Welcome to Courageous Parenting podcast, a weekly show to equip parents with biblical truth on raising confident Christian kids in an uncertain world.
Hi, I’m Angie from courageous
Mom and I’m Isaac from Resolute Man.
We’ve been married for twenty one years and have seen the fruit from raising our eight kids biblically. Based on the raw truth found in the
Bible, we can no longer let the culture win the hearts of children. Too many children from Christian families are walking away from their faith by age 18, and it doesn’t have to be this way. It shouldn’t be this way. Join us as we start an important conversation about effective parenting and the all. Hi, everyone, welcome back to the podcast. Hey, guys. Well, this is a very special, unique episode where we appreciate you listening in because they are vital big changes happening to the ministry.
That’s right. So we this this podcast is going to be really fun. We’re going to share with you guys some projects that we’ve been working on. If you follow on social media, you’ve seen us give little tiny bits, sneak peeks, if you will, at some of the things that are coming and we are going to share all of that with you guys into the podcast.
And we’re so appreciate the journey you’ve been on with us. I know there’s some new listeners, quite a few, actually, but you’re along the journey to in a spin, a lot of fun. We’re coming up on three years since the podcast launched here in December.
That’s right. So next month, we’ll be celebrating that for sure.
Yeah, and we’re getting closer and closer to over two million downloads and we’re not quite there. But sometime in January, we probably hit that. So that kind of gives you a ballpark of where we’re at as a ministry, and just thousands of people have gone through courses and been impacted. We just got a message the other day of somebody that listen to a podcast about needing to pursue entrepreneurship, and they messaged us their link to their website for their new business because their husband was forced to quit a job.
That’s right. And so we’ll be sharing their link to their website to at some point here as well. Yeah, just to encourage them by you guys. We love hearing from you. We love hearing how God is using this ministry to impact your families to impact your on that case, the provision of a family, right, which is really cool. And it’s such an encouragement for us to continue on. I know you guys probably need that encouragement to to not grow weary in doing good. Amen.
And so we so appreciate you guys and we’ve talked about this concept. We’re going to lead in with several other times in other podcasts, but it’s very important it has to do with why we’re doing what we’re doing together. And all together with this ministry is that we need to be proactive in our decision making versus reactive in the simple differences. You make a decision ahead of time, even if it’s hard. Acting in wisdom and seeing the trends of things in listening to the Holy Spirit versus doing hard things once something already happens to you and you have to react because the options are not as good, usually when you’re reacting, but if you’re proactive, you can do it in your own timing. Make the appropriate investments and decisions, right?
We talk about this all the time in the parenting mentor program. When we’re talking about being proactive parents versus reactive parents, right? One example would be teaching your kids something versus reacting when they don’t do that thing correctly or when they sin in that area, right? So if you spend more time in the teaching and loving on them in that way, teaching them that expectations, if you will, then you spend less time having to correct later. And this is it’s interesting how we take that’s something that we’ve definitely been living out as parents for a very long time. But then when it comes to ministry, when it comes to even just having wisdom in how you run a business, that’s where Isaac goes, aren’t we got it? We got a shift here.
So that’s why we moved. That ended up being extremely fruitful.
If we look
Back and we’re like, Wow, thank you, Lord, thank you, God. And we feel like this is one of those other huge deals in our lives and that will impact so many other people’s lives because we’re being proactive in it. And we hope that’s the case as it pans out. And so,
So as we are sharing this with you guys, this is super exciting, but I hope that you can also learn from some of what we’re sharing today in regards to your own businesses and take a really good hard look as Christians as to what is your business reliant on and is it built on sand or is it built on the rock? And how can you start making and implementing small things today that are going to help your business to be stable and to be able to provide for your family?
That’s a good word. Such a good word. So I think we’ll kick things off with
Ephesians you guys. Ok, so Isaac and I were really encouraged as we were moving forward in dreaming about some of these new things that we’re going to share with you guys. But we want to read from Ephesians five verse 15 through 17, which says, see then that you walk circumspectly not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil. Are the days evil? You guys OK, therefore do not be unwise but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not and then just continues on and on and on. It talks about like speaking to one another and Psalms hymns and spiritual songs, which I think is important because we’re going to talk a little bit about social media and how it’s changed in the last couple of years. And that’s one of the things that we have, definitely, as we’ve shared scripture, as we shared truths, as we’ve shared spiritual encouragement. There has been a a well, first it was invisible, but now it’s not so invisible fight against the enemy. And so the days are definitely evil and we want to be wise and we want to know what God’s will is. We know that everything that’s happening today is actually part of the plan. Like there is an element of uncertainty. We talk about raising confident, courageous kids for an uncertain world in the sense that we don’t all know the details of how end days are going to look right a thousand years ago or five hundred years ago, 300 years ago, those generations didn’t know what those end days were going to look like for them, for their kids, either. But they have the same Bible, and we know that we are all in end days. We know what the Lord talks about as far as famines, pestilence, all these different things we know.
And you know what the good news is? There is certainty about how everything ends.
That’s right. So there’s both certainty and uncertainty. And I just I wanted to bring that up because it’s like, OK, so the certainty that we can have, the hope that we can have this sound purely only solely in Jesus Christ and the truth of the word
We’re real confidence comes from. And there’s no need to be fearful at all.
So that’s a good word. So we are super excited, even though we read scriptures that kind of go, Oh yeah, the days are right. Like, Oh, I think it as exciting.
I think if you’ve ever played chess, the kids get paid. If they beat me for the first time and several have been paid now. So it’s, you know, it’s been a year, but it got them to practice and work hard at it. I think chess is incredible because it works the mind and, you know, navigating through these times, leading a family, leading business ministry, things like that. It really takes strategy. The more moves you can see ahead, the better decisions you’re going to make today. And so that’s really important. So this is kind of all about that. I do want to think the over five hundred people that filled out our survey to give us feedback on all of these changes, most of them and it literally the outcome that we’re going to present to you today is from that feedback and it’s great instrumental.
It was overwhelming feedback. Actually, you guys are in a lot of alignment regarding some of the hard decisions that we’ve had to make. But I want to read to you from Matthew Chapter five. Yeah. 13 through 16, which says you are the salt of the Earth. But if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing. What’s it good for? Nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men? You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden, nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven, not you. Amen.
Amen. So you think about that having a ministry that is very much online, there’s many of those. There’s many people that preach truth in an online environment such so effective, right? But one of the things that is making the truth chipping away at the truth shared online is censorship is is the enemy using these big tech companies to prevent people to scare people from getting cancelled. And all of these things and the more reliant whatever you do is on being able to stay on a platform, the less likely you are to share the truth. If you know you’re going to be punished for it. And so we really don’t want anything to get in the way. And from confusing even us in our minds of what are the priorities here? Well, the priority is what Matthew five says, which is do not hide your light under a bushel. Even on platforms and wherever we need to be, who we are at home, how we are in public, that whether we go to work or wherever and if we can’t. You really have to kind of think about that because that’s a challenge. We’re to share where to be a light wherever we go.
It’s interesting because we were reading from Ephesians five, which was the section verse 15 and 16 earlier verses versus 15 or 17. But I also think of the section just above it, where it says in verse eight four, you were once darkness, but now you are light and the Lord walk as children of the light for the fruit of the spirit is in all goodness, righteousness and truth. So if you’re not speaking truth, you’re not. Actually representing the light fully like you can’t be a if you’re not representing the truth. So the thing that we have noticed, not all ministries, there are many good ones out there and I do see that God is blessing many different ministries, but I also see that many of them are struggling. They’re like really struggling with censorship with all kinds of things, with even the temptation to just be watered down and to not talk about the things that are the most important, which is the deception that is out there and being wise in in understanding exposing the lies like the God calls us to do that right here in verse 11, like listen in verse 10, says finding out what is acceptable to the Lord and verse 11 and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them for it is shameful even to speak of such things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light for whatever makes manifest is light.
Now, just a side note, I do think there’s some some things getting exposed recently that were very encouraging, and you can think about whatever you think those things are. But it’s just, I think that’s really encouraging. We’re starting to see some of that, but that goes into our first point, which is there is an enemy. And back to the chess board analogy is we see that rook in that bishop working together from the enemy side, trying to corner in a, you know, few moves away from check. And so we need to maneuver and be wise and make sure we’re nowhere near being in check. And you know what I mean, because we don’t want the light is God is used through this ministry to get
Taken down off of the table or put in the basket over it. I mean, even think of the little song that we sing with the kids like a little light shine. Hide it under a bushel. No, I’m going to let my light shine. And seeing that this is a huge example. Like for us, you guys, this ministry has been a family. This has been a family thing. Yes. And by God’s grace and provision, we’ve been able to bless our children when they work and they help us with the littler kids or different things so I can just shoot out here does all the work sets things up and then we shoot a podcast. I go back, you know? But the reality is that we are an example. Isaac and I are an example to our children and what it means to press on. And when you hit, when the enemy comes in and he starts barricading or trying to put up walls or obstacles, we are constantly trying to be wise. He’s a schemer. What do we know about our enemy from scripture? What do we see happening in the world? How can we maneuver and get around? How can we expose the darkness? Amen.
So amen. So the is real and the enemy is using things like Big Tech in many ways. You know, you think about these big social platforms and so forth, too, as we said, to squish out truth, biblical truth and other truth too. But biblical truth is what matters most.
And they aren’t even apologizing for it.
It’s all a collaboration where they realize it or not with the enemy, in our opinion, as we are going deeper into in times.
And so and there are two kinds of people that are obviously going to fall into that category, being tempted or deceived by the enemy, right? There’s those who are lost who literally just don’t know Jesus, and they don’t realize that they’re being used by him. And then there’s those that have literally they have been deceived and they have given their souls or their hearts over to idols, other gods, even Satan. And so we need to be aware that this is a reality of what we walk in in this world. Ephesians six goes on to say that we fight not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities of the darkness and the dark rulers of this age. There are dark rulers of this age. And so when we take all the different pits of scripture, not just one scripture, but we want to take the whole Bible in context and we see the challenges that have happened throughout history. We’re not shocked by what’s going on, but it is true that there there are people such as social media platforms where they have a lot of resources financially and otherwise, and they’re not using them for good and exposing the lie.
And eventually we’re going to get kicked off. I mean, it’s just inevitable and we’re not going to stop preaching truth, sharing truth, biblical truth and otherwise, and we’re going to share that stuff because that is as long as we possibly can. But we’re not in fear and we’re not going to put the ministry in jeopardy by having any aspect of what the ministry is doing reliant on big platforms or whether to say yes or no to us being on there. And I think that’s really important for all of us to think about and what we’re doing. We’re still going to stay on Facebook post. We’re still going stay on Instagram wherever people are that are listening. We’re going to be there as long as we can be, but as an example, we our parenting mentor program had their private group in Facebook and it was so useful because it was very, very, very effective. We could do lives, we could do all of this stuff.
People could communicate and comment on one another.
Just like that, that can be taken away.
Well, we’ve even experienced some things they many of the the people in our group have shared with us. They do not get notifications when we’re about to go live anymore. Fortunately, we’re able to send out text messages to people privately. And so we still it’s been a very effective method of communication and connecting with people in our lives. But we have over a thousand people in that group, and many of them have expressed, Are you guys going to get off of Facebook and our concerns about how it is, you know, a lot of people have left Facebook because that was the only group that they were there for. Some are still staying because that is the only group that they’re there for. And we don’t want to be a stumbling block if someone has a conscience like a check in their conscience that they don’t want to be a part of that. We don’t want our ministry to have to be reliant upon the functions that it provides in order to be getting everything that they can get out of the parenting mental approach.
So I started a process. We listened. We we were feeling the same way. I started a process of having calls with different companies and finding out even interacting with some other social media sites like Gab, looking at telecom, telegram, things like that. And they just don’t have all the pieces. Plus they’re still social media. They’re good. I believe those two are pretty good social media platforms, but there’s still social media platforms. And so we really felt, wow, we really need to move in a different direction that’s safer and provide safety for the people and privacy, and not only for the parenting mentor program, but we have resolute man, we have courageous mom, we have courageous parenting all under one ministry. And we thought, how do we can bring everything together and bring all things in one place so that it can be more effective so we can have a unified, more powerful community, whether you sign up for the parenting mentor program or not. We still want to be in community with you and to connect you to other biblically minded Christians that are intentionally parenting and resources and those kinds of things. So we really felt a calling to solve this. Now, when you try and solve something like that and you’re not using the free things on Facebook and things like that. There is serious costs involved time, effort, cost expense.
The courageous mom group will be just for women, and the Resolute Man Group will be just four guys.
Yeah, so and also the podcast, you know, we’re still going to have our podcast on iTunes and Google Play, Stitcher all the places, but you never know when when that Big Tech kind of turns against you. So one big so we’re going to we’ve loaded everything into this platform. They’ll still be out there. But if they ever get taken off over there, they’re all all still be in the one place except for the kids podcast. And we’ll get to that in a second. That will no longer be out there. It’ll only be in this one place. Also, the kinds of resources but really powerful community, all in one place. So we are launching
The be courageous app.
So we’re so excited about this. It is going to be a native app in the Google Play, in Apple stores, but also we have a web version of the app should we ever get kicked out of the stores for any reason? So it is super exciting, obviously big expense, big time and ongoing expense for every single user that uses the app. So we really had to think about this. We also want some barriers to entry. We don’t want anybody just to be able to download the app and get into it because this is for believers. This is for intentional believers that you know, really want to grow and equip the families. And so if you make something that anybody can just access, you really dilute the power of the community. So one, there’s an expense and two we want a barrier to. Not just anybody gets into it unless they really want to, and they’re willing to invest in it. Also, when we invest in things, we’re better contributor to the thing we’ve invested in. And so I think that’s going to make it a richer community as well. And so we’re launching the app is going to have topic based groups. As Angie was talking about. It’s going to have the powerful News Feed. Just like social media platforms like Facebook.
You get to have your own profile, actually, which is really powerful because then it makes it easy to to message and connect with other people as well. And so for those of you who really enjoyed the messenger feature or doing on Instagram that you’re struggling and then you don’t want to necessarily be on social media anymore, you can connect with like minded people that are in the parenting mentor program, for example, if you’re in. So and the great thing is, is this is not just for people on the parenting mentor program. Yeah. This app is going to be available like Isaac said in the App Store. And so we’re going to have this is just going to be a fun thing to watch how it
Grows and you can go to great parents for all show notes on every episode in there, we’ll put images of the app, links to it and so forth. But you can also just go into your app store and search for be courageous, and it’ll be very obvious you’ll see it right there.
Yeah. So why don’t you tell them a little bit more about the Kids podcast?
So the Kids podcast has been a huge hit. In fact, it is almost getting the same number of downloads on a weekly basis. Is this podcast so that these episodes that Angie and I do, which is amazing and I hear story after story? Yeah, I played it five times for my
Kids and we had some great conversation motivated this and so cool
Every. And it seems like every kid is a hit and people are getting so much feedback and it’s such an encouragement to our kids. But one of the things that we’ve been concerned about from the beginning and now is like a serious concern is exposure to our kids is putting our kids out there and the thoughts out there, although nothing negative has happened yet. It could wear somebody slices and dices what they say to create different meaning and things like that that have actually happened to us before. So we want to make sure that our kids, that does not happen to another thing. Our kids are awesome and they help for free, but we’re not going to do episodes every week into the
Future for three years
Or so. And nor do I think that’s right. Even though they’re getting home, school credit and things like that, we actually desire to pay them per episode. One of the things we’re going to do this might give you an idea for your kids, and something is that money. They get paid per episode, though, gets saved and they can only use it for entrepreneurial efforts. So whenever they’re ready to do something entrepreneurial, try something, even if they feel there’s less capital building and they’re doing the episodes. So that’s really cool, too. And so. So we are taking the kids podcast off of iTunes, off of Google. It’s not going to be out there anymore. The only place the Kids podcast will be is in the app, so it’ll be exclusive access only for people in the app because these are believers paying monthly to to use the app and be part of the community in a deeper part of the one million legacies movement. So what we decided to do and we look at the pricing and how all this works, it’s going to only be eight point ninety nine dollars per month. So when you download the app, it’ll ask you to subscribe eight dollars and 99 cents per month.
And then that will just charge you monthly and you have unlimited access to the app with one caveat. There will be a parent team mentor program group within the app that is private only for people who paid for the parenting mentor program. And as soon as their group starts, it opens and it forever stays open in the app for them. Obviously, people that join the Parenting Mentor program are going to get the app for free for three months and then at the end of three months, they’ll start charging them. Now the question comes up OK, well, what about my spouse? I mean, you can have a resolute man group in there and things like that. Do we have to pay eight ninety nine twice? The answer is no. Once you pay eight point ninety nine, you’ll get emailed a code a discount code that takes seven dollars off and only be a dollar ninety nine for your spouse after you sign up. So that’s really cool. So we wanted to make that really, really easy. But there’s going to be articles, all kinds of stuff. So now anything more about that?
No, I think you covered everything.
Ok, so now the other exciting thing is to expand the movement, have reminders in people’s homes when they’re drinking coffee and putting their hat on, looking in the mirror, when they’re wearing something, when their kids are wearing things are reminders to be courageous, to be resolute with two shops watching.
That’s right. So we for many years we’ve had the courageous mom shop, but now it is getting rebranded, revamped and it’s going to be called the Bee Courageous Shop
Because it’s not just for moms. That’s right. Moms and dads are being greeters.
That’s right. And so we have to be courageous shop, and it’s going to have everything from some totes which moms might like to use when they’re, you know, people use bags for grocery shopping.
Homeschooling stands for that very cool trucker hat.
That’s right. So we have to stand firm hats. We have baby onesies, which you guys, you know, we just kind of felt called to make some baby onesies that we’re going to one remind moms and dads when, you know, sometimes babies can get fussy at times. And I know that for me and myself, I have to constantly preach to myself with little ones, right? So we have toddler shirts, we have toddler sweatshirts, we have onesies that say things. Worthy, blessed, loved, known we have. We also have some gender specific onesies, which I really am excited about because there’s such a fight and an attack really on our children of today to create confusion. And we know that Satan is called the author of Confusion and Scripture. And so we want to be clear, so we made some onesies that our God made me a boy and God made me a girl, therefore gender specific.
And there’s there’s more. The bugs are just incredible, so we can’t wait to see you guys having the mugs. You know how we always have mugs and so forth. And so it’s just super excited. And the Resolute Man Shop is going to have the Eagle Mug and the dad mug and all these really quick things. The resolute man hats, the, you know, be resolute pat and say resolute, not passive. Hats, eventually. And there’s more things coming shirts, be resolute shirts and things like that just for us guys to remind ourselves to stand strong and protect our families, but also to project in to create a movement of men rising up and leading their families, create a movement of women rising up and being courageous and men to being courageous to. And it’s really putting them together. We all have to reject passivity and be courageous and be resolute.
And I think to, you know, a lot of you guys have reached out to us over the last three years because Isaac and I oftentimes have coffee or really cool cups mugs in our podcast. So we’ve got a lot of messages over the years saying where you get your mug and, you know, the Bible verses on them in different things. And so we thought that it would be cool to create some mugs that are like that. We’ll share pictures with you guys on social media as well. But you guys, we need to remember, we need to preach to ourselves. The truth constantly, isn’t that right? And so like, I know that as a mom in the bee courageous shop, one of the products that was our most popular product when we had the courageous moms shop is that I love being a mom. Is is that is that right? And so we have mugs and we have a bag that say, I love being a mom because, you know, every mom would say, I love my kids. But asking someone if they love being a mom is a very different question. And we need to embrace that. We need to embrace the role that we have. And so my prayer is that as moms are drinking out of their coffee cup that says I love being a mom and they’re getting refueled for the day, they look at it and they go, OK, yeah, I do. I need to remember that. Do my kids feel that? Do they feel like I love being a mom or do they feel like a burden and change their lives?
Amen. Hebrews Ten twenty fourth or twenty five? And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another and so much the more as I see the day approaching. So obviously this is talking about going to church, being in fellowship with one another, but we can also take this outside of the church and continuing and fellowship. And you know what we really felt even at church and I maybe you have a church that’s really biblical and people are being courageous and resolute, but a lot of churches there is. It’s hard to find those really courageous and resolute people that are standing firm for the gospel and not backing down and being the same person they are in private and public and those kinds of things. So we thought, Wow, this app will be we can all come together, stir each other out in good works. And then when we go back to our churches, we can share that we can encourage others, we can exhort others, and that can have a massive impact. And so we’re super excited about that. And you know, we’re committed as ever. I think this shows it to the one million legacy’s movement of impacting one million families in their legacy. Just think about the generational impact that’s going to have. Angie said this the other day. We’ve talked about this to our kids, which is, you know, we’re going to live like Jesus coming back tomorrow. But we’re also to live in this other space of we’re going to grow old and our kids are going to grow old and their kids are going
To grow up for a hundred generations.
And so we have simultaneously need to have both focuses because we don’t know
When Jesus is coming back and we don’t know when our day is going to be your last day. I think that sometimes there’s such a huge focus on Jesus coming back, which we should be focusing absolutely
Live like that. But the Bible also says that life is like a vapor. And I think that when we hear of people passing dying or people who are experiencing loss, whether that’s miscarriage or or any other kind of loss, we are reminded to live every day as if it was our last. Because we don’t know. Every day is a gift from God. And I think you know that for us, you guys is one of the main motivators for wanting to impact. And yes, we say one million legacies because there’s so much. Easier to keep truckin forward and pushing to have something when you have that, you have a target that you’re going after, for sure. But you know what, really? We just we’re we’re so thankful that you guys have enabled us to be able to partner with God in the great commission in a way that hasn’t compromised our family, but has allowed us to grow and to reach many people for the Kingdom of God to encourage those who need it, encouraging to share truth with people who were lost to encouraging people to stand firm and grow. And I can’t help but want to go back to our main theme verse, which is Joshua 01:09 says. Have I not commanded you so as that God’s saying, I suggest this. He commanded, Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage. Do not be afraid nor be dismayed for the Lord.
Your God is with you wherever you go. And I think that that we have listeners all over the world. God is with you wherever you go. He’s with you in every circumstance. And it’s not even like where you live geographically. God is with you. Yes, that’s true. But for the moms who are trying to decide if they’re going to have a baby in hospital or in a birthing center at home, guess what? God goes with you wherever you go. For the dads who are trying to decide where they’re going to work and God goes with you wherever you go. We are here in this generation for purpose. Our kids were put here in this generation for a purpose. Our kids were chosen to be our kids. God chose you to be your kid’s parents. How many different messages do we all need to be reminded of on a daily basis to have our mind and our eyes set on the goal so that we can endure in the moment when things are hard? And I’m just thankful for this opportunity. I’m excited for what God has in store. The stores are going to be in the app along with the podcasts, along with the groups, the courses, all the things are going to be there. And so it’s going to be a place where you guys can find all the things you need
And you can find them also resolute and courageous romcom and grace parenting.
