Depth Podcast Episode 50: Love-Powered Parenting — Tom & Chaundel Holladay

Listen now:

This week, I talk with Tom and Chaundel Holladay about their book,*Love-Powered Parenting. Tom is one of the teaching pastors at Saddleback Church and Chaundel speaks at Treasured, a bible study for young moms. I first read this parenting book at Treasured when my kids were much younger. I recently have read it again now that my kids are older, and I believe the truths they share can apply to all ages from toddlers to teenagers. 

I love that this book centers around looking at parenting through the lens of love. Today we focus on my two favorite parts of the book: the power of your priorities and the power of your words. I love the practical tools that Tom and Chaundel share as well as their wisdom from raising 3 children and now 6 grandchildren.  Having them both on the podcast was such a joy!
