? What can I do?”

What are we talking about? Anger. And the fact is, it is far too prevalent in our parenting. And then we feel guilt or shame, so we cover it up. 

The following podcast is a short sermon that covers the material of my new resource at a high level. And that resource is going to help parents with the problem of anger.

It is called Parenting with Patience: Overcoming Anger in the Home.  If you are a parent who has […]

Whining, lying, interrupting, complaining, arguing, gossiping. Our tongues are a deadly poison. Are you having  trouble dealing with the words of your children? That’s what we will be talking about today.

Scripture says that the tongue is a deadly poison. And that poison comes into the house through the sinful hearts of everyone who lives there – including me.  For parents, shepherding our children through these issues can be difficult. How do I handle issues like whining, lying, interrupting, complaining, gossiping? The list keeps going.

In today’s podcast I’m delighted to present to you a conversation I had with Ginger Hubbard. Ginger is the author of I Can’t Believe You Just Said That: Biblical Wisdom for Taming Your Child’s Tongue.

Why Do We Discipline?

Are you weary in the work of training and discipline? Have you lost sight of the reason God has called you to this? I recently have been thinking about parents of young children who are tempted to grow weary in this good and exhausting task because they forget the why.

But it is a good and important work. 

Listen to our newest podcast – Chapter 17 of The Disciple-Making Parent.

Dr. Tom Hines: Choosing and Trusting your Pediatrician

In today’s podcast, we talk with my friend Dr. Tom Hines about choosing and trusting a pediatrician over the long haul. As our country grows increasingly hostile to the gospel, Christian parents can overreact or under-react.

I think this will help you think through thi issue. This podcast reminds me what a treasure and gift excellent, supportive, Christian pediatricians are. I believe that this is vital information that will help young parents in the days ahead.

Explaining the Christian Mess: 12 Things I Wish I Knew as a Teen

As a Christian, do you look around at the messiness of those who call themselves Christians.  Does their bizarre behavior make you doubt your own faith? 

In today’s podcast we try to answer the question – Can Jesus explain the mess that Christianity seems to be in? Does this mess discredit Jesus?

I think it is vital that our young people understand these issues. Otherwise, they can be tempted to say, I don’t want to be part of this craziness. 

Let’s tune in and start thinking about how we can explain the Christian mess.

Teaching Our Kids about Sex in a New Era

Part of discipling our children in the faith is to appropriately protect, teach, and model a biblical view of sexuality. Yet, no topic can make us more tongue-tied. To make matters worse, we are living in a hyper-sexualized and chaotic culture when it comes to this topic.

In this podcast, I talk with Eric Bancroft. Eric is the pastor of Grace Church in Miami, he has been married for 22 years and has three teenage sons.

This conversation is theologically rich along with wisdom that comes from someone who has been a youth pastor, pastor, and father of three teenage boys.

This will be a podcast you want to listen to several times, taking notes as you go!

The Kauflin name is probably very familiar to you.

Biblical Investment: Thinking Differently About Money

Do you and your spouse argue about money? Do you have a common understanding of what the Bible teaches about money? How are you teaching your children about money? 

In today’s podcast, I want to introduce you to my friend Daniel Howe. Daniel is the pastor of Christ Reformed Presbyterian church in East Providence RI. I invited him to address some of our families in our church and talk about the budgeting software application “You Need a Budget”.

I have just recently discovered this online site and love it. If you are feeling like you don’t have a handle on your spending, I highly recommend this application.

Daniel has a view on money that I have not heard widely before but I subscribe to –that is investing. What I hear from a lot of Christian teachers involves not spending –and that can […]

Loving One Another 101

As Christians, we are commanded many times in the New Testament to love one another. But how does that play out in our daily lives? And how do we train our children in this?

Jesus told us that all people will know we are his disciples if we love one another. In fact, that command is repeated 11 other times in the New Testament. But what does that love look like? 

In today’s podcast I invite you to listen in on five different aspects or facets of this diamond. You may think of these things as simple But I am regularly surprised at how many Christians don’t practice them. And for our particular application, how many parents don’t train their children in these qualities.
