There is a sense in which every single one of our homes is a broken home, because we’ve all been marred by the brokenness that sin causes. Pastor Jimmy and Kristin Scroggins join me for the final episode in my Parenting Challenges series, as we explore a gospel based understanding of forgiveness, bitterness, and restoration. As we learn to be parents who model forgiveness in our own lives, we secure a platform to have crucial conversations with our children on the power of releasing others from their wrongs.   Jimmy and Kristin Scroggins have been married for twenty-six years and have eight children: James (Reilly), Daniel (Mary-Madison), Jeremiah, Isaac, Stephen, Anna Kate, Mary Claire, and Caleb. They have served at Family Church since Jimmy became the lead pastor in July 2008. Under Jimmy’s leadership, Family Church has grown to a network of neighborhood churches in South Florida. The Scroggins family is passionate about Family Church’s mission to build families by helping them discover and pursue God’s design.   Resources Mentioned: Full Circle Parenting Book: https://www.amazon.com/Full-Circle Parenting-Crucial-Conversations/dp/1087713447 www.fullcircleparentingbook.com The Three Circles App: https://lifeonmissionbook.com/conversation-guide https://gofamilychurch.org   Sponsor Affiliate: Perfectly Imperfect Parenting Event - https://www.perfectlyimperfect.org/a/2147484914/2FV3DP4z

Feelings are important, but they should not master our lives. As we live in a society that idolizes feelings, we need a way to train ourselves and our children to make healthy decisions not driven by feelings. Jay walks through an exercise that will help you reframe the story around your experiences. By doing so, you can remove feelings from the driver’s seat and make  healthier decisions.     Sponsor Affiliate: Become a Supporter of Let’s Parent on Purpose! https://www.letsparentonpurpose.com/support
