In this episode I talk with Micah Jelinek. Micah is a Pastor at Oak Pointe Church Milford. He and I discuss the idea of faith, why faith is important, even if you aren't religious, how to model critical thinking within your children when it comes to faith and religion, how your can grow your faith in parenting and family relationships, and why books and art are the best place to start when exploring your faith.. Micah discusses some examples from his own life and helps to solidify how faith can help you in living an intentional life. Be sure to check out the list of literature below for further reading!
