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.

Pray For Me Campaign with Tony Souder

Studies show that young people who are connected with other adults in church have a much higher percentage of remaining with the faith. But as a parent, how can we facilitate this? And as a church leader, what can we contribute? In this episode, Tony Souder of the Pray for Me Campaign discusses how he has helped supercharge this idea for churchwide application.

Parenting Q and A with Chap

What if you could invite me to your Sunday School and ask me some parenting questions to fill in the corners of The Disciple-Making Parent.  

That’s exactly what this recording is.  A friend invited me to his church to finish up their study of  The Disciple-Making Parent. In that time, we covered all sorts of subjects including ones I did not talk about like: prodigals, advice to young parents, and commitment to the local church.

Repentance: God’s Loving Invitation to Refreshment

We may think of the word repent as an outdated term, associated with men who walked around downtown with sandwich boards proclaiming, “Repent for the end is at hand.” The term seems odd, patriarchal, narrow-minded, and restrictive

I think what you will find in this short sermon is that it is a very relevant term. Relevant for your life, relevant for your growth and relevant for your family. 

To repent is to have a change of mind that results in a change of direction.  It admits there is a standard that we are not meeting up too. And it is a loving call to change. I think you will be edified as you listen to this podcast

Love the Ones You’re With: One Way Jesus Shows Off His Glory

We all know that God calls us to love our family. But what if there was a reason deeper than we knew that could motivate our love? In this podcast we are going to spend some time thinking about Jesus’ command that his disciples should love one another as he loved them. 

This is a profound command and impossible apart from the Spirit. But it is even more profound when we start thinking about loving, not some person at church but my family. My husband, my wife, my child. It is vital we do love each other with an agape love. Our children and the world are watching. 

I think you are going to discover encouragement and a new perspective on loving those who may be the […]
