In the Word, On the Go


About In the Word, On the Go

The Idea

As dad to three kids, I love to drive them to school as a regular part of our routine. We talk, listen to audiobooks, finish any last-minute homework, and pray together before I drop them off. In October 2018, I had just left the school when I thought, "There ought to be a short podcast for families and for individuals to focus on God's Word while driving." In the Word, On the Go.

Whether you're taking the subway or driving to work, school, church, ballgames, stores, or practices, this podcast offers an interview with pastors, teachers, or authors, in which they're asked about one of their favorite verses of Scripture. One verse for ten minutes—it's a devotional thought and conversation starter while you go about your day.
