Joining us today is author Candy Gibbs. She is passionate about equipping parents as they look for ways to pass the baton of faith on to their children. So whether you have teens in your household right now, are anxious about the teen years yet to come, or simply looking for ways to encourage the next generation, we think you will find hope in Candy’s words.
I’ve recently written a book called Rescue: Raising Teens in a Drowning Culture. Sounds ominous doesn’t it? Do you believe our children’s generation is drowning—being overcome by depravity, vulgarity, and perversion?
I have worked in a Pregnancy Center for 20 years, and believe me when I say the enemy has a plan and it IS to drown our teens in the turbulent, murky, unsteady waters of this world. I see it every day.
So, what are we to do as Christian parents? Tread water and be terrified? Look around and see everyone else going under and decide we will just have to go down too if we want our teen to fit in?
The current culture is frightening, BUT (and that’s a big but!) we just need to sit, be still, and remind ourselves that our God walks ABOVE the waves. Our God calls us to look up, look out, and see Him. Lift our heads and focus our eyes on Him, because He can calm the furious squall with a word. Let the Spirit of the Living God whisper to you…here is what HE says about your teen today:
May you always look for Him above the waves,
