DOUBT IT: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON DOUBT 

SERIES OVERVIEW:

We were all designed to ask questions. As toddlers, we constantly asked, “Why?” But as we get older, asking too many questions is often discouraged — especially when those questions are about our faith. But in this4-week series, we’ll talk about how having questions (and even doubts) about God might not be as scary or as shameful as we thought, because you’re not alone in your questions, God doesn’t shame us for our questions, our questions don’t always get answered, and Godly people can help us with our questions

It can be pretty terrifying when your kid expresses doubts or asks hard questions you’re not sure how to respond to. You might be tempted to give a quick answer or shut down the conversation, but here’s a tip: instead of trying to give great answers, try asking great questions. Your job as a parent is less about telling your kid the right answers and more about journeying with them as they learn to ask great questions and discover new truths. 

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Parent Tip Video #8 from your Parents section.
