Ep. 175: Growing up to Love God and His Word, with Josiah Swanson
My son shares from his experience and answers questions about growing up with faith.
I hear from a lot of parents who want to raise their kids to know and love God’s Word but are afraid of pushing too hard, or worried their kids might rebel against church and faith. My oldest son, Josiah (23) joins us today to share his faith journey, from his earliest years, through some years of doubt and questioning, and on to where he is today: A young man who loves God and cherishes the Word of God. While it may not offer a formula to follow, I think his experience will offer a lot of encouragement for your parenting!
Josiah answers questions sent in by listeners, including how he suggests responding to a teenager who doesn’t want to go to church, as well as a couple questions about choosing colleges. Follow Josiah on his European travels on his Instagram feed!
