Research Surprises

Kara Powell

Just about every time we at FYI talk with someone new about Sticky Faith, they ask us, "So what's the bottom line?  What are the most interesting things you've learned?"

Well, we wrote a few books to fully answer those questions.

But we wanted to give you a brief summary of some of what we found most surprising from our 6 years of research.  Feel free to share this blog with other youth leaders or parents.  By the way, we encourage you to share about Sticky Faith not just with parents and leaders of teenagers, but also with parents and leaders of children and emerging adults.  One of the promising conclusions we've made is that it's never too early nor too late to start building long-term faith in kids.
