In a talk that explores the forces that shape our identities as parents and as students, Adam describes a common ground in the Gospel where we can stand with our children in the midst of the imperfections inherent in all relationships. Using a classic children’s story as a jumping off point, Adam encourages parents not to give up when the specters of failure and hardship threaten their resolve to teach their children at home.
