Why? How? Who? What? When? Where?

Answering Your Kid(s)' Questions:

Kids can ask some really strange, deep, beautiful and complicated questions. As parents we often feel the need to answer all of them, but how do we do that when we are still discovering answers for ourselves? Faith can be scary but the arrival of fear is not the arrival of failure. Remember these three things as we navigate faith within our families.
  • You don't have to have it all figured out. Peter didn't and he was the rock. Its okay if you don't too.
  • God knows you'll be afraid. How many times in the Bible do you hear, "Do not be afraid!" He may not want us to but he understand that we will be at times.
  • Pray - but pray for the right things. Perhaps instead of praying for answers, we should pray for God's presence in the process.
Faith is a journey. If you traverse it with your child, you will show them how to become and disciple in a much stronger way than just answering their questions.
