How to Get Your Kids to Ask More Questions About Their Faith

The most popular post on my blog is one I wrote last year called, The Number One Sign Your Kids are Just Borrowing Your Faith (and Not Developing Their Own). That post has been read by more than 80,000 people and shared almost 14,000 times. Clearly it resonated deeply with people. So what was the sign that your kids are just “borrowing” your faith? They rarely, if ever, ask questions about it. Many parents wrote… … Continue reading

Joy, Faith, and Hope In The Midst Of Poverty

Too often my joy is attached to material possessions. Too often my faith is attached to the outcome of my circumstances. Too often my hope is attached to self-doubt… and I don’t live in poverty.

I very carefully angled this photo so you would NOT notice the swarm of bugs that… … Continue reading

You’ve GOT to read this incredible letter!

Kaci, a WAY-FM listener, called in recently to talk with Carlos & Joy about the struggle of finding hope. Another listener, Rae, overheard Kaci’s call-in on the subject, found the closest coffee shop, prayed, and reached out to us with encouragement to pass on to Kaci.
