Disciplining Children
Hey friends! Thank you for being here as we share our hearts on some rather important (and debated) philosophies when it comes to disciplining children. We are limited in our direct experience as parents in that our children are very little, but we do have perspective from our childhood that we want to offer as teaching points as well. Our goal is not to tell you what is right and what is wrong, nor how you ought to discipline your own children, but merely to have a discussion and provide our two cents. ...

A Discussion on Postpartum Depression
Thank you all for your questions and perspectives for this episode!  We learned a ton and hope you found our discussion beneficial for you if you've ever walked (or are now walking) in a season of anger, frustration, uncertainty, or worry due to postpartum depression.  It is totally possible and normal for fathers to experience the ripple effects of this also, and their feelings should not be stifled.  Press into the Lord Jesus with your spouse and communicate your hearts to one another during a time of pea...


10 Christian Habits We Do and Don't Subscribe To
Hey y'all!  Thanks for being here.  We had a blast with this episode, and as you can imagine, there's a ton we wanted to unpack as we share some of these things that are deeply important to us.  As a disclaimer, if there is something that we say we don't subscribe to, that doesn't mean we absolutely never do it, rather, we openly acknowledge it as wrong and (by God's grace) fight to rid it from our habitual nature.  In other words, we are not wanting to come off as hypocritical, and instead want to echo Pau...

Q&A - Baby #3, Marriage Lessons, Moving to California

Society' Ideas on Masculinity
Hey everyone!  So glad you're here!!  On this episode, we wanted to take an honest look at some of the challenges, struggles, and ideologies that our culture is immersed in regarding what it means to be masculine.  In an age of questioning the past traditions in hopes of a better tomorrow, we who follow Jesus ought to be on the cutting edge of conversations that describe the roles, responsibilities, and philosophy of manliness.  In a world that has perverted and even manipulated what it means to be a man, h...


What Convicts Us
Hey friends!  This episode gets a little juicy as we open up our hearts--our souls--to you in attempt to express the things that convict us to our core.  It is important to understand where we are coming from when we speak of convictions.  We are Bible-believing followers of Jesus and we choose to trust Him instead of the world as our standard of truth.  That foundation is what we are building on and motivated by in our convictions.  The word "conviction" means more than just a feeling or an opinion.  It is...

Seeing Halloween Through a Biblical Filter
How should Bible-believing followers of Jesus respond to Halloween? Is it a harmless holiday for candy and costumes, or is there a deeper evil and spiritual darkness behind it? Join us and our mentor, Darry, as we discuss some of the origins and meaning behind Halloween and how the spiritual realm plays a role in this holiday.

60: Should You Indoctrinate Your Children?
Hey y'all!  On this episode, we share some thoughts on what it means to indoctrinate, teach, guide, and discipline your children.  Coming from the Judeo-Christian worldview, the Bible--God's Word--is our guide and ultimate source of absolute truth.  You may not agree with us, and that is okay--just know if you aren't teaching your child as they grow, someone or something WILL teach them.  Our prayer for ourselves and for you all listening is that God would shape and prepare us for the calling to guide and i...

We had an incredible getaway last week, and we are so grateful for all that God showed us along the journey.  If we can encourage you to do anything from this week's episode, it would be to retreat from the chaos and day to day stressors (just as Jesus did several times) and connect with God through the Holy Spirit and His Word.  In a world where we all run on empty so often, it is more important now than ever to hit the "pause" button and commune with the Lord in peace.  We pray for each of you listening t...

18: Taking a Sabbatical
We all know vacations are essential to resting, recharging, and relaxing from the grind of work--but even vacationing can bring stress and anxiety with so many things to plan and places to go.  On this episode, we are talking about a trip we are taking as a family (dogs included!) around the beautiful state of Michigan.  Partially because we only get about 3 months of nice weather during the year, but mostly because we are taking a sabbatical (or spiritual retreat) to get away for a bit and hear from God on...


17: Doing vs Being: The Story of Mary and Martha
In this episode, we focus on two tendencies we all have as people:  There are those who are "doers" (Martha) and those who are "be-ers" (Mary).  Think to yourself what you would do if Jesus told you he was coming over for dinner tonight.  What would be your first thought?  Would you scrub every inch of your house?  Put away the monster pile of laundry in your room?  Prepare the most scrumptious feast anyone has ever had?... Or would you simply leave all that on hold and just spend time with the Lord? Jesus ...

16: Opening Up About Past Drug Use feat. Melanie
Hey guys!  We are SO excited to have Melanie join us on this episode to share a little about where we've been in our past and where God has brought us since.  Your past is not who you are--and if you are in Christ, you are completely forgiven for everything.  If you or someone you know has ever struggled to believe God can truly change a heart and make a new creation out of us, even in spite of all the wrong we've done, this episode is for you.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/asformeandmyhousepod...

15: Taming The Tongue
If you're like us, you often regret a lot of the things you say.  Whether it be unkind or hurtful words, we all struggle to get control of our tongues.  The Apostle James gives us clarity and instruction on how we as Christians ought to submit to the Holy Spirit so that we are able to speak gently and lovingly to others.  Also, stay tuned as we announce some new things happening on this podcast in the future!  Prayers welcomed!--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/asformeandmyhousepodcast/support...


14: Being in a Slump
Guys.  This is probably the most transparent episode we've done because we are in the midst of going through a slump currently.  I'm sure you'd agree its far better to be open and honest about life when you go through certain seasons instead of putting on a mask pretending everything is okay, because the more we let our walls down, the more God can use our situation to be a testimony of his goodness.  James 5:16 tells us to confess our sins to one another and pray for each other so that we may be healed.  I...

13: Following Jesus in High School & College
Real Life versus Fiction"Nothing is so beautiful and wonderful, nothing is so continually fresh and surprising, so full of sweet and perpetual ecstacy, as the good.No desert is so dreary, monotonous, and boring as evil.This is the truth about authentic good and evil.With fictional good and evil it is the other way round. Fictional good is boring and flat, while fictional evil is varied and intriguing, attractive, profound, and full of charm."Simone WeilIn On Science, Necessity, and the Love of God Oxfor...

12: Biblical Advice on Parenting
As new parents ourselves, we are constantly seeking wisdom and advice from those who have been discipling and parenting their children much longer than us. It just so happens that our church is in the middle of a series on relationships, and this past week was all about parents and children! We utilized our sermon notes from the message preached by Pastor Brad Powell, because we thought what he said was too good not to share. Whether you’re a new parent like us, been a parent for a long time, or are even in...


11: A Discussion on Evolution and Creation
We asked and you answered... In this week’s episode, we take a look at some of the science and evidence supporting the case for Creation and the Genesis account. For the most part, society seems to accept the notion of macro-evolution because that is what the scientific community at large is promoting. Is there an agenda to all this? Is the evidence really there to support kinds changing into other kinds? Our youth today are naturally skeptical and tend to question everything. I mean, can you blame them? We...

10: Our First Date
***CRINGE WARNING*** Our first date story was nothing short of awkward with a little fun and silliness mixed in, so pretty much exactly what you'd expect.  Even though it's been nearly 7 years, we both remember the day like it was yesterday.  It's crazy how vivid memories can be when a significant life event happens.  If you're dating or actively seeking a potential mate, we hope this episode encourages you that there are still people out there who are committed to serving the Lord while in a dating relatio...

9: How to Be a Bold Christian
If you're like every other follower of Jesus, you've felt unqualified to share the gospel with your friends, family, or even strangers at some point in your life.  We hope this episode serves to give you some insight and practical tools to equip you to be bold in sharing the truth of Jesus Christ.  Whether you are a new Christian or have been walking with Jesus for decades, the Bible calls us to preach the good news to all the world and to do so with boldness.  Your personality type and head-knowledge have ...


8: Avoiding The Trap Of Social Media
This week’s episode hits home with us for several reasons. Being that so much of our livelihood and work comes from social media, it is hard at times to know where that happy medium of healthy social media consumption lies. Perhaps you’ve felt the toxic effects of social media in your life—whether deliberately or subconsciously. Maybe you’ve seen the great potential and purposes it can serve as an encouragement in your life or others. Still, maybe you’ve experienced a combination of good and bad. Regardless...

7: Q&A Sesh
We had so much fun reading and answering your questions!  We plan on doing these sporadically from time-to-time, so let us know what you want us to answer next time.  This episode, we talk about a variety of things from awkward dating moments to how we make time for each other as we adjust to life as new parents.  Our goal with doing Q's and A's is to always be transparent and honest with you all, and make Jesus known through our lives.  Enjoy!--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/asformeandmyhousepod...

6: The Truth About Easter
This might come as a surprise to you, but Easter is actually not all about bunnies and chocolate. In reality, Easter is the celebration of the greatest event in the history of the world—Jesus’ resurrection. In this special edition episode, we are joined by our friend and mentor, Darry Nagel, who has taught us not only what the Bible says, but how to study it for ourselves. Darry shares the true story of Easter from a Biblical perspective, and as always, brings it full-circle back to the Gospel. This Easter,...


5: How to Study the Bible
Do you have a desire to know God better through His Word, but don't know how to do it or where to start?  In this episode, we want to give you some practical tips that we use when it comes to getting the most out of your time studying scripture.  We pray you will be encouraged by this episode to fall more in love with the God who loves you and made you fearfully and wonderfully.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/asformeandmyhousepodcast/support...

4: God's Will For You: Where Purpose and Passion Collide
We've all heard the cliche saying, "God has a wonderful plan for your life," but if we're honest, most of the day-to-day, mundane tasks of life don't seem all that "wonderful."  In this episode, it's our hope to effectively share what it means to truly understand God's will for each and every one of us, so that you can walk in the joy of the Lord regardless of what you do.  While society puts money, power, and fame on the highest pedestals of success, the Christian worldview seeks to make relationship with ...

3: His Side: Saving Yourself Until Marriage
By popular request, Jordan shares his experience from a guy's perspective about waiting until marriage.  Of course it isn't the popular opinion (especially among the male population) but it's what God knows is best for a successful and thriving happily ever after.  If you are a girl looking for encouragement for your boyfriend or fiancé; or if you are a guy wondering if you're alone in your choice to wait until marriage to become sexually active, this episode is for you.--- Support this podcast: https://anc...


2: Pre-Marriage Expectations: Lessons We Learned
Tune is as we share some stories about our background and upbringing, and how those experiences affected what expectations we brought to our marriage.  We gained a wealth of insight from going through a pre-marriage class at our church a few months before we got married, and we strongly recommend anyone listening and soon to be married to do the same!  In particular, we get into the details about how we handle household roles and responsibilities, parenting, finances, personal time with each other, and time...

1: Intro
We are beyond thrilled to begin this journey with the Lord and all our listeners!  In this first episode, we share out motivation for what got us to start this podcast and what we pray God does with it.  Stay tuned for future episodes every Wednesday!  We will be discussing faith, marriage, parenting, family, finances, work, school, and more.  God bless!--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/asformeandmyhousepodcast/support...
