015 - Teaching our Kids Civility with Jeff Coleman
How can our kids learn to be civil in a world full of anger and fighting? If we don't teach our kids basic civility, we will only see society continue to decline and division will increase. Parents should be proactive in teaching their kids civility and being positive examples in this arena.    In this Podcast Episode, I sit down with an old friend of mine, Jeff Coleman. Jeff served on the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and is founder of Churchill Creative. He also wrote a book titled "With All Due Respect: Recovering the Manners & Civility of Political Combat" (Affiliate link: https://amzn.to/3k8NFqe).   You can get in touch with Jeff at: https://churchillmedia.org

009 - The Importance of Patience
As we're helping the next generation succeed, we need to encourage them and remind ourselves of the importance of patience. As we look at Nehemiah, we see him exercise patience and wait on God to show him what to do.  Too often we feel the need to push young people into things or press them to have it all figured out. The reality is that patience is important both for them and for those who are trying to help them succeed.  Connect with me at: instagram.com/drpoulette twitter.com/drpoulette Dennispoulette.com

007: Launching Arrows
Psalm 127 reminds us of the blessing that kids are, and I have the opportunity to share some things about the way that God works in kids' lives by telling the story of one of the families in our church. I hope this Podcast episode brings value to parents who are often overwhelmed with parenting. Hopefully we can walk beside each other and partner together to teach the next generation that Jesus changes everything.  My prayer is that this Podcast can be a resource to parents as we seek to help our kids love God and love others.

004 - Direct Message with God
Too often we think of prayer as us just talking to God, when it is really us communicating with God. It includes both talking and listening to Him. It provides us with a way of connecting with Him.  In this episode, Daniel Pieper shares with us what it means to connect with God through prayer.
