This is a very special post because I interviewed not just one but three hosts of a new podcast on church history! And they are kids! Say hi to Emma, Trinity and Linus, the hosts of ” Kids Talk Church History” and get to know how they end up as hosts, learn some behind the scenes stuff on the making of an episode, church history and their interesting connection with the author, Simonetta Carr.
Hello guys! Kindly tell something about yourselves and who introduced you into church history.
TRINITY:Hello everyone! My name is Trinity, I am 15 and I’m one of the hosts of a new podcast called “Kids Talk Church History“! I got introduced to church history, by my old Sunday school teacher, Mrs. Simonetta Carr. Along with teaching us things from the Bible, she had us read some of her book manuscripts. They were really interesting, and I always wanted to learn more about the people who she wrote about.
Let this blog dump some Christmas spirit to you as that holiday approaches. Here are some quotes from the book I finished titled, The Weirdest Nativity authored by Andrew Sach and Jonathan Gemmel, published 10 Publishing. Get your copy by clicking this link.
“For those who change sides to follow Christ, the future is glorious. The devil is eventually destroyed. The world is made new. Tears are gone. We will live in a perfect world forever.”
It’s a stormy weekend here but I would like to share some quotes from a book I finished, I Have A Psychiatric Diagnosis, Edward T. Welch, published by New Growth Press. You can get your copy by clicking this link.
“If we are to become wise, we listen—to God and to others.“
The redemption story never gets old. It’s the essential story that is not just for the unbelievers but for us who are the elect. It’s the story that we see also in secular movies and books (good vs. evil). This story, God’s story is not just a feel good narrative. It has the power of transformation. David Murray’s new book, The StoryChanger shows us this power that changes lives.
Last year I shared a post on Driven By The Gospel on Scripture songs album that your kids might want to listen to. It’s a short list but these are albums we play from Spotify in our car. But what I didn’t share in that post is that there is an album that stands out and what my daughter (and of course our family) really loved. We play that every time we go out together especially going to church on Sunday. My daughter likes it a lot and sings along with it. In fact, she memorized some of it already and the message that these songs carries that are important in her spiritual growth. She might find this fun and entertaining but I pray that these songs will open for more biblical truths that she should know and stand for when she gets older. She easily picks up the song and catechizing her with the actual catechism for children speeds up the process of memorization.
Many folks (me included) are complaining of the entertainment content they’re consuming. There is too much woke-ness or SJW on social media, TV, movies and comics they usually indulge. While some parts of these movements do have some good things we should consider, the problem is that mostly they have the bad stuff that sometimes goes against our Christian conviction. So as a pop culture nerd myself, I have to stop reading and watching when these things pops up (aside from the profanity and violence it has). I know there is still good and clean content out here but I need to consider Christian content first. So the question is, what stuff will I consume and where would I go when all of these unnecessary and ungodly agendas permeate to those I’m currently enjoying?
I’m so excited to vote this 2022 election. My chosen candidate has a great reputation and qualification to fit the highest power in this country. I’ve seen the rallies and support. I’ve seen transformation brought by this political brand. This will change to course of history. Unfortunately, my mother in law was admitted in the hospital in Manila so I can’t vote. We spend the first week of May preparing her for her surgery. This is the first time I missed out the presidential election.
Nevertheless, I waited for the results. Then it came. The results are in. And it was disappointing. I was hurt. I can’t believe what just happened. My heart sank. I want to shut myself from social media. There are lots of things running in my mind. Its one of those days that I don’t want to go through. The following days will be rough for me. I know I can be all gloomy. I need to lift me up. I had to. This morning, I did three things:
This is the day I’m picking up my in law from the hospital. She had her brain surgery last Friday. Thank you for all you prayers and financial support for my Mama.
Anyways, enjoy these freebie to start your week.

Anyways, Here’s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, Surviving the Trenches by Joe Barnard published by Christian Focus Publications. You can get your copy in physical format by following this link. Purchasing your copy enables you to support the author, publishing house and ministry to further push the gospel of Christ.
“As Christians, we can never measure our potential by our experience.Past failure is never an accurate gauge for future progress. The reason for this is because the strength of the Christian life is found in Christ, not the self.”
As a Christian who is looking for resources that will help us as individuals and as a member of a church we need something that is completely saturated with the Gospel. The Gospel is the factor not just to save us from our sins but also drive us into action. The Gospel compel us to reach out to this lost world to give answers filled with hope. We are not just to give answers that spells apologetics but answers that will cater to other needs. Due to the changing times and culture, we find ourselves gravitating to resources that are effective and concise. Which might be a challenge to authors that carries a weighty message. Conveying it in a short volume might steal the essentials needed to connect the message to those who are in need.
