Where to find this week’s guest:

Christie Thomas is in the thick of parenting our three boys. She works as the Director of Children’s Ministries at her home church in central Alberta, and has been there since 2006. In 2012, she began work on my first book as she wrote weekly Bible-based devotions for the families in her church. In 2015 the devotions were released as “Wise for Salvation: Meaningful Devotions for Families with Little Ones“ (affiliate link). This devotional has brought hundreds of families and children closer to God.
