Research suggests that at least 60% of kids who grow up in a Christian home walk away from Christianity by their early twenties, largely in response to the intellectual challenges to their faith. In light of the specific challenges kids will encounter in today’s world (especially in college, I can tell you from my boys’ experience) it has never been more important for our kids to know what they believe and why they believe it. Parents are uniquely positioned to be the best people for these most important conversations!
Today’s guest, Natasha Crain, has written a number of books offering help for parents who want to take this responsibility seriously. She is passionate about equipping Christian parents to raise their kids with an understanding of how to make a case for and defend their fatih in an increasingly secular world.
Natasha offers a roadmap for meaningful dialogue about Jesus in light of the most relevant topics to kids today. I am so grateful for Natasha’s books, and I think this interview will be an encouragement to you!
