Raising Spiritual Kids


Youth leaders from Alaska’s Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities join us to discuss the value of raising children to have faith in a higher power. We’ll explore why some kids will choose to reject their parents’ religion, while others will remain devout in the faith of their childhood. Afshan Mohammad, Principal of Al-Noor Academy Sunday Islamic School, Rabbi Michael Oblath from Congregation Beth Shalom, and Mark Zweifel, District Youth Director of the AK Ministry Network are guests.

PLUS, a story of courage, tragedy and inspiration: an Alaskan teen who saw her father drown in a boating accident while saving herself and others now endeavors to use her experience to encourage her peers through hard times; and we hear from the parents, and the teens – what do they each think about their family’s religion – or lack of?
