Are You Listening to Your Teen’s Heart?

If there is one thing the majority of teens have in common, it’s that they are desperate to be loved for WHO they are, not for what they do. So, Mom and Dad, does your teen feel loved unconditionally? Or do they feel like you have unmeetable expectations? It might be time to ask them! In this special devotional, Mark Gregston shares why you need to listen to what’s on your teen’s heart and shares ways you can initiate discussions about improving your relationship with them.   

When your teen is struggling, the most powerful thing you can do is pray for them! That’s why we created the ‘Prayers For My Teen,’ devotional for moms. Order yours at
