The Formula

00:00

Description

We weren’t made to follow formulas. We were made to follow Jesus.

I’ve learned I can’t build my identity as a parent on the fragile choices of my kids. 

When I was a young mom, I was desperate for a formula I could plug my family into that would yield great kids.

I spent the first 5 years of motherhood convinced I was messing my kids up beyond repair. I’ve finally learned there is no perfect parenting formula.

We weren’t made to follow formulas. We were made to follow Jesus. This is true with every aspect of our lives. We were made to follow Jesus’ lead in our marriages, our jobs, our churches, our friendships, our everything.

I’ve learned to humbly acknowledge how much I don’t know about life and how much I need Jesus, in every way.
