How to Answer Your Kid's Toughest Questions About God: With Natasha Crain—Alisa Childers Podcast #11
The world our kids are growing up in is quite a bit different than the one we grew up in. Skepticism is on the rise, and our culture is becoming increasingly more hostile toward traditional Christian beliefs. With so much information at their fingertips, Christian kids are encountering objections to the Christian worldview at very young ages. How do we talk to our kids about the challenges they are facing at school and on the internet? How can we resist the urge to offer them superficial answers like "Just have faith," and engage them intellectually? National author, blogger, and speaker Natasha Crain gives some incredible advice for Christian parents on today's podcast.

Thanks for telling Natasha's story. What she has gone through, with people challenging her faith in Christ (on her blog), should encourage all believers that even with a busy family life, learning apologetics is a doable, and necessary, goal. Natasha's books are a great resource for achieving such a goal.
Quick note: Being a "seeker" isn't necessarily a good thing. Are you seeking to determine whether atheism is true? Probably not. Does that make you closed-minded, or a troll? Of course not. Well, the reverse holds too. Just because someone isn't actively seeking whether Christianity is true doesn't mean they're closed-minded or trolling.

I'm late to learn about you (Alisa) and have begun working my way "up" from the first episode to catch up! This episode encourages me (a 75yo grandmother, soon to be great-grandmother) to share Natasha's books with my "kids" in the throes of parenting small/young children. While Natasha told the story of her son on the treadmill I longed for her to also emphasize the need for obedience in the same way God expects obedience from his children. We often suffer the consequences when we disobey him. Trust me—I know this from experience and I learned from it too!
