Is the Bible Just a Book Written by Some Ancient Dead Guys? - Episode 5
April 12, 2021 - 26 min
If we want our kids to stand strong in their faith, we need to have real answers to some of their hardest questions about God and His Word. Why did God use men to write his book? In this episode, Catherine unpacks this question and the powerful, life-altering answer. The fact is: that God used the men and women he did to write the Bible and share the gospel should give us incredible hope for our own lives.

Is Christianity Just A Religion of Do’s and Don’ts? – Episode 4
March 29, 2021 - 22 min
One of the main reasons young people are leaving the faith is because they are growing up in a legalistic faith. They approached their faith as a list of do’s and don’ts. Their relationship with God was a checklist, a duty. In this episode, Catherine unpacks what the rules in the Bible are all about, why they are important, and how we sometimes misunderstand what they are about. The rules aren’t about pleasing God. God’s rules are given as a way to approach us. Scripture Referenced in This Episode: The tree of knowledge of good and evil: Genesis 2:15-17 The Parable of the Lost Sheep: Luke 15:1-7 The Parable of the Lost Son: Luke 15:11-32 Resources Mentioned in This Episode: Church of the Highlands: , Jan. 17, 2021, Chris Hodges, Church of the Highlands Episode Image Credit: Getty/Maliha Majeed
How Do I Teach My Kids to Contend for Their Faith? - Episode 3
March 22, 2021 - 22 min
In the last episode, we talked about what our kids need for an authentic faith. We concluded that we need to teach our kids how to wrestle - how to contend - for their faith. One of the primary reasons cited for this youth exodus by Tom Bisset in his book is surprisingly simple: “They left because they never personally owned their faith.” In other words, their faith was an offshoot of their parent’s spiritual journey. Like Esau, who didn’t value the birthright his father wanted to bestow, these kids never found a personal faith. They never wrestled with God like Jacob did. They never contended with the ideas of men and women. They never learned how to overcome. And when faced with worldly ideals backed by popular secular ideology, the faith of these young people couldn’t stand. In this episode, Catherine shares 7 steps parents can take to help their kids begin to wrestle with their faith. Episode Image Credit: Oleksandr Pupko
