If you look at the list of top ten teen sins, you see that the basic cause is peer pressure. But why are kids so susceptible to peer pressure? It seems that they want to be accepted by their social group so bad that they’ll do anything…including violate their own moral, ethical, and faith boundaries. That my friends is called low self-worth. But where on earth does that come from? Listen in this week as the boys discuss the origins of low self-esteem in our kids.
This week the guys talk to an old friend. And when I say “old”, I’m talking mid 1990’s old.

We are so passionate about our nation’s, church’s, and family’s lack of contentment, that we filled two shows. This week is part one. We were going to leave it just one show, but then there was all this other info that we felt had to be added. I mean, we couldn’t just leave it like that unfinished, could we? It had to be better, in fact this show on contentment could never be good enough, right? We have to keep working to get it just right. I’m not sure we can get it done in just two shows…maybe we need three shows to get the topic on contentment JUST right…
While Josh is absent…something to do with a new baby that just arrived or some other lame excuse…Jimmy is speaking with Melanie Shankle, New York Times Bestselling author of The Church of Small Things. She's hilarious and your going to love her interview!
