Free Play 47 | We Tried Our Best


About This Episode

Games are a big part of our lives for those of us that really really love them. When you love something, people know about it. We at the FreePlay Podcast are Christians who love games. And we’ve had experiences, both good and bad, with how they’ve affected our faith and relationships with other Christians.



Episode Hosts

He and his wife Erin have something like a billion kids, and they all love to be in the woods all the time. If you follow him on Instagram, everything he posts is a day behind. You’ve been warned.
