How many times during the day do you think of God? When your child is struggling, questioning, or observing something in their day, do you seize the opportunity to teach your child about God? Alex Early began the conversations on theology with his children during the pandemic, and found that these times were both enriching, instructional, and insightful for everyone in the family. Now, his instruction for his children is available to you to use in teaching your children about God. Alex shares his journey into theology with his kids offering ideas on how to be thinking and teaching about God as a lifestyle on Tuesday's show.
