My husband and I have three school-aged boys. We have made a deliberate decision to enroll all three of them in public school, a topic that we may get into more in a different podcast. Though I’m able to be in the classroom regularly again this semester, there’s still nothing I can do to shelter them from witnessing the reality of the fall–even in elementary.
Over the summer, I read Mama Bear Apologetics: Empowering Your Kids to Challenge Cultural Lies, by Hillary Morgan Ferrer and Nancy Pearcey. The book discusses our role as parents in the instruction of biblical truth in a depraved culture. I knew I needed to bring Hillary onto the podcast to share her wisdom with my listeners. Our conversation covered such a wide scope that I’ve decided to break it into two episodes. In this week’s episode, we discuss properly equipping our children to defend their faith.
In next week’s episode, we’ll get into topics from Hillary’s second book, co-authored by Amy Davison and released in October 2021–Mama Bear Apologetics Guide to Sexuality: Empowering Your Kids to Understand and Live Out God’s Design. Unfortunately, the second book is all too relevant in today’s culture also. We get into some of the tough topics in that book next week.
You can pick up the books on Amazon.
