Don’t let the title of this episode fool you. Yes, Jeannie Cunnion’s message is helping moms find relief from the pressure to get it all right (i.e. be perfect). But this conversation is for all parents. If you need to experience the grace and gentleness of Jesus today as a mom or dad, this episode is for you. Jeannie’s words are salve to the exhausted parent. You don’t need to listen long before you realize Jeannie really “wrestles with the wild grace of God.”
We had the privilege of meeting Jeannie through this episode. Since then, her words have penetrated our home and how we show Jesus to our kids. Jeannie is a wife and mom of four fun boys. Her unique message of God’s grace is so refreshing.
In Jeannie’s words, “I spent the first many years of parenting believing that I had to be a perfect example for my kids to follow and worrying that their entire futures were riding on my ability to perfectly orchestrate their lives. My goal was to make very few mistakes and have very little regret. You can probably guess how that turned out. The shame I felt from the mistakes I made was real. And because I wasn’t accepting God’s grace for me in all of my weaknesses and brokenness, I struggled to give grace to my kids in their weaknesses and brokenness.”
But Jesus. Yes, but Jesus. This conversation helps all of us wrestle with and apply the grace of Jesus in our homes.
