Today we’re talking all things family and parenting. While neither of us have kids, we’ve brought in some experts to chat with us, and we’re also addressing what family looks like even when you aren’t married or don’t have kids. We’re big fans of Josh and Christi and hope that today’s episode is helpful as you navigate life in this season!

He and Christi also host the In This Together podcast, and in partnership with LifeWay Christian Resources, are the creators of TwentyTwoSix Parenting, a community of parents growing together to encourage the spiritual growth of their kids.
Most of all, Josh loves spending time with his wife, Christi, on the lake in their 1974 Crestliner, training their disobedient puppy, and watching their kids crush karaoke on a stage built in their dining room.
