Parenting Beyond Your Capacity: Chapter 2 part 2

I left you hanging a few weeks ago. Now I’m back to reviewing the book after I finally found it in the bottom of the diaper bag.  So, without further delay, part 2….(if you need a reminder of part 1, it’s right here.)

God’s Story.

Yep, we don’t have perfect families and God doesn’t expect us to have perfect families.  We can’t because we’re not perfect.  God wants to show up and change us and reveal Himself.  They talk about the idea of God’s story and how He is a God of “restoration and redemption.”  I love those 2 words!

There’s so much more, but I don’t want to give away the book.  I’ll leave you with a quote from the book.  “Don’t focus on the picture.  Focus instead on the bigger story God desires to illustrate through you.” (p.45)
