You scroll through your social media feed and feel layers of shame and insecurity building in your heart. Other parents’ kids seem confident and successful, while yours are taking one step forward and two steps back. Other couples create romance and fun every day, while you and your spouse are stuck in a rut and feel miles apart. The burden of shame steals the joy from your home. And, you see the sickness of perfectionism infecting your kids as well.

Today’s guests, Dave and Ann Wilson, offer a powerful word of encouragement to break the cycle of shame in our families. They help us to understand

  • Why we feel pressured to become perfect parents and sustain an ideal marriage
  • Why Dave and Ann are so open and authentic about their own mistakes and struggles
  • How to find freedom from the guilt you carry as a spouse or parent
  • How to raise kids who feel loved and accepted as they are
  • How God can use our parenting to expose our brokenness and bring healing
  • The power of partnering with your spouse to give your kids what they need
