Showing the value of this approach for students of all ages, he explains the connection between the stories we tell and our worldview, breathing life into history and making it relevant for walking wisely. By entering into the Great Conversation, we grapple with the great questions and learn the lessons of the past in order to apply them as we seek to live the lives God has called us to live.

In our few short years with our children, we must focus on the first things first and character is always the first thing!
