Thanks for your interest in being a Godly Parent for your child!  My name is Andrew, and I can’t wait to partner with you to become the Godly Parent that you desire to be. 

The Linders

God has blessed my wife and me with four children, and we strive to help other parents just like you with biblical parenting principles and practices to help you raise your kids to be everything God created them to be.  Feel free to find out more about us below, or simply enjoy navigating around the blog.  


I’ve invested my life into kids ministry full time since 2001, and am passionate about ministering to kids and their families, as well as equipping other parents and ministry leaders to do the same. Some of the things I enjoy are teaching children the Bible, running, wrestling with my kids, and anything ‘bacon’.


Parenting is tough!  But God has given us the answers.  This blog will help give you practical guidelines and ideas for how to navigate the parenting years.  My wife and I have learned a lot over the years, and our desire is to use our experience and biblical parenting insight to come alongside you on your parenting journey.  


If you’re a parent with kids still in the home or a ministry leader or volunteer who invests in children – this blog is for you. Even if you’re a grandparent or just simply someone who deeply cares about reaching the next generation – you’ll find this blog helpful.

If you haven’t already, I’d invite you to SIGN UP up by submitting your name and email address to receive new content as it’s posted.  You can expect one new article per week, and I’ll even give you a FREE GIFT that I know your family will enjoy!


I grew up as a ‘pastor’s kid’ almost all my life, which was a great privilege.  I gave my life to Christ as a 12 year old boy on Feb. 7, 1993. It was at a young age that the Lord impressed upon my heart the desire to serve in full-time ministry.  But little did I know that he had called me to work full-time with children. In June of 2001, I married my best friend, Charity, and we now have four amazing children – Spencer, Faith, Seth, and Shane.

In July of 2001, the Lord called us to serve at Fellowship Baptist Church in Liberal, KS, where we served on the church staff for 14 years.  In 2008, we founded KidzBlast Ministries, and KidzBlast.com, which provides local churches with effective and proven children’s ministry resources.  KidzBlast Ministries is also the avenue through which we help churches conduct their summer VBS programs and children’s ministry worker training events.

In 2015, the Lord called us to be a part of the staff at Grace Baptist Church in Pekin, IL, where we currently serve.
