Rebel Parenting events

and upcoming guests


REBEL Parenting meets the needs of parents and marriages who are asking the hard questions. This generation calls out for authenticity and vulnerability. We want honest and real advice. No more unattainable standards but grace to live in the hard places as a parent and as a spouse.

Parents and marriages today face many struggles that we want to walk alongside and sit with these issues that encounter us all like pornography, addictions, sex outside the marriage, homosexuality, and financial hardships. We are not immune to hardships as believers. So, let’s dig in and get messy like Jesus would do.

We will have programs on the show that will target specific hard topics like pornography, financial hardships, homosexuality, addictions, the overwhelming pull to be in the rat race of life, how to talk with your teen who is having sex, etc.

John Alan Turner

I am a father, a son, a brother, and a friend. I work as a writer, a theologian, a consultant, and a teacher. I have six books and three daughters, and we all live in a great house just outside of Atlanta, GA. I like jazz, baseball, and reading — though not necessarily in that order. I believe Jesus was the most brilliant man to ever walk on the earth, and I also believe he was God incarnate who lived a sinless life, died a sacrificial death, and rose victorious from the dead. I believe the message of the Bible is the most life-changing message of all time, and I believe God has called us to share that message with others in a way that makes sense to them.
