Description

Culture has reduced the modern family to a joke -- informing parents they are only capable of shuttling their children from expert to expert who experiment with untested agendas. Katie and Elisha lean on their experience growing up in large families of 10 and 11 kids, to encourage parents to take back control, stop listening to popular relationship advice, and embrace their God-given role as their children's primary authority.

When their home church asked what it was like being modern day missionary kids, they discovered that the best way to answer was through filmmaking. This sent them on an incredible journey of documenting their lives and adventures on camera. And yes, their last name really is “Wild.” They now run Wild Brothers Productions. Their vision is geared towards young Christian families and to inspire them in how they play a part in God’s Great Commission. They were so glad to be a part of a missionary family because they have been able to live with a remote tribe, experience their hopelessness in sin, and then watch their lives be transformed through the teaching of the Bible.You can connect and follow The Wild Brothers through the links below:  - Website - https://wildbrothers.tv/- YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/@TheWildBrothers- Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/thewildbrothers/

Jessa wrote - "I love interior design and am always excited to team up with Jana and do projects for family and friends. Whether it’s for a home or business, we love refurbishing old pieces, shopping for bargains, and seeing an idea become a reality. I love reading—though in this busy season with young kids, I find myself working in hours of audio books on the go, rather than sitting down with a book in hand. I’m grateful to be able to spend so much of much my time with my kids. Even though some days can be a bit crazy, it is also so much fun, and I count it one of my greatest blessings to get to be their mom.   Ben loves reading good books, especially on theology and, because of this, our family library is ever-expanding. Since finishing his degree at Moody Bible Institute online, he has been actively involved in church ministry. Ben is also an adventurous foodie. He loves to take me out on dates to new restaurants, and try out the most unique menu items. He’s a sweet, patient and engaged father and husband. He loves wrestling with the boys, and cuddling his baby girl while he tells the kids a story."

great job guys! I agree on soooo many aspects of this!! I grew up celebrating and going trick or treating. but we do not celebrate with our kids because all the reasons you mentioned. so we are part of the "5" of us. lol I don't get the churches that do trunk or treat?!

Thanks for sharing. I found you through Katie's channel through Megan fox's channel. been a faithful subscriber since. thank you for being an example of what it looks like to be a Christian family in today's culture. for demonstrating "love for marriage and family" when there are Soo many negative voices even in the Christian media. God bless!

So much wisdom! My husband and I have been married for 33 years, so we have some experience, but it's still encouraging to hear your grounded, wise, Christ-centered stance on marriage and family. Thank you!
