Fear over the coronavirus continues to grip people. I have a family member who calls my wife every few days expressing her uncertainty about where our country goes from here and how we protect ourselves. Her concerns are not unreasonable, but it’s clear that her questions are driven by fear and anxiety.
Fear is contagious, and children are especially susceptible. So are Christian moms and dads who wish to instill their children with faith.
What can you do? We’ve invited John Stonestreet to be our guest on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Helping Your Child Develop a Resilient Faith.”
John is the president of the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview and the author of the book A Practical Guide to Culture: Helping the Next Generation Navigate Today’s World. He has some great thoughts to share about how you can help your child develop a resilient, confident faith.
He’ll explain how to help your children develop a Christian worldview through which they approach issues like the coronavirus pandemic, the role of politics, and the value of life and of marriage. Learn how to have conversations with your children about those things, so their worldview isn’t formed entirely by the culture.
The truest thing about realty right here and now is that Jesus Christ is still risen from the dead. The fact that He lives is our anchor in uncertain times. That’s true whether we’re dealing with the coronavirus or our brothers and sisters in another country are enduring persecution.
We’d like to send you a copy of John Stonestreet’s book A Practical Guide to Culture: Helping the Next Generation Navigate Today’s World for a gift of any amount. If you can’t afford it, we’ll still make it available to you and trust that others will take care of us financially for doing so. Visit our website for more information.
You may also be interested in a free online booklet we’ve written called, “Coming Home: An Invitation to Join God’s Family,” which explains what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
If you’re feeling anxious, we want to remind you that our counselors are available. We’d love to schedule a time for you to talk to them. We’re a phone call away at 1-800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
