While it may sound alarmist, the truth is that our kids are in digital danger. Whether it's online predators, pornography, the new world of virtual reality and the upcoming metaverse, the comparison trap of social media, or the addiction of screen time, it's our job as parents to see the problem and look for healthy solutions.
In this episode, we talk to Anne Marie McDonald, the Chief Parent Officer at Gabb Wireless. Gabb Wireless is the company behind the safest phones in the world. We draw on Anne Marie's expertise to touch on all the issues listed above. She provides excellent information while encouraging calm, rational solutions, to help our kids use tech as a tool rather than trouble.

Today we're talking with our good friend, Shanda Fulbright of the Her Faith Inspires Podcast.
We live in a noisy world, and sometimes it's hard to have a podcast and add our conversation to a world that already feels saturated. We talked to Shanda about what it looks like to pursue wisdom, pursue truth and speak with discernment.
We then discuss parenting: why does it seem like the conversation among parents is always about school, sports and achievements? Why is the conversation rarely about Jesus, faith, the gospel... the things that Christians profess to care about the most?
We're called to walk differently- we hope the Holy Spirit uses this episode to encourage your family to put first things first, prioritize a biblical worldview, and live and love with an eternal perspective.

Did you hear about the man arrested for plotting to kill Supreme Court Justice Kavinaugh? Wait until you hear WHY he sought to kill him.
The trans movement is targeting our children, but most importantly adults who don’t agree are scared to speak out. While we do need to be focused on protecting our kids, our biggest focus needs to be raising them in such a way that they’ll be able to withstand the pressure to bend as adults... that’s when it gets really tough.
When it comes to the trans movement what is being promoted as the general consensus is really minority mob rule. The healthcare community that promotes it, can’t even fully buy in. Guess why: SCIENCE. I arm you with some interesting tidbits from bedside care.
Finally I discuss the PRIDE issue in healthcare administration’s inability to admit their mistakes, which is further harming their staffing and share their solution... you may or may not be surprised at the literal lengths they are going to get staff.

+ Cecily's sister met a lady who flew from the US to Canada who says they were told to put on masks as soon as they entered Canadian air space... WHAT???
+ We discuss morality - whether it's subjective or objective and where it even comes from.
+ The bulk of the episode is built upon this concept of liberty never being free and rarely cheap... yet so many Canadians and Americans expect life to be a walk in the park. But perhaps the freedoms we enjoy here demand a little something of us in return.
+ We wrap it up by discussing how history is built upon the One who suffered - Jesus Christ. We talk about biblical examples of suffering and also dip into Revelation to understand the root of suffering and our place in it.

The tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, has broken hearts and further shaken a population in turmoil.
This is a delicate topic and we did our best to examine as many sides of it as we could. We discuss the actual event, the timeline, and the emergency response.
We also discuss some of the proposed solutions, such as gun control, social emotional learning and secure classrooms.
As we always do on The Boom Clap Podcast, we try to evaluate the root cause... moral relativism and societal rot being near the top of the list. Ultimately, legislation is important, but transformed hearts with an eternal perspective will be the most revolutionary solution of all.

This may be one of the most (if not THE most) important episodes we've ever done. We chat with Elizabeth Lui who has been living in China for 17 years, the bulk of which has been in Shanghai.
She walks us through the reality of what is happening right now in Shanghai and her words tell of a haunting humanitarian crisis while ringing a shrill warning bell.
This is not an episode to be missed... we cannot state that clearly enough. She takes us through every bit of the restrictions and the impact it has had on their lives. From splitting 1 egg between 2 people for food conservation to disguising herself in a hazmat suit to go outside. Again... this story NEEDS to be heard.
Listen to this important episode, share it to be part of the moving this message forward, and join us in thanking Elizabeth for her courage in speaking out!
