Thank you so much to those of you who prayed for me to recover from Covid back in April. Though the brain fog and fatigue hung on for months, the Lord has graciously restored my health.
I’ve enjoyed doing this podcast so much the past 3 years, working with my son Isaiah (Finn) and getting to study and meditate on these stories from the Bible.
As I look to the future, God has shown me that I need to focus my time on homeschooling two of my children this year and continue to be involved as a family at church, so I’ve had to make some difficult and painful decisions.
For now, you won’t see new podcast episodes, but you will see activity on my website aliciayoder.com. I will plan to keep my recommended resource page updated, with suggestions for children, parents, and materials for discipleship and spiritual growth. You will also see certain podcast episodes or series highlighted, especially around holidays. So if you’re only subscribed to the podcast, be sure you subscribe to my site here: aliciayoder.com.
There will still be some costs to host my website and to host the audio for past episodes so that they can be accessed through Spotify and iTunes, so if you’d like to support this work for a couple dollars a month, you can do so at https://www.patreon.com/aliciayoder
Lastly, thank you so much for being a parent or someone involved in working with children. It can feel exhausting, thankless, and discouraging when we aren’t able to see much fruit, but God sees and gives us grace in our efforts. We have so much hope because of Christ, who took the punishment for all our sins, credited us with His righteousness, and leads us moment by moment to God’s throne of grace and mercy. We are loving who Jesus loves as we compassionately and humbly train our children. So let’s keep going in Christ’s strength as we come to Him in each desperate need!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13

Cheering from SC! Sweet memories of you two at C4 working with the children! What an inspiration you are. What a precious family! May God continue to do His wonderful good work in and through your lives for His glory!
My boys cried during your last episode. Thank you so much for teaching my boys God’s Word these last three years. We have enjoyed it so much. My boys listen to your podcast as they fall asleep at night. Thank you for using your gifts for the glory of Jesus!

Thank you for your encouraging words, KR. May the Lord continue to give you the grace and strength to train your boys and show them Jesus.
Thank you so much, Tricia! You and your family were such a blessing to us at C4.
Thank you for your ministry. My boys and I just found your podcast in the last 6 months and have already listened to all of them… Many days just on constant play.
They loved it from the start but even more so when Finn started joining in 🙂 My older son (8) loves listening to the episode where your are reading calming verses before bedtime.
They were very sad when there were no more new episodes and when we got your update in May about being sick. They have asked me every week to check if there is an update! We are glad we can continue to relisten to the episodes and learn why Jesus is better! We will be praying for you and your family in this next season. Thank you for your dedication and faithfulness.
Thank you so much for your encouragement, Crystal! I’m so glad it has been a blessing for your boys, and I appreciate your prayers. May you feel God’s Shepherd-care as you shepherd your boys.
