Dr Nana Talks Faith

Love like a Nana. Think like a scholar. 


Portrait of Tricia Scribner

Are you a Christian who longs to speak truth of Jesus into your grandchildren’s lives but haven’t a clue what to say?  Understandable. The world in which we grew up has morphed into something unrecognizable. We wish we knew more and had the confidence to  talk to them about what matters most.

Meet “Dr Nana.”

Hi, I’m Dr. Tricia Scribner, “Nana” to ten grandkids. After I finished my seminary PhD, my grandson, “D,” asked, “So, do we call you Dr. Nana now?” Sounds good to me! 

After 15 years of studying evidences for the truth of Christianity, comparing different religions, and digging into the logic, history, science, and philosophy supporting our beliefs about ultimate reality, I found my trust in Jesus Christ was well placed! 

Now, I want to share with you the truths and tools I learned to help you more confidently talk with your grandkids, teen and adult kids, and other loved ones about the most challenging and most important questions of life. 

You’ll learn how to answer questions like:

  • How could a good God exist with so much evil in the world?
  • Is truth relative?
  • Shouldn’t you just find a religion that works for you?
  • Is gender a matter of what you feel inside?
  • Are the core beliefs of all religions basically the same?
  • Is the Christian gospel a message of social justice?
  • How can the Bible’s New Testament be true when there are so many errors?
  • Who is Jesus and why should I care?
  • Does science show everything came into existence by chance?

The truth is, Christianity makes the most sense of . . .  everything!
