Matt and Carol Tan
You raise a child the best you can – trying to give them opportunities you feel are best, making sacrifices. If you are a Christian, you try to guide them in the way of the Lord. Take them to church, help them get involved with children’s church, youth groups, etc. Then one day you realize, they are heading for college. Aside from financial worries and emotional adjustments, you are concerned about their spiritual growth. Will they fall away from the faith? Will they go off the proverbial “deep end”? What can you do – who do you turn to? My guests are here to help. More than help with neat sounding words, they themselves are in it. Their son is on his way to college. They have linked up with a program that will provide needed guidance and support.
