We’ve all been on the other end of a question that we have absolutely no idea how we’re supposed to answer, let alone on a kid-appropriate level.

Carving out time to pray with our children blazes a trail for them to cope with life the way God created us to – in conversation with Him.
Life is like that, at times. Unfair and uncomfortable. We count on certain things to go a certain way.
