Your kids should know you’re an open door for faith questions, but some questions may never occur to them to ask. If we want our kids to develop a robust faith, we can’t just react to their comments and questions. We also need to proactively place the big questions in front of them — the ones we know that they will encounter from the skeptics, such as why God allows so much evil, or why Christians believe miracles like the Resurrection are possible. This doesn’t mean that your home needs to become a lecture hall. Instead, think of these conversations as a journey to discover faith truths together…You don’t need to have all the answers at first, but you do need to provide the forum. —Natasha Crain (from, Teach Kids How to Defend Their Faith)
