Do you have a teen who is struggling, floundering, or fighting with you constantly? If so, do you find yourself wondering how to help your teen see within themselves the hero of a truly great story?

In today’s episode, Rachel explores how to help your teen transition into a better story. She shares three takeaways from one of her all-time favorite books, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: How I Learned to Live a Better Story by Donald Miller:

  1. Trust the story that your teen wants to create.
  2. Create an opportunity for your child to live a better story.
  3. Improve your current story with your teen by embracing whimsy and adding in memorable scenes.

  1. I absolutely loved this episode and am feeling inspired to change our story and to help my boys to create the story they want for themselves! Thanks!

  2. Just listened this morning and loved it. I can’t wait to read the book. I love the concept of helping your teens think of the story they are creating. So good!
