Todd Jones is a middle school pastor out in California. He's also the dad of four girls (two of whom are twins)! In this episode, we sat down and talked about what it's like to be a parent AND a middle school pastor.

Even for you who do not have kids, there's something in here for you to learn about what having kids may look like in the future and the necessity of communicating with your spouse!


Here are some things to think about:

    What events and programs will my own kids be a part of? How does the balance of being a parent and being a youth minister play out? When is it the right time to talk about this stuff with my spouse? What will my students think when they see me parent my kids?

Todd also has a great book out called "Jesus Colored Glasses" and you should totally check it out!
