Don’t trade the truth of convenience. But teaching our kids to be smart and stubborn when it comes to truth will not only preserve the gospel but also move it forward and introduce others to real freedom and real hope.
The unrest, hate, and division we see in our world is cry for help. It's a cry for hope. But there is no legislation, no erasure of history, or admittance of privilege that will satisfy our culture's longing for goodness, truth, and beauty. Only the Gospel can do that.
A strong intellectual faith, coupled with parents’ and students’ desire for emotional moments, became the beginning of a formula that I soon required anywhere I taught. I had four specific goals I was after to make my students more mature Christians who think “Christianly”:
It is my aim to talk about the Word every chance we get, encourage my kids to read—even if they don't fully understand—ask questions and pursue more than just knowledge of the Word but of the Word Himself.
We have to help our students discover their creative calling and fully realize their potential to take who they are, what they love, and what they can create—and how they can uniquely point others to Christ.
