S6Ep3: Parenting: Getting it Right


This week hosts Mike Nawrocki and Sarah Humphrey interview author Sandra Stanley about her new book, written with husband Andy, Parenting: Getting it Right.

Am I getting parenting right? Most parents at all stages find themselves asking this question.
Whether you’re sleep-deprived with a colicky newborn or navigating the emotional roller coaster of a teenager, parenting has its lows and highs, its confusion and clarity, its big blowups
and small victories. And no matter our family’s makeup or our children’s personalities, many of us experience anxiety over our children’s futures and often fear making a mistake.

Andy and Sandra Stanley are no strangers to this feeling. As parents of three grown children and cofounders of North Point Ministries, the Stanleys have spent decades teaching and
learning. They’ve counseled families, mentored others, and learned from mentors of their own, all while leading one of the largest churches in the country.

In Parenting: Getting It Right (Zondervan Books; January 17, 2023), Andy and Sandra combine their experience and wisdom into a guide that helps readers understand and live by essential
parenting principles.

Bursting with 90 brain-teasing puzzles, 40 Bible passages, and 30 concepts regarding God’s creation, this lesson-and-activity book will give kids aged 8-12 skills to investigate the Bible for themselves—like a real investigator!  As kids apply logic and solve challenging puzzles, they will dive deeply into Scripture and examine the Bible’s account of creation, picking up lots of skills for reading and interpreting the Bible. As well as lots of puzzles, there are journaling boxes for kids to reflect on, interpret, and apply what they have learned.  Great for use in homeschools (independent work, morning time, or Bible lessons) and also great for churches to use with kids.  Fun for road trips and rainy days too! The book includes a link to free downloads that include reproducibles for more than one child, so families or classes can easily work together.

S5Ep49: Birds on a Wire Moms


This week hosts Mike Nawrocki and Sarah Humphrey talk with author Karen Stubbs about her ministry, Birds on a Wire Moms. 

Karen Stubbs is an author, speaker, and mom to four adult children. In 2011, she founded Birds on a Wire Moms, a ministry created to equip women with practical and Biblical truth. Early on in her marriage, Karen’s husband Greg served as a fighter pilot in the Navy. It was during those tough early years, while Greg served overseas during Desert Storm, that Karen grew in her reliance on God and gained a heart for teaching biblical truths to women. Full of practical advice and engaging stories from her own walk with the Lord, Karen Stubbs is passionate about challenging women to live out the truth of God’s Word in their everyday lives.

Birds on a Wire Moms
As moms, we constantly serve our families. We cook, we clean and we spend hours of our life in the carpool line. We stay up at night thinking, praying and, if we’re being honest, worrying
about our children’s well being. Our plates are full and our days are short.

There’s nothing we want more than to love and nurture our children, but we don’t always feel encouraged or equipped to do all that comes with the job. Often times, we feel alone. That’s
why Karen Stubbs created Birds on a Wire in 2011. Birds on a Wire is a ministry that provides Godly, practical advice so you’ll feel celebrated, encouraged and equipped to parent with confidence.

What started as a group of eight moms meeting in Karen’s basement has grown into an international ministry with thousands of moms all over the world. Birds on a Wire supports moms through the weekly podcast, Wire Talk, as well as small group studies available through Right Now Media and live speaking engagements all across the U.S.

Birds on a Wire Moms is for all moms. Moms who work out of the house or in the house. Moms who have a newborn to moms who are empty nesters. No matter where you are in the journey of motherhood, Birds on a Wire Moms is here to encourage and equip you.
