Family Faith Rhythms with Kayla Craig
It is always a joy to be joined by one of our Christian Parenting Podcast Network hosts. Each host brings something special to the network and Kayla Craig is no exception! She has a heart for helping families slow down and grow spiritually alongside each other. Kayla is the host of the podcast, Liturgies for Parents and the author of To Light Their Way. Her new book is called Every Season Sacred and it’s an invitation for families to slow down, ask questions, and grow closer to Jesus in an intentional way.Today Kayla and I talk about the difference between being a consumer Christian and a Christian who is active in faith and relationship with Jesus, how to care for our own souls so we can live into our values and bring our kids into a faith journey, and how family faith rhythms and liturgies can help us connect with Jesus and each other as a family.I really love the question she challenges us to think about for our own families: what do we want people to see in our family that makes them realize we are different as followers of Jesus?Connect with KaylaInstagram:@kayla_craig@liturgiesforparentsWebsite:https://kaylacraig.com/Podcast:https://kaylacraig.com/podcast/Every Season Sacredhttps://kaylacraig.com/newbook/Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy
Raising Kind Daughters with Kari Kampakis
I grew up with two sisters so coming from an all-girl family, I was completely unprepared to have two sons. But as soon as I felt adjusted to life as a boy mom, I had a daughter! Raising a daughter is everything I always dreamed it would be, and also as challenging as I imagined it would be. Which is why I am so grateful for wise experts like today’s guest, Kari Kampakis. Kari is a mom of four girls, the host of the Girl Mom podcast, and author of several books including, More Than a Mom and Love Her Well. While being a girl is so different today than it was when we were growing up, some things remain relatively the same and one of those things is the challenge of learning to navigate friendships. Today Kari and I cover some of the messaging that girls receive about themselves and how we can reframe those messages, how to raise kind daughters, the importance of speaking truth over our girls, how to navigate friendships, and Kari reminds us that it all goes back to Jesus. I hope you enjoy this conversation!

She is an artist, podcaster, speaker, a wife, and a mom of 6 boys. Her latest book is Pilgrim: 25 Ways God’s Character Leads Us Onward Ruth is so gentle in her encouragement and her wisdom.

We also talk about how our job as parents is to steward our time with our kids in a way that honors God, why we often strive for control and perfection, the importance of sitting in God’s word, and how we can slowly grow into what God calls us to do.I hope you love this conversation with Ruth.Connect With Ruth@[email protected]://pilgrimbook.com/Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy
