About Us

If your actual family life isn't quite as awesome as what everyone else is putting on social media, then you've come to the right place. With a fun and fast-moving format, Barrett and Jenifer Johnson of I.N.F.O. for Families take an authentic (and faith-based) look at family life for people who are honest enough to admit that they have no idea what they are doing....but are willing to look to the One who does.

It's like a master class on how to keep your relationships and rhythms intact while living and working in close proximity. They discuss schedules, flexibility, expectations, priorities, communication, and so much more.

013 - How to Know the 10 Ways to Find the 7 Keys to the 5 Secrets to Being a Successful Parent, Husb

Why are there so many checklists? On this episode, Barrett and Jenifer tackle part two of what they feel is perhaps is the most important component of building a healthy family life. (If you haven’t listened to part one yet, do that first.) It may or may not have anything to do with a list. Along the way, they discuss some funny ways people characterize marriage on Twitter, the crazy couple who got married at 100 and 102, and how to recover when you treat your spouse terribly….in her dreams.

012 - How to Know the 10 Ways to Find the 7 Keys to the 5 Secrets to Being a Successful Parent, Husb

On this episode, Barrett and Jenifer take a tongue-in-cheek look at our fascination with lists…and all the people who make promises that if you just do “these things,” your family will be awesome. More importantly, they explore a critical (but often neglected) dimension of the Christian life that makes all the checklists and top 10 lists unnecessary. Along the way, they discuss a recent study on teen sexting, loving your kids (even if you don’t always like them), and why men who take their wives to action movies rarely get any action when the movie is over.

On this episode, Barrett and Jenifer talk about why it’s so important to carefully guard your marriage from outside forces. If you value your marriage, it’s worth protecting!

On this episode, Barrett and Jenifer discuss how all the issues our pre-teen and teenage girls face are amplified by smartphone technology.

Along the way, they talk about the challenges of modern parenting, lying to their kids about the ice cream truck, and a dad’s role in shepherding his daughter’s heart.
