The teenage years are the first time in a kid’s life when they start asking questions like, “Why do I believe what I believe?” So this month, we want to help you have better conversations with your kid about faith . . . and doubt.

For the next four weeks, you’ll encourage teenagers to wrestle with their doubts by voicing their questions, understanding their perspective is limited, remembering how Jesus has transformed their lives, and considering why they followed Jesus in the first place.
