The Bible is filled with stories of great feats of faith, courage, and strength. But have you ever wondered about the rest of the story? Each of the great Bible characters lived ordinary lives and dealt with and experienced the monotonous, just like we do. But these moments in between the chapters gave each man and woman of Christ the opportunity to practice what it was to be a follower of God in the mundane. Join host Jerrad Lopes as he explores the idea that God gives these everyday opportunities in order for us to practice obedience and faithfulness in the little things. This episode is an opportunity to delve deeper into scripture and see more than just what is written on the page.
This week listeners will have the pleasure of being introduced to NFL free agent Cedric Thompson.

Together he and his wife have a YouTube channel where they focus on family, faith, football, and film. Join host Jerrad Lopes and Cedric as they discuss faith, football, and fatherhood. This episode is more than an interview, it's a conversation between friends and you won't want to miss it!
Every week I get asked for recommendations on family devotionals. Many dads have the desire to be the spiritual leader of their family, but often have no idea where to begin. Listed below are my top picks for Christian family devotionals. Keep in mind, family devotion time will rarely look like what you picture in your head. Your kids will have a hard time sitting still. They will shout out statements that have nothing to do with what you're talking about. And they will ask you questions that can stump any seminary professor. But remember, it is always better to stumble your way through it, than to make no attempt at all. I pray these resources will help you as you lead your family well.
