In this mini series on Christian parenting we will dig into God's Word for direction on Christian parenting. This episode will present an overview of the series which will include discussions on Christian Instruction, Discipline, the Relation between the Husband and the Wife, and teaching your children responsibility.

Do you feel lonely? It's hard not to feel isolated and alone in this time of self-isolation. Even for the Christian who has been assured by Jesus that He would be with us always, it is very easy to feel alone and depressed in these uncertain times. Pastors Tom Naumann and Ben Libby take us through Scripture to see five different examples of believers who felt alone, yet they turned to their LORD to see that He was truly in control. We may feel alone, but through faith in Jesus, we know that no matter how we feel, the love of the LORD always shines through the clouds of uncertainty.

Dig into the Scriptures for answers to these questions and more!
