In a culture that has lost touch with love, compassion, and meaning, how can parents be intentional about building a spiritual foundation for their children’ s development? In looking to their own upbringing for guidance, parents often feel even more at a loss— they don’ t want to make the same mistakes their parents did, so they either become too strict, or they take a completely hands-off approach. A pastor, a teacher, and a mother, Karen Marie Yust offers a refreshing array of resources and provisions to guide and sustain parents and children on thier mutual journey. Drawn from a three-year study of children’ s spirituality, as well as the best in theological tradition and literature, "Real Kids, Real Faith" provides insight and a variety of helpful tips for nurturing children’ s spiritual and religious formation. Yust challenges the prevailing notion that children are unable to grasp religious concepts and encourages parents to recognize children as capable of authentic faith.
