The Way Home: Kara Powell on parenting and discipling teenagers

Today, my good friend Kara Powell, Executive Director the of the Fuller Youth Institute, joins me on The Way Home podcast. Fuller Youth Institute is a great resource, and Kara has been such a great voice in helping us think through spiritual formation in our kids. Her brand new book, “3 Big Questions That Change Every Teenager,” looks at some of the questions that teens ask. Kara is a mom, and she talks about some of her experiences as a parent raising children. She also talks about the research around evangelical teens, what drives behavior, and how to raise kids who love the Lord and are ready to make a difference in the world.
