What do you do when God asks you to take a dare and do something different in your parenting than everyone else around you? How do you deal with feelings of awkwardness or isolation that come from choosing something different from the norm? Kate and Mike Battistelli, parents of GRAMMY award-winning Contemporary Christian recording artist Francesca Battistelli, were incredibly intentional about the way they raised their daughter, and the way they lived their lives. Kate’s new book, The God Dare, demonstrates the power of saying “Yes!” to God, no matter the cost, and in this episode, we explore what that choice cost them, and why they would make the sacrifice all over again.
If you’ve experienced the difficulties of being an intentional Christian parent, this episode is for you!
