“This week's love offering is to live your life on mission. What we do on earth matters for all of eternity. We love God and love people. Your life will intersect with someone’s today by a divine plan of God. Use that moment and don't lose it.”

Love-Centered Parenting With Crystal Paine
Do you worry that you're messing up your kids? Do you get stressed when you think about their futures? New York Times bestselling author Crystal Paine knows how you feel. A mom of four, Crystal has struggled with anxiety over parenting. She wanted to parent with grace, instead of a system of rules where kids are expected to do all the right things. She wanted to be a safe place for her children, and she definitely didn't want to be remembered as the sort of mom who yelled, wounded her kids with words, or worse, cared more about her reputation than her kids' hearts.
In this episode, Crystal shares the life-changing lessons that God has been teaching her about raising kids with love and grace.
In this episode we discuss:
▫️The root of why we often feel so frustrated and irritated with our kids
▫️How to keep going when you want to give up
▫️How to stop parenting for your own approval and reputation
▫️The four most important choices you can make as a parent
▫️Help you get your kids to talk to you
At a time when parenting is more complicated than ever, this is the message that will bring you freedom, hope, and healing.
This week’s love offering is to “let God’s love pour through us to other people. I don’t have anything to give unless I’m filling myself up with Him.”
“Cram so much truth in that there is no space for lies. Then when someone bumps into you, God’s love spills out.”
