Episode 12: Investing in our Relationship with God: Spouses


This week, our wives join us on the show again to discuss how they connect with God in their personal lives, and we all discuss how hard it is to carve out time to be intentional about connecting with God as a couple. Listen now:




Parenting Fail Segment

Manderson - Supposed to get wisdom teeth out, super angry it didn’t happen. Threw off my whole week and next. (Missed Praise band again, forgot the day)

Stout - Had a series of mishaps that involved bugs, kids eating packing peanuts, and a flat tire.

Bevil - Bought the girls fraps with coffee in them; Impatience with Emma getting into everything!


Topic of the Week: Investing in our Relationship with God: Spouses


Difficulties in the role of being the spouse of a / the pastor AND the parent who by necessity shoulders the responsibilities of caring for the kids at church functions.


How do couples where both parents are pastors even work through this? We’d love to hear feedback.

How do you set aside your role as being a spouse of your pastor AND the parent in charge to invest in your relationship with God? What are the difficulties? How can we as your (ParentPastor) spouse help you to better accomplish this?


We discuss how much we all struggle with intentionally connecting with God together.

Stout - We successfully took our kids out to eat without any horrible incidents.

Bevil - Putting what I’ve read into practice with the girls: reality discipline
