Join Ed, Amy and Nay Dawson as they talk through a Christian approach to Halloween for parents. We can use Halloween as an opportunity to talk to our children about fearless faith, living distinctively and loving generously. It is also the one time when our community knocks on our door. How can we love them, offer them something of Christ without compromising our deep conviction that Christ is the light of the world?People: Ed Drew - Director of Faith in Kids Amy Smith – Writer for Faith in Kids Nay Dawson lives in Southampton with her husband, Jon and two beautiful daughters. Nay works with IFES Europe as their Regional Training Co-Ordinator, previously she worked for UCCF since graduating in a variety of roles. She is the founder of Passion for Evangelism. PfE is a network of creative, public female evangelists. Nay runs an Etsy shop called Houses of Light that sells attractive postcards that tell stories that raise curiosity about Jesus.Quote from Nay:“It may well be that we don’t trick or treat ourselves. My two daughters get really scared of that kind of stuff. But we were so busy last year. All we were doing was constantly filling up this box to give away ‘gift bags of light’. If you’re unconvinced, go back to Scripture to see what is says about being light of the world, and if Jesus is the light of the world, we have this incredible opportunity to bring light into darkness and point to the light on this dark night.”Purchase Faith in Kids’ Latest Book.

I get great joy if I see my children at church talking to older adults in the service. A way of supporting each other in our parenting is by talking to other teenagers and kids, being interested in them. I know my children love it when other people come to talk to them and that then gives grounds for support, advice, wisdom - it just slips into the conversation in a really natural, easy way.'Purchase our Latest Book:The book Meals with Jesus from Faith in Kids in partnership with The Good Book Company can be ordered here (https://www.thegoodbook.co.uk/meals-with-jesus).Pre-order our new Christmas book coming in time for December 2021:If you're unfamiliar with the world of publishing, just to let you know, orders are of course fab and we've made this to help you and your kids know Christ eternally, but pre-orders REALLY help with at the publishing end!

Join Ed, Amy and Mark as they discuss life going back to school after the time we have had...The "back to school" week can be difficult for a number of reasons - there can be big emotions around starting a new school, or even just returning after a good Summer holiday. Perhaps this is even more pronounced with all the disruption around COVID. Sometimes we can feel like a spiritual failure if we experience these difficult emotions, but actually, they can be a helpful warning light to help us see that something is not right. Emotions are not a good barometer for our spiritual health.What would be a distinctively Christian approach to things like anxiety, depression and panic? We often need to preach to ourselves, reminding ourselves of what we know to be true about God; going back to the cross, where the many wonderful aspects of God's character come together. How can we communicate this in a simple way for children to understand? "Know the Lord" - remembering what his track record is, and therefore what he will do in the future. Do not be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. We don't know what school is going to be like, but what do we know? We know that God is trustworthy. How does God treat people through the Bible? That shows us what God is like, and how we will care for us through our fears. The job of a parent is to work out what can I say about God that speaks into my child's fears so that they can say "I'm ok because He has me".Psalm 46 speaks powerfully into situations of anxiety and helps us get to the point of trusting God amid storms, rooting our response in the truth of verse 1: "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble."What does it look like for a child to say "God is our fortress?" Knowing that God is with us through all the storms; he is our safe place.People: Ed Drew - Director of FIKAmy - Faith in KidsMark Meynell - born in London and works as a freelance writer, a chaplain in Whitehall, and Director (Europe & Caribbean) for Langham Preaching (part of Langham Partnership). Married to Rachel, they have 2 children – Joshua and ZannaQuote from Ed:'Part of parenting is making peace with the fact that your children are safer in the ark, in the distressing situations of life, than they would be if they never left your kitchen. God is their fortress, and in those moments we have an opportunity to pray with them and say "thank you that today you were their fortress; thank you that today you are our fortress and thank you that you have kept us safe."'Purchase our Newest Book:The new book Meals with Jesus from Faith in Kids in partnership with The Good Book Company can be ordered here (https://www.thegoodbook.co.uk/meals-with-jesus).If you have any thoughts: podcast@faithinkids.org.

Join Ed, Andrew, Katrina and Zoe as they discuss life at the 15-18 parenting stage.15-18s are diverse; they're becoming more than just a product of their family and are still working out who they are. Clearly, the greatest thing that we could want for our children is for them to have faith in Jesus, but this is something we can't generate for them; we need to pray for the Holy Spirit to do that. But that doesn't make us passive - as parents we are called to walk alongside them, model the life of faith and listen to what they're saying.It can be a challenge to direct them in good paths while also letting them make their own decisions - they are getting close to being adults, so as parents we need to start letting them make their own mistakes. In this age group, parents will be transitioning away from just telling their children to read the Bible, and moving towards letting them decide while modelling a genuine spiritual life. Your children will pick up on how you pray, how you love one another in your marriage, how you deal with disagreements, how you relate to others. Young people are open to ideas, and are open to honest people who respect them and listen to them.We want to really drive home with our children that we will love them no matter what - regardless of what bad things they may do, we will still love them. They need to know that they can express doubts and ask genuine searching questions; they're growing up in a world that is a lot less black-and-white than the world we grew up in, and it takes courage to accept that a lot of issues are more grey than we might like.People: Ed Drew - Director of FIKZoe - Teacher and parentKat and Andrew - Parents of children around the 15-18s age bracket!Quote from Kat:"The generation of that age group are living in a very grey world... I think it's so important that our Christian young people can work that through in a safe environment - they've got to be able to say "How do I know what's right? ...And there's got to be a safe space at home and at church for them to be led through it.'Purchase our Newest Book:The new book Meals with Jesus from Faith in Kids in partnership with The Good Book Company can be ordered here (https://www.thegoodbook.co.uk/meals-with-jesus).If you have any questions or comments, please get in touch with us at podcast@faithinkids.org.

I found this podcast so helpful and so relevant to current life. the hosts are so real and normal. it's great having such a good podcast from the UK as some of the examples felt so much more relevant to my life than I sometimes fine with those from the US.
