Is Parenting Actually Hard with Risen Motherhood (Ep 31)

Back this week with the fun part of our conversation with Laura and Emily from Risen Motherhood (the podcast AND the new book). They begin every episode with the statement "Motherhood is hard," so we thought we'd get them to dig deeper into what that really means. Is parenting actually hard, or do we make it hard? A friendly debate ensues and go figure, when you listen to people who think differently than you, sometimes you learn things.

Gospel Hope for Fun and Happy Parenting with Risen Motherhood (Ep 30)

We "know" the gospel means salvation in the eternal sense, but what does it do for us in the meantime?For such an important question we had to bring in the heavy hitters Laura and Emily from Risen Motherhood to help us sort through all the implications the Good News has for us as parents. Fortunately for us they wrote an entire book on the topic so they've got a lot of insight.

The deeper our understanding of the gospel goes the more we realize how all encompassing this "good news" actually is. From the biggest problems to the smallest, the answer always lies in the work of Jesus.

Navigating Alcohol with Children (Ep 29)

Beer, wine, and spirits. To some they are the start of a great night, to others they are a sure fire sign of darkness and moral decline. It gets even trickier when you throw children and legal drinking ages into the mix...

What does God think about alcohol? Is it a good idea for kids to be around it? How do we define drunkenness? What ages is it OK for kids to start drinking? We tackle these questions and more while, as always, our goal isn't to tell you what the "right" answers are, but rather spark thoughts and conversations to help you process through it for you and your family.

Profanity + How Different are “Shoot” and “Sh*t” Really? (Ep 28)

Profanity: the timeless linguistic art of arranging letters into words inappropriate in public and off limits to kids. What does God think of swear words? How much do we try to avoid our kids coming into contact with them, or can we? How important is it for our kids to censor their own language?

Likely to be our most controversial episode to date, so buckle up and put on your non-judgmental hats (or don't, up to you).

I’d Love to Play With You…but I’m Tired (Ep 27)

This is not a revolutionary observation, but parenting can be tiring. Also not breaking news: it's easier to parent our kids well when we are not tired. Are you seeing what I'm seeing here?

In this episode we try to break the vicious cycle of parenting and fatigue. How can we have more energy for our kids? Is coffee the answer? Does it even matter? Listen up and (try to) get energized.

Mom Guilt (Ep 26)

We bring back the Moms for their second episode to cover a topic many Moms can relate to (and some Dad's too!): Mom guilt (Or maybe we'll just call it parent guilt). Do you ever have the feeling like you never measure up as parent? Or that you are constantly letting your kids down? We get into the nitty gritty of all those feelings and process through a healthier way to think about ourselves and our work as parents. Even if you can't relate to this there's still lots here to help you understand those that do and contribute to a parenting culture that eliminates the expectations driving that guilt.

If you want to hear more from these Moms help us convince them to come on the show more often by leaving a review on iTunes telling us you want more episodes with them!

When Ambition Goes Too Far + Spider-Man vs The Dark Knight (Part 2)

We pick up both conversations from last week's episode (listen to that one first if you haven't), first by asking the question how do we proceed when we our ambition is directed at something important, but with impure motivations, at least partially. Then at (26:30) Dan lays out his case for why Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse usurps The Dark Knight as the greatest superhero movie of all time.

When Ambition Goes Too Far + Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Ep 25)

It seems like there's always too many things in life to juggle: family, work, church, social life, school, plus any side hustles you have going on. Not only that but, especially in western cultures, the expectation often seems to be nothing less than excellence in every aspect of life, which sounds great but how do we know when it's all too much? Ultimately the question comes down to where does God want our ambitions directed? With so many noble pursuits pulling us in different directions the answer is far from simple.

Then at ( 30:00 ) we collectively gush over the best superhero movie of the past 1, 5, 10(?) years: "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse." It was so good we even felt obligated to debate whether or not it wrestled the crown from "The Dark Knight" as The Best Superhero Movie of All Time. Seriously, go watch this movie with your kids. Then do yourself a favor and download the soundtrack to replace your Kidzbop filled drives to school with some genuinely quality kid music. What's up danger.

The Fear of Death (Ep 24)

Our darkest episode to date! Some unresolved health issues are causing Justin to ask a lot of the classic questions we often ask when we suffer and enlists Jake and Dan to help him process through them.

How do we find our hope, peace, and joy in God alone? What do we do if God doesn't feel "real" and "present"? Does God kill people? Can we ever be CERTAIN about what happens after life on earth? What does faith the face of death look like? How should we feel about death? We don't answer all of these questions (shocking, I know), our main goal was just to keep it real and genuine through struggle.

If you are thinking: "That sounds like a morbid episode, I'll pass," don't worry, despite the subject matter we keep it relatively lighthearted as per our usual conversations.
