by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson
Since September, I have been teaching a class on Tough Questions with some youth. I thought I would check out this book and see what it had to say on some of the hard things we talk to our kiddos about. I really love that they are clear from the start:
— We don’t have all the answers. (Who can know the mind of God?)
— We are not in control of their salvation by answering something wrong.
— We should not avoid tough questions out of fear.
I think it is so important that we, as parents and leaders, make sure we are the ones answering these questions. If our kids aren’t learning from us, we are allowing them to be taught by someone else that we may not even agree with.
This book has a lot of great answers and points. I love that they give you responses that are age appropriate. Of course, you, as the parent, should seek God’s wisdom on how to answer. Obviously, not every child is the same. Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson have done a great job digging into these questions and backing up their answers with Scripture.
Thank you, NetGalley, for giving me this great resource in return for a review. Here’s to many more!!
