Dear Angry Mom, You Must Change!

Dear Angry Mom, You must change. You must change before your children learn from you that angry outbursts when you don’t get your way are acceptable. You must change before your children become fearful of you, and begin to base their value on your approval of them. You must change before your children become angry and resentful, and begin to act out of those sinful heart conditions. But, most importantly, you must change because your heavenly Father says so (James 1:19-20; Ecclesiastes 7:9; Colossians 3:8; Psalm 37:8-9; Proverbs 16:32; Ephesians 4:31-32).

The problem is that it is not specific enough and it results in the lack of change.

The truth is, my dear sister, you can bring glory to God in any condition He sovereignly ordains for you, no matter how unwelcome it may be in your view. This truth will never change. Your identity hasn’t changed, either. You may feel incomplete as you are now, but God says you are complete in Him.

Advice for Troubled Marriages

I love to meet with women in my biblical counseling ministry. Of course, most of them come to see me because they have a problem in their lives and are looking for biblical answers to it. Not a week goes by that I don’t have to tell someone something difficult. I don’t like to say it, and they don’t like to hear it but it must be said.
