LISTEN TO EPISODE 23
“The role of a Christian parent is to connect to the heart of their child in such a way that it makes it easier for that child to ultimately connect to the heart of God.” —Dr. Tim Kimmel
Parents this one’s for you! (Or for any of you who have ever wanted to know more about God’s heart for us as our Father!) So often the legacy parents strive to leave for their children misses the mark of what God has actually called parents to. Dr. Tim Kimmel helps parents understand the grace God has for them so they can speak grace fluently in their homes, and he joins us in this episode to talk about leaving a legacy of grace.

LIVING IN THE LOOP
Purity is not a state of being, but a state of becoming P-U-R-E. Coming out of this episode here are ways you can…
PRAY | Pray for God’s grace to penetrate your own heart and ooze out of your words and actions.
UNDERSTAND | The heart of God our Father is filled with grace for His children.
RESOLVE | Let God’s truth guide you. Let God’s grace temper you.
ENGAGE | Parents, recognize that you are the most influential persons in you child’s life. For those of you who aren’t parents, think of how you can be a gracious support to the parents and children you know.
