2. Invite Questions
Invite questions of faith in your family.
It’s important to create a safe space where family members can ask difficult questions.
If your children question the existence of God because of something their friend told them He’s not real, or if they’re anguished over why God allows tragedy to happen, don’t get angry.
Get talking. God makes sense, and all of reality—and thus, all questions—will point back to Him.
You may have to educate yourself or reach out to outside sources such as pastors or theology teachers, but strengthened, affirmed faith is well worth it.
Putting up walls and making questions off-limits only fosters division and resentment—especially for children, but sometimes for spouses, as well.
This creates an environment where it is easier to simply walk away from God because secular answers become more satisfying.
God gave us intelligent, reasoning minds—satisfy those minds, and your faith will be all the stronger.
