One of the greatest challenges of parenting is navigating the crucial conversations that we must have with our kids. On today’s episode, Thom and Sam talk to Jimmy and Kristin Scroggins about having hard conversations with our kids that point them to Christ. 

1. Why did you write this book? What inspired you to write it?

2. Talk about the tough conversations you’ve had with your own children. How did you handle those?

3. What are the “3 Circles?” What led you to start using the 3 Circles Gospel tool with parenting?

4. What role does the church play in this conversation of parenting? How can “Full Circle Parenting” help pastors and church leaders better equip parents?


Jimmy and Kristin Scroggins have been married for more than twenty-five years and have eight children and 2 grandchildren. Jimmy pastors Family Church in West Palm Beach, Florida.
