Schlep- from the German (schleppen) and Yiddish (shlepn): to drag or to haul; to make a tedious journey. Christianity is a tedious journey of love and faith. Walk along with me and we'll carry each other's burdens.

Customer Reviews


I enjoy listening simply because of the practicality. Joe is short and sweet, but unpacks a lot of meat in a practical illustration when it comes to our relationship with Jesus.

A review from a 7-year-old nephew

Listening to his uncle explain the etymology of the word “schlep,” Wyatt from PA asks, “Why is God called our Good Shepherd?”

“Why?” We all ask with anticipation.

“Because He is our Good Schelpherd!”
