Youth expert Kara Powell believes faith-filled teenagers and young adults can change our world— but only if leaders and parents listen well and provide solid answers to the kids’ toughest questions about life and faith. Kara joins guest-host Ed Stetzer to address the questions your kids are asking as they navigate the complexities of their world!
