Kara Powell talks to parents about modeling grace to their kids. Kara explains that if our faith is only about behaviors then it’s no wonder our youth are wandering. She also encourages parents to provide opportunities for their kids to interact with people from all age groups, and not to be alarmed when their kids begin to explore their doubts, as it usually leads to maturity.
