Parents, this is the help you’ve been looking for. Founder and CEO of Foundation Worldview, Elizabeth Urbanowicz, joins Michael to highlight some of the greatest challenges parents face today and to offer practical resources to help them teach their children how to navigate our cultural context through a Christian worldview.
From the Episode:
“Biblically, we put our faith and trust in God because of who God is. Our kids need to understand that there are solid reasons for putting our faith in the God of the Bible.”
“Parents must be the first to talk to their kids about sex and sexuality, and God’s good design. Our children will be confronted with deviations from that good design from a very young age. If we wait to talk with our children about sex and sexuality until they encounter a deviation from God’s good design, the first conversation we have with them about this will be a negative one. Therefore, from that point on, they’re going to view sex and sexuality in a negative light; when sex, like any other creation of God, is a good gift. We want our children to understand that so that when they do encounter a deviation from God’s design, they already have the foundation to understand that and they don’t view sex, sexuality, and gender as things that are bad.”

About Elizabeth Urbanowicz
Elizabeth Urbanowicz is a follower of Jesus Christ who is passionate about equipping kids to understand the truth of the Christian worldview.
Elizabeth began her professional career as an elementary teacher in a Christian school, Several years into her teaching experience, Elizabeth realized that despite being raised in Christian homes, attending a Christian school, and being active in church, her students thought more like the culture than like Christ.
Elizabeth began searching for curricular materials that would equip her students to think critically, helping them discover that Christianity is the worldview that lines up with reality. After not finding any materials that met this need, she began creating à curriculum for her students.
Through the curricula, students were transformed from passive recipients of information to active evaluators of every message they receive. Parents and teachers alike noticed the impact these materials had on students’ media consumption, academic achievement, and everyday habits.
Elizabeth now works full-time on developing comparative worldview and apologetics resources for children. Her goal is to prepare the next generation to be lifelong critical thinkers and, most importantly, lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ.
