Front Porch with the Fitzes

Front Porch with the Fitzes, is a weekly chinwag featuring author Elyse Fitzpatrick and two of her three kids, Jessica Thompson and Joel Fitzpatrick. Sometimes some unexpected folks might even drop by and sit for a spell. Every week they’ll jibber about faith, family life, things that interest them in culture or news, and what they’re learning about the Lord and their Christianity. Imagine sitting on the front porch of your ol’ Kentucky home, listening to three slightly off-kilter believers talk about life, do a lot of laughing at each other and everyone else…and then, of course, there’s always the bluegrass music playing in the background.

Where do Nutella, waffles, Costco and an arrest for abuse intersect? On this week's Front Porch, of course. While you're there, you'll here Jessica (try to) make connections between Cyndi Lauper and... Scriptures (?) in an amusing segment called "Let's Get Praise!" Elyse confesses astonishment at God's description of David as, "a man after God's own heart." Wait! What? And just for fun Phil wanders out onto the porch too, so come on by for a visit. We've got some sweet tea for 'ya.

On the front porch today, Joel reviews and recommends a new book that teaches children how to protect their bodies, "God Made All of Me" by Justin and Lindsey Holcomb. Elyse reveals the family's connection to front porches, bluegrass, outhouses and Kentucky (and some famous people), while the three of them begin and end theif singing careers with a painful rendition of "Bill Groan's Goat." Jess then talks about our natural propensity to justify ourselves out of Luke 10:26 confessing her own self-justification strategies with stick figure family drivers. Come on over and sit a spell.
