Parenting with Purpose: Raising Spiritual Champions – Dr. George Barna, Part 3

“One of the things that shocked me, frankly, from the research with parents and children that we did last year is that most kids in America no longer trust their parents.” – Dr. George Barna

Join them as they dive deep into the topic of raising spiritual champions in a world of shifting worldviews.
