Drawing on the wisdom of years of study and experience, educator, artist, and mother Amanda Millay Hughes offers a sustained reflection on adolescence, parenting, and the formation of faith. What does it mean to be a parent to an adolescent? How can we help them to draw on the wisdom of "elders," as Jesus did in the temple? How can we give our young people the tools they need to form a strong foundation of faith as they face the trials and dangers of modern life? Using Luke's account of Jesus' journey to Jerusalem at age twelve, Hughes weaves a rich tapestry with her own "lost and found" experience of raising three adolescents, and her years of work with young people. A must-read book for educators, parents, and anyone concerned about the faith formation of our next generation.
