How can parents teach their kids to express their feelings but build a foundation of faith that undergirds those feelings?

Our Creator God created our feelings. Help kids read their feelings through the lens of scripture.

What kind of hope would you want to offer parents today?

Christ is no less able to work today in our current culture than He was in times before.

The truth and the light of the gospel are no less able to pierce the darkness of today.
