Ep. 8 : Raising Sinners with special guest Matthew West

Matthew West is our guest on the podcast today! He’s a five-time GRAMMY nominee, a four-time ASCAP Christian Music Songwriter/Artist of the Year winner, and a 2018 GMA Dove Award Songwriter of the Year (Artist) recipient and has two RIAA Gold-certified and an RIAA Platinum-certified singles.  He has received an American Music Award, a Billboard Music Award, a K-LOVE Fan Award, and named Billboard’s Hot Christian Songwriter of the Year.  But he makes it abundantly clear in this episode that his priorities are Jesus and family.

 

Matthew West is a family man.  When asked about his parenting style he replied with “heavily involved” following up with how he must be intentional as he travels and performs throughout the country.

 

Matthew’s newest album, WE NEED CHRISTMAS, is such a joyous mix of new songs he’s written coupled with classics you’re sure to love.  It’s been on repeat in our house for a month now! When asked about the inspiration behind his new album Matthew shares, “Christmas is a time when our hearts can be powerfully reminded that the peace, hope, love and joy we all need can still be found in our Savior.”

 

During the month of December, Matthew is performing a limited number of shows in the US.  However, there’s a virtual performance happening December 21-25! Check out MatthewWest.com for information, tickets and show times.  Join your family and friends and watch Matthew perform all the songs from his new album and usher in the Christmas season.

About Raising Sinners

It all started in 2016 with Lisa Clark’s book, “Raising Sinners,” but she knew there was more to say. The Raising Sinners podcast tackles all the topics and questions parents have about raising their kids! Lisa and her co-host Chrissie Dunham, and the occasional special guest, cover it all: sibling rivalry, dating, and social media, but also discuss raising children who don’t fit the mold and even that pesky “mama guilt.” 

While sin can be fun in the moment, it’s never funny. Lisa and Chrissie walk this line well, finding light and laughter though the difficulties of parenting, but always having pointed, relatable, and reverent discussions that focus on God’s word and what the “manual” has to say about our parenting. 

Lisa and Chrissie have been podcasting together since 2018 through their other show, The Wonder Podcast. You can connect with them on Instagram @talkwithchrissieandlisa.

About Lisa Clark and Chrissie Dunham

Friends for several decades, Lisa Clark and Chrissie Dunham have lots of laughs and giggles teaching and sharing their life experiences on the podcast they co-host, The Wonder Podcast.  It has definitely been their outlet over the past 3 years to share stories, testimonies of God’s faithfulness and provide insights into what God is teaching them during this stage of life.

Adding to that outlet, they’ve joined the Christian Parenting Podcast network recently with the debut of their newest podcast, Raising Sinners. Their backgrounds are similar, having both been raised in Christian homes, college, marriage, and birthed two daughters. Chrissie is definitely the personality of the duo as Lisa laughs at all Chrissie’s jokes and quietly waits for her to take a breath so she can add a thing or two! But the second half of life has proven to be their favorite season thus far.

Empty nesting, grandparenting, time with family and friends, has filled their cup these last few years.  But along with life’s greatest blessings, comes great sorrow, and God has shown up continually, keeping His promises as a faithful, covenant keeping God.  “He walks with us in every season and makes Himself known.”  Chrissie and Lisa speak professionally to church groups, women’s events/conferences, retreats and more.  Lisa’s niche is parenting, and she authored “Raising Sinners” several years ago to chronicle her own parenting journey with an emphasis on biblical parenting.
