The Formula
Radio Hostess: Lysa TerKeurst

I’ve learned I can’t build my identity as a parent on the fragile choices of my kids. Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries.

When I was a young mom, I was desperate for a formula I could plug my family into that would yield great kids.

I spent the first 5 years of motherhood convinced I was messing my kids up beyond repair. I now have kids ranging in ages from 23 to 12 and I’ve finally learned there is no perfect parenting formula.

We weren’t made to follow formulas. We were made to follow Jesus.
This is true with every aspect of our lives. We were made to follow Jesus’ lead in our marriages, our jobs, our churches, our friendships, our everything.

I’ve learned to humbly acknowledge how much I don’t know about life and readily admit how much I need Jesus. In every way.
