Do you feel like your life is on hold as you raise small children? Might you spend too much time idolizing the wrong things? Find yourself fixating on a clean house? Maybe pointing out imperfections in others? You will never want this episode to end! Ruth shares with us what she has ascertained as a parent to SIX boys over the past 18 years. We talk: resolving conflict, the actual purpose, and the importance of memorizing scripture, why your job is so important, and an overall reminder of where our eyes should be as we train our young ones.

Ruth Chou Simons is an entrepreneur, speaker, and bestselling author of Beholding and Becoming and GraceLaced. She shares her journey of God’s grace intersecting daily life with word and paintbrush through an online shop at GraceLaced.com and her Instagram community of more than a hundred thousand. Ruth and her husband, Troy, are grateful parents to six boys—their greatest adventure.

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:
  • social distancing with 7 guys in the house

  • normalizing conflict resolution

  • the power of preaching to ourselves to control our inner narrative

  • applying the gospel to your day-to-day life

  • embracing your parenting years as an opportunity to grow

  • the biblical foundations for a healthy family

  • taking the pressure off family devotions

  • self-check - are we praying about it more than we’re complaining about it?
