  • The True Dangers of Screen Time for Kids

    Video games, social media, smart phones, and pornography are all issues the parents today must navigate with caution, wisdom, and foresight. This is potentially one of the most relevant topics facing parents today: how to parent in a technology world? 

    Not only do we as parents need to make some parenting decisions regarding how to navigate this touchy subject, we also need to equip our children and teach them WHY! There are a lot of opinions out there regarding when or if you should give a teenager a smart phone with internet, but what does the science say?

    In this very important episode our guest shares her personal testimony of parenting a teen and young adult who struggled through an addiction to video games and how those lessons learned changed her parenting with her next three children and changed the trajectory of her family culture and her career. Join Angie as she, Melanie and Evan Hempe from Screen Strong discuss the scientific evidence of effects on the brain and some suggestions on how to navigate the teen years.

    Today’s podcast episode is a lively, relevant, educational, and fun conversation between a Mom and her son and host Angie Tolpin. Screen Strong has developed curriculums for both parents and children alike to teach on “Kid’s Brains & Screens” as well as help parents navigate a detox if necessary. If you or someone you know is struggling with how to navigate parenting on these topics, please consider sharing this episode with them.

     We do not need to parent alone. There is so much information out there, but to have two older moms share their hearts, experiences, failures, and lessons learned is truly priceless and they don’t leave you anxious about the potential harms, rather, Melanie shares some tips, tools, and resources to help you as you stand strong in culture that is shifting wayward like the tides of the culture.

  • How to Respond to Interrupting Biblically | Ginger Hubbard

    Every parent has dealt with a child interrupting. Join Angie and Ginger as they talk about the heart issue behind interrupting, how it can be a temptation for parents to sin as well, how we need to watch our own hearts, and how important it is to teach our children to have a respect for all people. 

    The importance of keeping communication lines open with our kids is a major goal of every parent, but how we respond to our children can greatly impact that line of communication. 


    If a parent ignores their child while talking to another adult, it can speak that their opinions or needs are not as important as the conversation they are having. We don’t want to communicate that our children are being annoying, rude, and not worth listening to with our actions. It could be a root cause for children feeling as though the parent doesn’t value their thoughts and feelings. This is very foundational in our relationships with our children– fragile ground if you will. But at the same time, we don’t want to cultivate a selfish, self-centered heart in our child by always attending to our child’s every whim at the cost of minimizing the value of others. There is a balance of teaching how to respectfully notify the parent that they need something without interrupting and also taking a moment away from adult conversations at a time that is appropriate and respectful of the other person you were speaking with. 


    Go to our website for the show notes, tips for correcting your children biblically, perspective shifts necessary for parents, and scripture references.

  • Using BRAVE Books to Equip Your Children on Hot Button Issues | Trent Talbot, CEO

    Christian parents are feeling more alone than ever as they navigate equipping their children in unprecedented times, but it doesn't have to be this way! There's a growing parallel economy of Christian conservative resources. At the forefront is BRAVE books! We went to their headquarters to discuss with their CEO and founder, Trent Talbot, what's behind one of the most compelling Christian children's book publishers helping parents today.

    It's an incredible story of Trent leaving the safety of his career to obey God in starting BRAVE books. His bravery is helping to shift culture with 36 books (so far) by conservative celebrity authors, a movement to fix the library system, and an upcoming TV show with Kirk Cameron that gives parents a better option.

    There's a power in using good stories to impact the next generation. It's vital for parents to proactively address the hot-button issues that are influencing children toward waywardness. The challenge is, that it's hard for parents to know how to communicate with their kids about these complex issues that are oftentimes hidden in the media they consume. Finally, a new children's book can arrive every month that your children will love; and the bonus is that it also helps you, the parent, to equip your children in sound thinking with a conservative and biblical perspective on the issues of today.

Correcting your children’s behavior is important and it’s vital to be consistent, but if you don’t tend to their hearts while doing so, it will lead to frustration over time.

  • Who’s Spiritually Leading Your Family?
    We all must ask this question and be willing to be honest about it. With about 80% of the children raised in Christian homes leaving the church by age 18, we must do things differently than most Christian parents. So who is spiritually leading your family? As parents, I hope we all would want to say “We are”, but the truth is most aren’t. Not with the intentionality and frequency the bible talks about in Deuteronomy 6:6-9. While a church's influence is good and needed, if that’s where they get most of their Spiritual nourishment, then parents are failing in this area. Isaac and Angie Tolpin dive into what the Bible says about gender roles in the family and the importance of both mom and dad having influence while respecting God’s plan for the family. They even go into what if your husband isn’t a Christian, and direction for single moms and dads too.
