Brilliantly Brave Parenting is a podcast, designed to encourage parents of all stages and ages. We’re all stretching to meet the demands of life and trying to be responsible families of Faith. Hosted by Robert Beeson and Dr. Brad Mathias, this podcast inspires, encourages and supports parents with advice and insights from some of the leading voices in Christianity today.

Brilliantly Brave Parenting is an offshoot of the Tween Gospel Alliance and iShine. Tween Gospel Alliance is a partnership of ministries that are committed to helping tweens encounter the truth of Jesus Christ and the authority of scripture. iShine is the world’s largest pre-teen Christian media group.

Dr Brad Mathias

Co – Host Dr Brad Mathias: “We’re all imperfect and broken people, but I’ve found that being a parent just seems to make my weaknesses even more obvious! You can’t hide from the fact that parenting is the hardest and most important life assignment we’ll ever be given.  The goal of this podcast is to give you a boost of hope and encouragement when your feeling like a failure. As parents, none of us feel ‘brilliant or brave’… but we can encourage one another and share our testimonies of God’s faithfulness and grace when we need it the most. That’s what this Podcast is all about.

Pastor Brad Mathias is the president of Bema Media and is now engaged as a Pastor with the New England Diocese of the Anglican Church in America. He has served as the pastor of Four Winds Anglican in Columbia TN and iShine ministries. He and his wife were survivors of a near divorce, and now are actively engaged in public ministry to families in crisis. Brad and his wife Paige have been married for over 28 years and are the parents of three adult children and one awesome grandson. His blog Road Trip Parenting and book Roadtrip to Redemption are a big part of his parenting journey.

Robert Beeson

Co- Host Robert Beeson is the founder of iShine and Essential Records. He was the former SVP of Provident Music Group and has worked with almost every successful Christian record label or artist out there. While these accolades may seem impressive, he is quick to say that his role as the blended father of three daughters and three sons is his most esteemed title. A single father for almost a decade, Robert understands and can encourage single parents with his hard won insights and wisdom.

Robert is now the president and founder of Solo Parent Society and recently published his first book with Focus on the Family, ‘Going Solo”. An accomplished executive producer, foodie, and talented wordsmith, Robert is one of the funniest and smartest guys you will ever hear and his heart for the needs of blended families and solo parents is huge.

Ministry Growth:  We were so encouraged by the amount of people who streamed or downloaded Seasons 1- 4 of the podcast, that we decided to expand the show for season 5 in 2019. We are excited by this growing community of parents who are focused on raising kids with a biblical worldview!” To support this ministry – click here or share us with a friend… or both!
