In this episode of we talk about humility and how to help our children embrace it. We talk about some very special books that can help us with this important lesson. In a world celebrating pride for everything, the concept is often misunderstood if it is taught at all. However, as Christ followers, we are called to humble ourselves. And we are called to teach our children the same.
