Cultivating the Kingdom: The Podcast
Over the course of several months in 2015 and 2016, I had the distinct privilege and opportunity to interview some of the most insightful Biblical authors and theologians of our day.
My aim and prayer through these discussions was to demonstrate for my fellow domestic theologians the practical nature of theology. The things we think about and meditate on matter, because they shape our hearts and our actions. As mamas and homemakers and educators and wives and sisters-in-Christ, our aim ought to be to handle the word of God as faithfully as we are able, and to commit sit under the teaching and wise counsel of others who are further along on the journey than we are.
Through each of these conversations, I was helped and convicted and strengthened in my resolve to study the scriptures, commune with the Lord Jesus regularly, and repent of my wayward heart. Lord willing, I trust these conversations will have a similar impact in your own journey of faithfulness.
Dr. George Grant, founder of King's Meadow Study Center and Franklin Classical School, is also my pastor at Parish Presbyterian Church. He shares a wealth of knowledge about the practical nature of theology and helps us think through the gifts God gives his children in light of the incarnation.
