We have been listening to Joe for many years. We actually attended worship with his family and have been blessed to hear Joe preach. As a young child my son aspired to be like Joe. You will never have a dull moment listening to JOE. We love the Hey Joe Show. It has been very helpful as we raise our children. We have his books and have used his Game Plan book to help is parent better.
Great show for Christian families!
I love the podcasts from the Hey Joe show. They are relevant for families with kids of all ages. I love how Joe uses current events to delve into important topics. I'm so glad this podcast is a part of the Light Network, or I never would have found it. So worth your time--you won't be sorry you tuned in!!
Great show for teens
Awesome show for teens & their parents living in the world today!
