Virtual relationships, excessive screen time, information overload, extended adolescence: these are just a few of the problems plaguing today’s teenagers. How do we help them navigate the cultural waters they’re swimming in?

Today on the BreakPoint Podcast, Warren Cole Smith interviews Mark Gregston, founder and executive director of Heartlight Ministries, a residential counseling facility for adolescents in crisis based in the piney-woods region of east Texas.

Gregston shares his thoughts on leading teens from information (which they have plenty of) to wisdom; on helping parents go from teaching to training, from providing answers to helping their teens ask the right questions.

And as we approach our fiscal year end, we would so appreciate you considering a donation to BreakPoint and the Colson Center to help us end this year strong. Thanks for your support!
