Four Truths About the Universe You Can Share with Your Kids to Demonstrate the Existence of God
by J Warner Wallace
If you’ve raised your children to believe Christianity is true, you probably want them to continue to believe it’s true, especially through their critical university years. There are good reasons to be concerned for young Christians once they leave our care. Statistically, most will walk away from the Church (and their belief in God) during their college years. What can we, as parents, do to address this growing problem? How can we help them know that God exists?

Don’t panic, you don’t have to be a theologian, philosopher or scientist to defend the truth. All you need to be is interested.
