In the groundbreaking book Sticky Faith, Kara Powell and Chap Clark explore how to instill lasting faith in kids. Research shows that when children feel safe to express doubts, their faith tends to grow stronger.
Contrary to popular opinion, questioning God doesn’t mean you’re a weak Christian. Instead, doubts force you to examine the truthfulness of something (or someone) and consider how much you’re willing to invest in it. To truly own their faith, children must critically evaluate it first.
