TFA Parents,

Since most of us can’t fly to Nashville this weekend for the 2017 ERLC National Conference, “Christ-Centered Parenting in a Complex World,” let me share some incredible news! You can live stream the conference for free on Thursday night, August 24th, all day on Friday, August 25th, and Saturday morning, August 26th. Click here for more viewing information.

There is no other parenting conference that I would more quickly recommend to you because this weekend will feature keynotes, breakout sessions, and panel discussions led by many of the finest Christian leaders in the country including John Stonestreet, J.D. Greear, Jennifer Wilkin, Crawford Lorrits, Senator Ben Sasse, Sally Lloyd-Jones, Andrew Peterson, and Russell Moore.
