A podcast from Pastor Mark Holmen and occasional friends focusing on how to apply faith to our everyday life. New episodes will be released on every Tuesday and Thursday covering a myriad of topics and occasional guests will also join the podcasts providing great thoughts, ideas and practical wisdom. All support for the podcast will be split 50/50 between the Crosslake Log Church and Faith At Home Ministries.
God didn't intend the local church to be a drop-off centre for your children. Church is to be a partner in helping understand how to do a better job of equipping your home to be the primary place where faith is nurtured.
Who is part of your extended family? God made the family as a multigenerational unit for a reason. Everyone needs the wisdom and counsel of godly elders who may be family members or "familiar" people. Do your kids have an extended family?
Parents want what is best for their children.
We all want our kids to avoid drugs, alcohol, violence, gangs and promiscuous sexual activity. We want them to get good grades and maintain a healthy lifestyle. What part does FAITH play in leading them to make good choices and how can we be most effective in doing this as parents?
As parents, we pass on things to our children every day. They're watching us, learning from us and emulating us. The question is not ARE we passing things on - but WHAT are we passing on to our children.
Your family needs a makeover. The first step in any recovery program is to admit that you have a problem. All families have problems and can benefit from a makeover. Let's begin construction on your Home Makeover!
In whose footsteps will your children follow? God designed the home to be the primary place where faith is nurtured and lived out, but how do we make this happen. Join us for a six part discussion based on Mark Holmen's engaging book, Faith Begins at Home
Followership requires continually choosing to remain a follower. When you stop following, you are no longer a follower. What are the habits required to remain a fully devoted follower of Jesus? And you might be surprised to learn that remaining will lead to movement rather than stagnation.
Followership requires imitation and the law of imitation can be seen everywhere. We are all imitating someone, the question becomes who are we imitating? This episode will look into the habits required to be better imitators of Jesus.
In this episode Pastor Mark discusses the first law of followership - the law of buy in. Followership begins and ends with the conscious and willing choice to buy in to following and being a follower. This law requires us to have humility, respect, knowledge and trust. Are you a bought in follower of Jesus?
Pastor Mark makes the case for why we should be pursuing followership over and against leadership. Could it be that in our pursuit of leadership we have forgotten that walking with Christ is about followership?
Listen to this powerful message that Pastor Mark gave at a funeral for a 54 year old man who died suddenly. This message addresses the commonly misused statement "Everything happens for a reason" with the truth that "In all things God works for the good of those who love Him" from Romans 8:28. This episode is great for anyone who is struggling with why bad things happen.
