Knock, knock. Who’s there? Banana. Banana who? Average Boy tells Jesse about his grandma’s amazing banana bread, which causes Jesse to share some banana-themed jokes. Bob also talks about the power of prayer when it comes to studying for history tests. Of course, God gives us what we need, according to His will—not everything we ask for or want. Bob and Jesse end by helping a listener who wants to be more like Jesus, especially in how she treats her brothers.   Check Out AB’s Cover Art for His New Book!   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

Let’s play ball! Baseball, that is. When AB’s youth group starts their baseball season, Bob is the first pick . . . or at least the first one to show up. His youth leader is so excited that he sends AB way out to right field. AB is a bit bored until something hits him—twice! That’s when Bob remembers even when he fails at something, he’s always loved by God no matter what!

Average Boy’s dad surprises the family with a trip to an escape room. Bob can’t wait because he always pays detail to attention!

Christmas break is over, and AB has emptied his mind of all knowledge. This turns out to be a big problem when his art teacher posts a riddle on the board. Bob immediately solves the riddle . . . incorrectly. As other students figure out the riddle and begin working on their projects, frustration sets in. What will AB do to find the answer? Also, Jesse unmasks the most famous animal artist in a classic Jesse joke.   Check Out AB’s Cover Art for His New Book!   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

Bob gets a hamster from a friend at school. Just one problem: he “forgets” to ask his parents. Then there’s the second problem: the hamster turns out to be an escape artist. AB, and his mom, discover this hamster’s Houdini-ness when Mom does laundry and grabs clothes out of AB’s closet. Rats! Oh wait, that’s later in the podcast. Bob’s dad also teaches him a valuable lesson—if you can’t be trusted with little things, then you can’t be trusted with bigger ones.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

Average Boy waits until the last minute to finish his semester-long science project and gets into hot lava! That’s because he has to make a working volcano, complete with molten mass. Between his project looking like a melted pig, which appears delicious to his dog, or dissolving in lava, AB ends up scrambling to turn something in. Thanks to his quick wit, AB learns that God gives us different strengths and talents. Bob and Jesse also answer a question about their life verses from the Bible.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

Average Boy thinks his dad is all wet for wanting to see how much he’s playing a water-based game on his phone. The truth is it’s AB who’s drowning with a cellphone addiction! After realizing how much time he’s wasting on his phone, AB decides to spend his time more wisely. And he starts by answering a question from a listener who’s having friendship trouble.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

Bob introduces himself as “the daring David of the day determined and driven to deliver deep dapper distinguished divine disciples devoted to discombobulating the Devil.” Jesse soon finds that means AB has faced off with a giant bully using a giant Bible on Bring Your Bible to School Day. The outcome is surprising! But not as surprising as how many times baseball is talked about in the Bible or how powerful the Word of God really is.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

For their family vacation, Average Boy and his family go on a cruise! A little mishap with his passport delays them a bit, but as soon as Bob hits the deck, he’s in full gear.

When Average Boy plays hide-and-seek with his friend Billy, Bob ends up scaring his mom! To make up for it, he treats her extra nicely and serenades her in the grocery store. Mom forgives him and asks AB to pick out some apples for a delicious dessert . . . well, you can guess what happens. In the end, Bob learns you can pick your friends and pick an apple, so make sure to pick good ones.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

School is out. Summer has finally come! With his best friend, Billy, away on vacation and no Wi-Fi at his home (don't ask why...), Average Boy gets bored pretty quickly. When Bob admits that he’s bored, his dad suggests doing chores! Average Boy doesn’t just work around his house, he "helps" out neighbors by mowing their lawns. In the end, AB realizes a God-sized imagination beats Wi-Fi (and boredom) any day. Bob and Jesse also help a listener with her Christian walk.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   Parents, if you've listened to any of our podcasts, please give us your feedback.
Average Boy’s dad takes him and Billy to the best place on earth—Henry Hippo’s Pizza and Prizes. They don’t really go for the pizza, but for the games and prizes! While playing Skee-ball, Bob climbs the ramp and drops several balls in the top hole, even though his dad told him not to cheat, and even though he knew better. When one of the balls gets stuck, along with Bob’s hand, nothing can save him from a hippo stampede and his dad’s disappointment. It doesn’t take long for this pizza podcast to come ‘round to simple truth from the Bible: always obey your parents.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

Jesse makes balloon animals, and Average Boy competes in a fishing tournament. The only problem? AB doesn't have a boat, and he didn’t even register to compete.

Lights, camera, action! Average Boy is in a movie! Okay, it's really a promotional video for his church, but it's still exciting! Even though AB has some “creative differences” with his youth pastor, he learns the most important thing is to put God first. Bob and Jesse also give a listener advice about not getting so mad about things.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

There is no perfect podcast, but this one comes close. Actually, it doesn’t because only Jesus is perfect. Bob discovers how imperfect he is, especially with keeping his promises. When he fails to pick up something he promised to do, it almost results in his grandma getting injured. Bob and Jesse also help out a listener in Texas with ways to get through hard times in life.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

Average Boy has a gift for being funny. But are there times when it’s best not to be funny or tell a joke? Yup. Average Boy shares some appropriate—and some not-so-appropriate—times he used humor. From setting off the sprinklers in science class to getting stuck in traffic on the way to baseball practice, Bob learns (or does he?) the proper time and place to make people laugh.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!

A youth group Bible study at Average Boy's house means it's time to clean up! As people arrive, Bob makes sure there are plenty of snacks. But as they are reading Scripture, Bob's dad makes a distracting announcement!

When Average Boy encounters the Terrible Threesome at school, he tries to be nice. As usual, they make fun of him. And not just him, but also Jimmy—a new kid who is in a wheelchair. Before AB can say anything, Jimmy rolls up and makes the Threesome super nervous with his confidence and humor. You’ll also meet Everley and discover that all people are created in the image of God.   Click here to visit the Average Boy Store to gain access to books, devotionals, subscriptions to Clubhouse Magazine, and much more!   We'd love to hear from you!
