The cultural messages bombarding her are based on faulty worldviews. Some emphasize “usefulness,” and question the value of a less than perfect child.

The worldview we choose carries real-life consequences.

How to Save Your Family: Cultivate A Biblical Worldview

Only one worldview is worthy of human beings. And only one worldview will bring us happiness: God’s worldview, rooted in the truths revealed in Scripture and in the logical principles that flow consistently from those truths.
