Research shows that the decision to leave the church happens most often between the ages of 10 and 17.
These firm decisions are being made younger and younger. It’s not college that appears to begin the process but the diminishing faith expressed and lived at home. Parents need to be strong in their faith. As the saying goes, “an apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” It takes effort and sacrifice. So be ready for it to be tough…it’s worth it.
