Why was slugs & Bugs Created?


The inspiration for Slugs & Bugs came from having my own children, and feeling like a hypocrite whenever I talked about the gospel, holiness, and being “like Jesus” with them. 

 And then… I realized that I was going about it all wrong. Instead of trying to teach them how Jesus wanted them to act, I began teaching them what a life walking with Jesus is like for me - with daily, hourly(minute-ly?!?) cycle of repentance and restoration - and that changed everything. 

 Slugs & Bugs was born out of a desire to help other parents connect with their kids in the same way - acknowledging that we are all on the same journey of discipleship. And with Jesus, that journey is filled with joy and light and laughter amidst the struggle.
