Since episode 1 of CHRISTIAN PARENT/CRAZY WORLD, we’ve discussed how to solidify our kid’s faith to prevent them from being part of the massive youth exodus. Statistics show that a majority of Christian kids leave the faith when they leave the nest. But actually 90% of kids who leave the faith start that progression in the middle and high school years. About 40% start questioning in the middle and elementary school years.
This means that kids start the journey away from God while they are still in our homes.
The latest episode of CHRISTIAN PARENT/CRAZY WORLD tackles the question that no one wants to ask, but many need to answer:
What do I do if my child has walked away from the faith?
In this episode, I establish the proper perspective for us as parents when fighting for our kid’s faith, and I give you 9 CRITICAL STEPS to take if your child has walked away from the faith. This is a thorough strategy that will inspire and mobilize you.
Please listen to this vital information. And share it with a friend who may need some hope and a strategy to help their child find the way back home.
