When Your Kids Question Their Faith

When Christian apologist Josh McDowell was asked how he felt when his son began questioning his faith, McDowell replied, "I was actually excited!...If our kids never struggle with their faith, they will have borrowed convictions. So I had been waiting for each of my kids to come to this point." 

I was quite struck by this when I read it in Thriving Family this month. I'm certain that before reading this article, I wouldn't have been anything near excited to see my kids question God and the Bible. How about you? 

But Josh and his son Sean do a great job explaining why this is actually something we want our kids to do - and how to prepare both yourself and your kids for that day. Every Christian parent needs to read this article; check it out here.
