Some things should never be discussed at a dinner party; these include religion, politics, and whether mothers should work outside the home. But since Boundless is no dinner party, we're going to kick the proverbial hornet's nest. All of the women on our panel are working moms: some by choice, some not. But what they have in common is a desire to keep family first and honor God in the process. How and why they do it is an important discussion around an issue that's not going away anytime soon.

Why aren't my prayers answered? Why does God allow His children to make bad decisions? Why can't Christians agree on doctrine? What if I never get married?

Alex is an internationally-known apologist, speaker and culture expert. His newest book, The 21 Toughest Questions Your Kids Will Ask About Christianity, is a great resource for parents and non-parents. In this segment, Lisa goes after him with some perplexing questions applicable to young adults.
