I am thrilled that Natasha Crain invited me to write a post on her great Christian parenting blog, “Christian Mom Thoughts.“
Natasha writes on apologetics for parents, equipping them to help their kids grow in a strong and well-informed faith, and she now has a book under contract with Harvest House. Check out her work — but read my post first!

There are training wheels for prayer too. (click here to read more…)
I hope you’ll join the conversation there by sharing your own stories about teaching kids to pray!
