Parenting teens is not easy! Join Dawn and Steve Mornings for some parenting tips as they explore an article by Leia Joseph titled "What Teens Need from Parents: A Counselor's Perspective."
Our nation is experiencing a worldview shift among Millennials that reflects a fundamental break between younger Americans and older Americans. Dawn and Steve talk with Dr. George Barna about this generational worldview shift, as Millennials seek a nation without God, Bible and churches. Dr. Barna is the Director of Research and cofounder of the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University. He is also an ACU professor, focusing on worldview assessment and development, and cultural transformation. He was the founder and leader of the Barna Group, a research company that has set the standard for understanding trends in American culture. In addition, Barna serves as Senior Research Fellow at the Center for Biblical Worldview at the Family Research Council. He has taught at the undergraduate and graduate level, and has pastored two churches. Barna has written more than 50 books, including numerous award-winners and New York Times bestsellers.
