Parenting wisdom 

Whether you are preparing for a newborn, looking for advice specific to parenting boys, or just want to laugh a little about the journey of parenting—we have a podcast for you. 

As believing parents, we know how important it is to raise our kids with love and intentionality. We want to give our kids a full picture of God’s love for them every day! But some days, it’s really hard! We are stretched thin, tired, and often feel unequipped. The Christian Parenting Podcast gives parents the space and resources to set aside perfection and grow into the perfectly imperfect parents God made them to be.

Parenting can be messy. There’s lots of amazing moments followed by some really hard times that make it easy to be discouraged if we aren’t careful. Pardon the Mess tackles parenting with honest discussions about the ups and downs of parenting and the lessons God has taught us along the way. It’s fun, it’s real, it’s biblical, and it’s for everyone!
