Hey guys! Chris and Melissa here, Recently with the crisis in Afghanistan we, like many of you, have been wondering "what can we do?" And "how do we talk to our kids about this?"
If you’ve been listening to us for a while you’ve heard us say that strong families make strong individuals, and strong individuals have the opportunity to create a huge impact in the world around them. With that thought in mind, we believe that one of the most powerful things you can do for the world is to build and strengthen your family.
In today’s episode we talk about what we have been sharing with our kids, and how we are choosing to make an impact and a difference in this situation. You’ll hear about a recent moment where Chris had the opportunity to help our kids understand that the world is bigger than the one they can see with their own eyes, and how we approached them with the recent crisis to not instill fear but to inspire them. Join us as we discuss what you can do for Afghanistan now, and how you can address these issues with your family. To donate or find the resources we talked about, you can visit the links below!
This episode was recorded prior to the ISIS bombings at the Kabul aport and other recent developments. Continued thoughts and prayers to all families affected both here and abroad.
