Tain Gregory was present in his third grade classroom on the morning of December 14, 2012, the date of the Sandy Hook shootings.
As part of the healing process for the community after the tragedy Tain was asked “What’s the most important thing in the world to you?”
His mother expected an answer about a video game or Pokemon trading card. Tain thinks for a moment then answers with one word. “God.”
Until that moment, Tain’s mother had no idea how close to the surface Tain’s faith existed for him.
This is a fascinating look at the journey of two souls, both Tain’s and his mother’s, that began with Tain enrolling in Sunday School and led to a strong life of faith for both of them.
In This Child of Faith, Sophfronia and Tain share stories, experience and ideas to help parents get to the heart of the question: How do you help a child have faith—real faith that they own—in the challenging world we live in today?
