In this Kyria resource, we’ll explore this complex and painful issue. These articles look at the disturbing trend of young people leaving the church and explore how Christian communities can better handle the doubts and questions of others. You’ll hear personal insights from others whose spouses or children have chosen to leave Christianity. And you’ll read about how one woman made the choice to stick it out even when she felt tempted to leave her Christian community.
A collection of Bible-based articles and resources to use for yourself or with a group of other women.
