Kira and Deana chat with Dr. Kara Powell of the Fuller Youth Institute who shares her unique philosophy about how we can grow with our children, instead of growing apart. She discusses the three phases of a child’s growth into adulthood and the three ways parents can walk alongside them as they grow. She also shares the one line every parent needs to have in their back pocket and an image parents can carry with them to help them be “the wall” that their kids need them to be.
