It’s body month and in this episode, Katie and I are talking all things kitchen including our kitchen irritations and habits as well as tips and tricks for getting our kids involved in the kitchen. We also share a few of our favorite recipes and stories from our childhood.
“It’s impossible to connect with my teenager!” “My child is only 9, we aren’t battling teen issues yet.” “My relationship with the Father doesn’t REALLY impact my relationship with my kids.”
In the words of the great Dwight Schrute: FALSE! In this chat, Drew helps us understand how to approach hurdles with the teens we love.
Christmas is just a week away - are you feeling frazzled? Don’t worry, we are too. Fortunately, we’re here to solve all your holiday problems from contentious in-laws to all those annoying toys your kids will get this year. We also weigh the pros and cons or real vs. artificial Christmas trees and tackle the age-old question - what do you do when your mom won’t let you stop delivering angel food cake to strangers? It’s a real conundrum.
Is your family weird/amazing/loud/embarrassing/picky? Or at least one of those things? Us too!

Do you frequent the parenting shame cycle? Could you use tips on how to genuinely engage with teenagers? How can you help your children choose quality friendships?

Wouldn’t it be amazing if life didn’t include loss? Sometimes we love things so much the idea of letting them go feels like it might be the end of us. If you are walking through a season of surrender (voluntary or forced) or if this season has been one of suffering for you, you’re going to find comfort in Shannan’s story.
Ellie Holcomb has created a beautiful, scripture rooted, children’s musical project Sing: Creation Songs. She wanted to write songs that were directly inspired by both God’s word and His beautiful creation that is a perfect companion piece to her upcoming children’s book Who Sang The First Song?.
