This is a subject close to my heart.
Both my children are in their teens.
Both are bombarded daily with the worlds version of what is and isn't acceptable with regard to sexuality, religion, and faith.
I feel like I'm failing them. I am but one small voice among many. And what I'm saying is way less fun in their eyes.
We will go away for the Easter weekend on our annual family Easter camp. While I'm extremely grateful that my teenagers are still happy to go camping with their parents I'd love to find a way to get the Easter message across to them without them shutting down on me.
When you are the only believer in your family it's pretty hard to voice your opinion. Scary even. I don't want them to roll their eyes at me and stop listening. But I don't know how to reach them. I need help.
Lord, please help me find the right moment and the right words to help my children open their heart to you. Please help them navigate the teenage years without compromising themselves and guide them into the wonderful young people you made them to be.
