  • Walking in Your Identity with Steve Petermeyer

    29 APR 2024 · What would happen if we could walk into any room bringing our identity, rather than getting our identity from it?    Following up our episode on giving kids joy permission comes an episode on how to experience joy as a byproduct of walking daily with Jesus in our true identity. When we’re not walking in our true identity, we’ll get it from one of three places: - what we have - what we do - or how we think other people see us.    In this episode, Steve Petermeyer, a coach with, joins us to talk about how we can know our true identity, identify when we’re believing a lie about who we are, and how to invite Jesus into telling us the truth.   Steve also walks through questions we can ask in our faith communities to get us beyond small talk, go below the surface, and live out our unique identity. For example, what are you doing that God never asked you to do? Are there any lies that you’re believing? What is one fear you currently have? If, as Steve says, “More is caught than taught,” when it comes to raising our children, imagine the implications of living out of our true identity as fathers and mothers.   In this episode, Steve discusses: - Why all external conflict is the result of internal conflict - The two worldviews that influence our identity and how we relate to the world around us - The two ways we act when we’re walking in our false self - Four ways to walk with God more intimately, discover your identity, and live in your true self - What it looks like to “remember” our identity as we walk with and pray to Him each day - How to recognize an emotion, confess it to God, and ask Him what the truth about that emotion really is - How we can disciple our children on how to hear from God Show Notes:   Check out Living Fearless by Jamie Winship.  Listen to Jamie Winship talk about abundance versus scarcity worldviews.  To learn more about Identity Exchange,

  • Raising Mentally Strong Kids with Dr. Charles Fay

    12 MAR 2024 · Should we argue with our kids? How do we set boundaries with them? What kind of parent does it take to raise a strong and loving child? The President of Love & Logic Institute, Dr. Charles Fay joins us to talk about his new book, with colleague Dr. Daniel Amen, This might be one of the most light-hearted conversations we’ve ever had around what is arguably the most shaming role on the planet—parenting. Dr. Fay provides super practical insights on raising strong and loving kids. Here are some key quotes from this episode: On the goal of parenting: “We bond with people who are strong and loving. We don’t bond with people who are strong but they’re cold. And we don’t bond with people who are loving but they’re permissive and wishy washy. We want to, in the best way we can, emulate God. We want to be strong, and we want to be loving.” On cultural busyness: “Families don’t go off the rails because they do too many bad things; it’s because they do too many good things.” On sibling rivalry: “When it comes to sibling rivalry, who owns the relationship problem? When we jump in all of the time and become the hero, it makes it worse.” Dr. Fay helps us understand: - What mental hygiene looks like for our kids. - Why kids are going to fight the boundaries they know they need the most. - The two ways to not get pulled into arguing with your kids and why they are so important. - How to set boundaries with kids. - What to do with phones and technology. - How to manage sibling rivalry in innovative ways that help them own the relationship problem.

  • The Spiritual Development of a Father & Mother

    5 MAR 2024 · As a parent, what are we truly aiming for? What really is the goal of all this stuff we put into a bucket called “parenting?” And, at a deeper level, have I thought about how my own spiritual journey influences how my children live out their faith and find purpose for how they live their lives? Does this matter to me as I think about how I’m engaging the task of “parenting?” In this episode, I (Josh) talk about what I'm learning from my own spiritual journey right now. From this, I propose a developmental spiritual growth model for fathers and mothers that moves us from a journey of being self-focused (fear) to others-focused (joy). I have seen these three stages of spiritual development come to light through my own spiritual growth in the past few years and would love to share them with you to see if, and how, you might resonate with them. They are: Becoming (internal healing and growth). Present (external presence where others feel seen). In community (inviting others into our journey).

  • Lessons From the Road: A Straub Fam Update

    16 FEB 2024 · Christi is back this week! Not only that, we have a new “studio” ( This week, Christi and I (Josh) sit down and talk about the lessons we’ve learned since God told us to “jump” last year and sell our house. The last six months have been a wild adventure. At first, we thought we’d be RV’ing the country. But, as God would have it, a different path was laid out before us. And on that path came lessons we may never have learned if we hadn't obeyed and jumped. In this episode, we talk about where we are now, why we pivoted, and the lessons we’re learning. God uniquely walks with each of us. We hope this episode is an encouragement to you that not only is He indeed walking alongside your family, but that He delights in it!
