The August 28 article, authored by William Hageman, explores the need for parents to help children explore issues of spirituality even if the family is not part of an organized religion.
Powell, according to the article, says “parents need to make themselves available to talk about spirituality and religion at home.

The article refers to Powell’s expertise in this area as author of the recent book Sticky Faith: Everyday Ideas to Build Lasting Faith in Your Kids
