Free doughnuts are the best! So is using our gifts and talents to help others. In this podcast, Bob explains how he tries to notice the needs of people around him – neighbors, friends, people at church – and how he boldly steps out to serve.
Oh brother, Average Boy talks about his brother. There's never a dull moment around his house with two wild brothers running around. After getting in trouble at church, Bob gives some great tips for getting along with siblings.
Bob and Jesse talk about the most important decision anyone will ever make – believing in Jesus Christ as their Savior. Finding forgiveness in Christ is a lot like saving a turtle during a torrential rainstorm – you'll have to hear it to believe it.
In this podcast, Bob (aka Average Boy) shares about his kickball skills - or lack thereof. Fortunately, because of his faith in Jesus, Bob is on the ultimate winning team. Instead of defining himself by what he does in sports or the classroom, Bob encourages everyone to find their identity in Christ.
Bob tries to start some healthy habits to take better care of his body. But there's a problem – whenever he gets the treadmill above "5," it's hard for him to eat his jelly doughnut. This podcast also dives into juicing, getting enough sleep, and why koala bears are so strong.
Have you ever gone to a store and got stuck behind a line of mannequins? That's what happens to Bob. Fortunately, his youth pastor is there to rescue him – and a lady who's almost crushed by a mannequin. Youth pastors, parents and older adults can be a big help in our lives.
Being responsible takes a lot of responsibility. Average Boy (aka Bob Smiley) learns that fact when he's house-sitting for a neighbor who has some hisss-terical cats. He also finds out that house-sitting has nothing to do with sitting on the roof of a house.
Popularity is overrated. Just ask Bob (aka Average Boy), whose "close friends" at school call him Mark, Timmy, or Jim. Instead of seeking lots of friends, Bob discovers it's best to have good friends who encourage him to grow closer to God.
"Every word of God is perfect." That's what it says in Proverbs 30:5. The Bible is alive and active, changing people's hearts. In this podcast, Bob and Jesse give tips about reading God’s Word … and why it's not acceptable to shout in a library.
There's more to manners than just saying "please" and "thank you." This podcast shows how having good manners shows respect and spreads God's love. Plus, Bob explains why it's not a good idea to have a friend try and throw a Skittles into your nose.
