Fear Factor in Parenting: Fear of the Culture with Collin Hansen

In this episode, Cameron and Anna talk with Collin Hansen, Vice President of Content and Editor in Chief for the Gospel Coalition (and, of course, fellow Alabama fan). As a father himself, Collin knows firsthand the concerns parents have about the pressures to conform that our children will face. Is the culture we face now truly more frightening than the one today’s moms and dads grew up in? How do we help our kids move with faith and courage into the world? Collin offers specific words of caution, but more than that, he offers hope that our children can grow and flourish even in the midst of a world that is increasingly hostile to Christians. Surely this is one of the most encouraging episodes of the Rooted Parent Podcast!
