When your children are little, you can wrap them in your arms. But when they grow up, sometimes all you can do is wrap them in your prayers.
In this Focus on the Family podcast (video above, audio below), Jodie Berndt shares how she learned to trust God with her adult children’s complicated lives.
Jodie has four grown children and is well-acquainted with the ongoing worries and passion parents have for their adult children. She encourages parents to recognize their limits of control & influence, and learn how to trust God with their adult child’s future. Jodie is quick to admit her own failures in this area, and how she’s tried to rely on God’s strength by using specific scriptures as templates for prayer.
Jodie shares stories about praying for her son’s anger issues, how a friend learned to love her cohabitating daughter rather than condemn her, and what it means to grow your own faith despite whatever lifestyle choices your adult kids make.
