Episode 67 - “The Dad Episodes” - Part Three

May 19th, 2019

Publish Date 5-20-19
This is Part Three of our "Dad Episodes Series"... We've been wanting to record some episodes that would speak to and encourage our Dad Listeners.  So we thought what better way to connect with all the Dads in the audience than to have a bunch of Dads on the Podcast! So we recorded a conversation with four Dads who also happen to be really good friends. This part of the conversation the guys are talking about discovering their wives "love language" and how they use that knowledge in their marriages to love their Wives well.  We hope you enjoy the conversation and are encouraged too.

Episode 65 - “Podcast News - Changes Coming”

May 5th, 2019

Publish Date 5-6-19
We are sharing some Podcast News with you our listeners this week. The Roots and Wings Podcast will be taking a hiatus for the summer months of June, July, and August. The last episode for the spring will be May 27th then we will be taking the summer to consider what's been working and what needs some tweaking for future episodes. We plan to be back with all new episodes in the Fall. Change is never an easy thing for anybody but the truth is growth and development can only come through change and that's true with this podcast as well. We want to produce the very best content we can and make the Roots and Wings Podcast vibrant resource for families. We are also excited to share a brand new resource with you... the Roots and Wings Podcast "Better Together" Facebook Group. This is a private group we've set up for R&W Pod Listeners where folks can share ideas, frustrations, concerns, victories, and encouragement.  We really do believe this idea that nobody is meant to do life alone and that we are all truly better together when we are for each other and cheering one another on. We hope this group can be a place to grow community and connectedness around this conversation about faith, family, children, marriage, work, play, and just life.

Episode 63 - “I Know What You’re Gonna Say”

April 21st, 2019

Publish Date 4-22-19
Are you saying things to your kids over and over again till they know what you're going to say before you even say it? Hopefully, what they're hearing from you over and over again are words of love and encouragement rather than constantly being corrected or reprimanded. Why is it so easy for us to be quick to criticize or correct our kids? It seems like we need to be more intentional about speaking words of affirmation and encouragement. For some reason, this does not come as natural to us. Wouldn't it be great if we told our kids we loved them so many times and in so many ways that they actually become second nature to us and our kids would just expect it?

Episode 61 - ENCORE “My Dad’s Coat”

April 7th, 2019

Publish Date 4-8-19
It's the beginning of touring season for Chip and we are working on producing some great interviews to air this spring and summer. So we're bringing you a Special ENCORE Episode this week an episode that was a favorite of our listeners when it first aired in March of last year. We're talking about the idea of helping kids to make the faith traditions they may be inheriting from us their very own. The truth is this faith of ours and the heritage of faith we may have received from our parents and grandparents probably looks a lot different than it did for them. It makes sense then that our children's and grandchildren's faith will also look a bit different than ours. This episode also features a song called My Dad's Coat that Chip wrote and features his friend Phil Keaggy on electric guitar and vocals.
