My son is able to pinpoint the worldview slant that is being pushed in media - things that completely slip my attention. At 15, he is better able to defend his faith now than I am. What a deep confidence that gives me as we look to sending him off into a culture that WILL confront him on that. He owns his faith, can share it confidently and without backing down, knows how to refute arguments intelligently and lovingly, and has been girded up by his multi-cultural experiences. How thankful I am!! ~ TPCA parent
