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.
