Your Son Can Trust God, Answering the What-Ifs with Katy Boatman

Today our guest, Katy Boatman, chats with us about her new devotional for boys, “You Can Trust.” We were fascinated listening to Katy discuss how she landed on this writing project.  (You’ll have to listen to find out…☺)


Preteen boys have a lot of thoughts spinning through their curious minds each day.  But too often, their “what-if” questions are rooted in fear and anxiety as they try to find their way in a world that doesn’t always make sense.  This easy-to-read devotional by Katy Boatman offers daily encouragement and truths to combat that worry.  Each of the 100 devotions, plus interactive activity days, (which sound super fun!) rallies boys to trust the God who has all the answers.  They’ll explore questions such as:


What if I don’t feel strong enough?

What if I’m scared?

What if my team loses?

What if God changes His mind about me?


“You Can Trust” offers boys tangible reminders that they can trust God with all their what-ifs and questions in life.


Katy lives in Nashville, is passionate about mentoring the next generation and authored a devotional book, “You Can Rest,” for girls which was a finalist in the category of “Young People’s Literature for the ECPA’S 2023 CHRISTIAN BOOK AWARD. “Check it out, too!

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.
