As parents, we have a central role to play in passing on faith and freedom to the next generation. The spiritual soil of our kid’s lives is nurtured first and foremost by us through modeling the biblical life, through education and prayer, and through the stories we pass on to our kids about the faith.


Catherine wraps up a trilogy of conversations with world-renowned freedom expert, Os Guinness, author of The Magna Carta of Humanity: Sinai’s Revolutionary Faith and the Future of Freedom. In this episode, they discuss:


  • The origin and DNA of ordered freedom.
  • The magnitude of the Genesis declaration that we are made in God’s image.
  • The decline of the west leading to a need for renewal.
  • The power of the creative minority.
  • How parents have the greatest part to play in passing on freedom, equality, human dignity, and faith.


What makes the greatest difference in human history?


It is the stories parents tell our children. It is the truth we instill in them. It is the faith they see lived day in and day out from us as ordinary parents planting the seeds of an extraordinary God in the hearts of our kids. This simple but profound work is what makes the difference in the lives of our children, our communities, our country, and our world.
