Episode 117: Bedtime Verses for Resting in Jesus

This episode is a compilation of encouraging and hope-filled verses to listen to at night or any time you’re feeling discouraged.

And a huge thanks to Blue Dot Sessions, Chad Crouch, and Nuno Adelaida for their amazing piano compositions!

Episode 116: 2 Kings 15 and 2 Chronicles 26 Uzziah Starts Well But Turns From the Lord

In this episode, we talk about Uzziah’s sin in the temple and Isaiah’s worship in the temple and that Jesus came to be the perfect Prophet, Priest, and King of our hearts. 

With your kids: Pick one of Jesus’ roles–prophet, priest, or king, and talk about it. Then praise Jesus for perfectly fulfilling that role in your life.

Episode 115: 2 Kings 14 and 2 Chronicles 25 Amaziah is Humbled

In this episode, Finn and I talk about who King Amaziah started listening to, and how God loves to help those of us who are joined to him listen to him instead of those who don’t follow Him. 

With your kids: What expression do you think is on God’s face when you sin?
