    Encouraging, edifying, and helpful!
    This has easily become my #1 go-to podcast! It is encouraging and edifying to my soul, the way the crew talks so graciously about important topics. It is also immensely helpful in my own parenting and family discipleship as they give a biblical vision and practical tips on how to lead my family toward Jesus. One topic I would love to hear you discuss: how to talk to kids about disabilities and God’s good design. Two of my three children (currently aged 4 and 2) were born with minor physical disabilities and we have had a hard time knowing how to properly balance celebrating their disabilities as a part of God’s good design for their bodies (Ps 139:14) with recognizing the physical effects of living in a fallen world.

    Encouraging, Transformative, Biblical Podcast
    I stumbled upon this podcast and have been hooked since. If you’re looking for a podcast that is biblically sound while also vulnerable and transformative, this is it. The family discipleship podcast has truly opened up my eyes to the truth and gift of parenthood. It has changed mine and my family’s life for the better. It has been such a blessing to us. Every episode is drenched with biblical knowledge and applications that are doable for every family, every size and age group. Thank you Family Discipleship Podcast for following God’s Will and being obedient to His calling.

    Such a wonderful resource!
    This podcast has been such a blessing to our family. Thankful for the practical ideas it gives for how to disciple your children, and reminders of the importance of intentionally discipling your children from day one.
  • ecmayky
    Discipleship Gold!
    Such an encouraging resource for parents and caregivers on how to start or level up how you disciple the children/teens I’m your life!
  • Jits Dad
    Real life encouragement
    I love hearing the real talk about the frustrations and sorrows, the joys and the celebrations, and everything in between. This is like joining a conversation with wise, godly people.
  • kariRasm
    Practical. Real. Helpful
    This podcast has been deeply encouraging and helpful. Coming from a home where parenting has been a real challenge for quite some time, this podcast has helped equip us, encouraged us to not feel alone in our parenting struggles, and led us to be honest with ourselves and others, while all pointing us to the good news of Jesus for weary parents. The guests and hosts keep it real, engaging, and fun. Can’t recommend this enough.
  • cesbain
    A MUST listen for parents
    I am loving this podcast so much. They do a fabulous job of talking about the real hardships of parenting and providing practical steps to take to grow as a parent. This podcast is saturated with Biblical truths and helpful resources as well as real people who talk about the reality of parenting, not pretending to be perfect parents themselves. My husband and I are both enjoying listening to this podcast and would highly recommend it to every parent.
  • RegardingJeremy
    Such an encouragement!
    I had been longing for a podcast that would focus on authentic and practical ways to guide families in discipling their kids. Ad this has been such an encouragement to me. They point to Jesus without shame or guilt, encouraging everyone to just take a first step toward life change in their families. I can’t recommend it more regardless of the age of your kids.
    Great podcast!!!
    We love this podcast!! I look forward to it so much each week. It has lead to a lot of great discussion in our home. It’s very practical and has been both encouraging and convicting to us.
  • Upclark

  • trainer4211
    Incredible resource
    This podcast is such a Godsend. I didn’t know where to start when it comes to discipling my kids and this podcast has changed our lives. Love the hosts and they always have the BEST guests!
  • RareReview5475
    Some good conversations
    Some good conversations but way too many commercials.
  • Cool4430
    Great podcast for all stages
    Thank you for sharing these conversations! Love the gospel perspective and honesty. We are expecting our first baby any day now - these conversations make us excited and eager for the road ahead!
    Can’t wait for season 2!
    Binged this podcast after I found it around Christmas (I was searching for different perspectives on how to do “Santa” in our home). Anxiously waiting for season 2 to drop! Such wisdom shared in each podcast episode.
  • hosea21920
    Much wisdom and help for discipling my kids
    So thankful for the rich wisdom and exhortation given based on scripture and also relevant to my needs and questions.
  • @meeshyy7
    Raw, encouraging, biblical
    I cannot say enough good things about this podcast. It is relatable, biblical, encouraging and challenging all at the same time. I have an infant and still learn so much from these episodes about parenting. It’s also been an incredible source of discussion between me and my husband. Thank you for such a sweet resource in the midst of a relatively counter cultural way of raising children
  • cbizzle05
    Love it
    This podcast has been so helpful as we think about how we parent our kids and lead our family! The guests they’ve had on are amazing!!
  • LGinBG
    One of my faves ❤️
    I look forward to the new episode each week and can bank on it pointing me to Christ in my parenting. So grateful for this resource and for the people putting time and effort into having these conversations on this platform. Keep ‘em comin’!
  • Quick2feet
    Biblical and Practical
    I appreciate the practical application the hosts and guests bring to the table. Sometimes I feel that Christian parenting podcasts/books can hang out too long in the biblical theory space while failing to give some suggested options and paths forward to get you started, or they go the other way and declare, “this is the ONLY way to raise kids.” Thanks for the balance!
  • Moore Creatives
    Love This!
    I love learning how other parents disciple their children, especially these leaders I look up to. Thank you for this wonderful, practical advice!
  • Ca.Mac
    Great resource
    Very helpful perspective and practical advice. Thank you!!
  • Jenna2911
    Great podcast, one request
    Love this podcast, but I have one request. I can’t hear Adam as well as the ladies.
  • hdwalburg
    So helpful!
    I’m so thankful for this podcast! Every episode has been helpful- and for a parent in any stage of life. I love the interviews and the topics covered, not too long or short, and I’m left with lots to think about and dig deeper. Thank you for all your work on this!
  • AsenCityOfAngels
    Amazing pod. Not a parent… yet. But as a married man hoping to start a family soon, it is good to know that this resource is available for me so I can begin to learn how to disciple my future children and the children of the church.
  • gatorosie
    Goldilocks Found her Podcast!
    I’ve only listened to one of their episodes so far (Jen Wilkin) but I can already tell this is the podcast for me. I have already subscribed and downloaded all their current episodes. I’ve tried out various podcasts on Christian parenting and for one reason or another could never pull the trigger and commit. This show provides truth and solid guidance with none of the fluff or cheese. So grateful for this podcast!
  • HoneyGinn
    Excellent resource
    This new podcast is an excellent resource for families. As a grandparent, I am sharing it with my own children and all my social media friends.
  • Kelley Cummins
    So helpful!
    Really enjoyed the episode with Jen Wilkin. Highly recommend for anyone with young kids. So much helpful wisdom! Also, the hosts are excellent. Too the point and ask great questions.
  • LinseyChanel
    So encouraged and spurred on by this podcast. It is such a blessing to be pointed to truth and the Lord in the midst of raising kids. I highly recommend it!!!
  • t kendrick
    Favorite podcast!
    Easily one of my favorite podcasts. So thankful for the wisdom that is shared in here as I am in the early years raising littles!
  • RWN119
    Excellent Resource
    Praise God for Christ centered podcasts like the FDP. We are raising two boys and have a ton of questions. Thank you for this resource!
  • rachwilltree
    Sooo good
    I’m loving this podcast! Such good ideas on how to equip parents for raising Godly kids.
  • JB Audio boi
    Great discussions about an important topic
    Family Discipleship is such an important topic and doesn’t get discussed nearly enough, so I’m grateful for this podcast as a resource
  • Dillan McDowell
    I started Knowing Faith back in June. Love it! So thankful for this Family Discipleship Podcast it is so good I listen every Monday morning while getting ready and on the way to work. It’s so good, can’t say it enough! Subscribe!
  • randigeiger
    Be Encouraged!
    Adam, Chelsea, and Cassie address topics that can feel sometimes defeating or overwhelming as a parent. Together, they shed light and encouragement by reminding us how formative a Christ-centered home is to our families. Thankful for their faithfulness and willingness to share!
  • alpal0622
    Excited to begin
    I’m so thankful to know these three hosts as friends and local church leaders. I’ve respected them for years for the way they disciple the next generation in their homes and in their churches. Now that I’ve moved cities, I’m excited to continue to hear their voices on this topic.
  • A Tsegga
    Just what our family needs
    What a great podcast to hear about how to spiritually lead your family. I can’t wait for more episodes to hear about the discipleship that comes from other like-minded families. Good work guys!
  • Nolan Ryan Williams
    A Blessing in Podcast Form

  • mrchrisbenson

    After hearing the intro pod with Adam on the Knowing Faith podcast, I have been regularly checking my feeds for the first episode to drop. I cannot wait to dive in.
