Episode 019: Karen Stubbs on Biblical Parenting

Parenting is hard, isn’t it? Far too often we find ourselves frustrated and beaten down, feeling like we lack the encouragement and biblical wisdom to raise a family.

If that rings true, then this episode of the iDisciple Podcast is perfect for you! David is joined in the studio by Karen Stubbs, a renowned author, speaker, and motherhood guru. Karen shares with us the story of how God used her tough years as a young military wife and new mom to mold and prepare her to one day launch Birds on a Wire, an international ministry dedicated to equipping and encouraging mothers.

David and Karen’s conversation is filled with stories and advice that will resonate with anyone struggling with the fear and confusion of parenthood. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman, an expecting parent or an empty nester, this discussion will leave you with practical parenting wisdom and your spirits raised!

We hope and pray that the wisdom Karen imparts on you during this episode radically changes your family and gives you the boost of inspiration you need!
