Helpful Insights from the Episode

You can know things in your head but living those things out is a whole other thing.

 

Dear God,

Help me to trust that you have already covered these things that I’m trying to control.

 

Wild Things, David Thomas book

I cannot give my kids grace if I am not receiving the grace God has given me. Jeannie Cunnion

. . . . . . . . . .

Part of the beauty of our freedom in Christ is it gives our kids permission to seek forgiveness as well.

When I’m not living in grace it’s very evident in my parenting. I come down on them rather than coming alongside them.

God’s grace doesn’t just remind us of His love, it transforms us.

Your weakness is a beautiful invitation to say to your kids, “There is only One who will never let you down . . . Jesus.” Jeannie Cunnion

Green - Line

. . . . . . . . . .

The only thing we should want our kids to emulate in us is our love for Jesus and our willingness to be honest about how much we need Him.

These moments are designed to deepen your dependence on God. You cannot do this without the Holy Spirit. Jeannie Cunnion

Guiding Principles for Parenting:

I am significant but God is sovereign.

Ephesians 1:11

. . . . . . . . . .

I can get it all right or I can get it all wrong today. But God is still sovereign over my kids’ lives. Jeannie Cunnion

Look for God’s activity in your kids’ lives and let that encourage you to trust God is at work.

In This House We Will Giggle – Courtney DeFeo

. . . . . . . . . .

When we lay down the things He didn’t ask us to carry, we can parent with joy.

When we want to have control over the outcomes, it means we think we can do a better job than Him.

Becoming the mom I long to be is utterly dependent on me being in pursuit of Christ. Jeannie Cunnion

Product - Brand

. . . . . . . . . .

When I am abiding in Him, I am a different mom. I can be very productive when I’m not abiding but I’m not very fruitful.

Our kids don’t need us to be the perfection of Christ, they need to see us being in pursuit of Christ.

We don’t become better moms by trying harder and harder, we become better moms by getting to know God better and better.

He doesn’t ask us to try harder, He just makes us new.
