Whether you’re dealing with a teething baby who won’t stop crying or a high schooler who won’t say a single word, you can identify with the challenges of parenthood. As a parent, you have the tremendous task of instilling your kids with a moral compass to guide them through the rest of their lives. With such an important responsibility, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed at times.

Parent Cue Live is a podcast designed to help parents do family better. We strive to help parents and church leaders understand how, by combining their influences, they can accomplish more for the spiritual well-being of a child than either could individually.
