Growing in Grace As a Mom

Posted on

Recently I had the opportunity to interview my friend Katrin about what God has been teaching her lately in life, marriage and motherhood; specifically how she is bringing her family with her on her journey with God. Below are a couple of excerpts from our time together. You can read the full article here.

Katrin speaks about learning to trust God…
Submission wasn’t easy at first, especially for someone who liked to be in control. “It was hard at first because I was so used to allowing my fear to be the source for many of my decisions. After many experiences of choosing to trust God by saying no to the fear it became easier. Then I began to ask the Holy Spirit for other areas in my life that I was allowing fear to keep me from trusting God. It’s a process of obedience and trust in who He is for me.”

And about growing in grace as a mother….
Katrin shares, “When you are in the place of saying, ‘God, use whatever You want to in my life in order to teach me’, He will do that. And for me He used my children to teach me, and He’s still using them to teach me.” A lot of what she learns from God about relationships comes through her kids. “I’m with my kids all the time, so He can be teaching me all the time. There’s benefit for them and there’s benefit for me. It goes beyond what my understanding of being a mom is. God is blossoming it into something I never knew parenting could be.”
