I praise God that we are now the #1 iTunes podcast for Christian parents. But it wasn't always that way.
I started the Truth.Love.Parent. in September of 2016 with absolutely no fan base, but early on -- even though I knew it was desperately necessary to publish a podcast dedicated to Christians who wanted to become intentional, premeditated, diciple-making parents -- I considered stopping the project due to lack of funding.
But the Lord intervened and not only answered the gargantuan need of a consistent podcast hosting site (see TLP Snippet #4 for the miraculous story!), but He also used our growing TLP Family of premeditated parents to confirm that we needed to continue our work . . . and take it to the next level.
So we developed a social media presence and started a website which we hope will one day be the premier hub for all that is parenting. There you'll find our podcast and free Truth.Love.Parenting.Course, "25 Days to Becoming a Premeditated Parent." You can also join the TLP Family, receive free counsel by emailing [email protected], and much more.
I'm even writing a free eBook for parents that presents God's cure for family strife and creating many more tools for moms and dads who want to lead their families like Christ leads the church. All of that to say - we're working hard to equip the families we serve!
And that's where you come in, by joining our Patreon family, you'll not only assist us with the day-to-day operations of TLP, but you'll also play a part in our future, your future, and the future of other Christian parents! With your patronage, you'll allow us the time and resources to not only produce multiple shows a week, but also create more content, purchase better equipment, design new parenting tools, and get me out on the road to speak in churches.
Let's Get More Specific
Better Equipment: We've received many compliments about the sound of our show. One of our listeners left this review on iTunes:
"This podcast is so well done! It's like a professional radio show."We want nothing more than to do our best for God - but we believe there's room for growth. Your patronage will help us acquire better recording gear and technical elements.
More Content: We currently publish one 15-20 minute show each Tuesday and Friday. We also publish the occasional 5-minute TLP Snippet ("parenting wisdom in 5 minutes or less"). But we'd love to do more! God's Word has everything we need for life and godliness, but Paul asks how will people hear without a preacher? Truth.Love.Parent. is the tool we use to apply God's Word to a broader sphere of parents. Your patronage will help us develop more shows per week.
New Parenting Tools: In addition to the resources we already have at TruthLoveParent.com, we want to write more articles, publish more curriculum, record more videos, and create more tools. With your patronage, we'll be able to produce the highest quality books, curriculum, workshops, and video training we can.
Speaking Opportunities: I love that TLP connects with so many parents across the world. Our growing online family is so precious, but there's nothing more rewarding than connecting with you in real life. Workshops, messages, and family conferences are so valuable . . . there's really no substitute. Though churches are often able to give special offerings, your patronage will help me cover the costs that so often go uncovered: travel, lodging, and curriculum development. Team TLP would love to be able to blanket this glorious world with God's redemptive plan for our families!
And that's Truth.Love.Parent.
From the beginning we set out to do-nothing more than publish for an audience of One . . . and if other people could grow and learn from TLP, so much the better. But God is pleased to introduce us to a truly international audience (we have listeners in over 70 countries - many of which are closed to the Gospel), so, when you invest in TLP, you're investing in the family health of Christians across the globe!
I'm super excited about the future of TLP, and can't wait for you to be a part of it.
Thank you for loving God and trusting us to be faithful messengers of His Truth,
AMBrewster & TeamTLP
