Episode 79: Connecting Kids to Jesus in the Busyness of Life

Our guest today, Josh Straub, is a passionate author, parenting coach, and podcast host. He and his wife, Christi, recently published the book, “Famous at Home: 7 Decisions to Putting Your Family Center Stage in a World Competing for your Time, Attention, and Identity.” Josh will challenge you to look at your family from a 30,000 foot view and ask, “What atmosphere are we cultivating? Are we promoting peace or anxiety?” Whatever it is you’re chasing in life is what you end up putting ahead of the people under your own roof. Josh knows from experience that when you truly experience God’s love, the chase stops. Listen in to hear practical ways you can stop this chase and cultivate an environment of peace & joy at home and to those around you.
