The Main Thing:

Two words that can inflict some uncertainty — parenting teens. Even more so, is parenting teens from hard places. But here’s the thing, they need us and we have so much to learn from them. For Episode 078 Abby Keiser from COBYS Family Services is joining us for Part 1 of a mini-series on parenting your teen. We’re starting with the basics and then getting even more specific as we identify what it takes in the day-to-day and how it impacts the big picture.

Whether you have a blip on the radar with a foster placement or a lifetime through adoption, these years are tough — but we have a profound opportunity to plant a seed, lean into our faith, and help guide the way for these kiddos that we love so much.
