What tips do you have for raising children to be OK with ordinary—when the world and church only celebrate extremes?
What parent doesn’t believe their child is special, unique, extra-ordinary? Yet in his new book Ordinary, Horton cautions Christians against making the extraordinary an idol. In our video he gets specific to us parents.
