Digging Deeper, Guiding Kids to Stand Stand Strong in Their Faith


“We’ve been so exposed the last few years to cancel culture. It’s, “If I don’t agree with you, I’m going to get louder and more dominant, and I’m going to tear you apart.” And how do we model to our kids that we are called to love through that process?” – Dr. Michelle Watson Canfield.

Three women of Christ on a mission, Dr. Michelle Watson Canfield, Rhonda Stoppe, and Lee Ann Mancini, have joined together to share empowering Godly advice, information, and encouragement for everyone who is raising the next generation of warriors for Christ. Dr. Michelle Watson Canfield is a national speaker, author, podcaster, and a licensed professional counselor of 27 years. Rhonda Stoppe is a best-selling author, speaker, and podcaster who has helped countless women build “no regrets lives”!

During this episode, all three ladies tackle the question of how parents can help kids stand up and stand strong in their convictions in a world filled with peer pressure and differing ideologies. They discuss practical strategies for navigating disagreements within the family, facing pushback in public schools, and dealing with friends and family members who may challenge their faith.

Key Takeaways:

  • Encouraging kids to live out their convictions in the face of disagreement from family members.
  • Acknowledging the challenges of having family members who reject faith and teaching kids not to be judgmental but to instead live out their faith in front of them.
  • Emphasizing the importance of modeling peaceful and accepting behavior within the family.
  • Praying over kids and encouraging them to walk in a manner worthy of their calling while at school.
  • Teaching critical thinking and the ability to engage in intelligent conversation about faith.
  • Encouraging kids not to worry about negative opinions from peers, as it’s only for a short period of time.
  • Encouraging an unoffendable attitude and gracious response to differing beliefs.
  • Modeling curiosity and showing genuine interest in understanding others’ viewpoints.

“What we always taught our kids is don’t be angry with a blind person for being blind. If they don’t have the mind of Christ, then they don’t see life with a biblical worldview. So rather than being self-righteous, pharisee, and judgmental, live your faith in front of them.” – Rhonda Stoppe.
