  1. I am familiar with the teaching of the Doctors Lane and was interested in their interview. Something odd happened while I was listening.

    I do not have any biological children,  but I was parented. I saw many comparisons to the way I was parented and their recommendations. I was in the struggling family, inflexible, my way or the highway, no conversations about things that were confusing to me. I understand how that set me on a difficult course with some serious issues as I came into adulthood. What I did not expect was the voice of Jesus reassuring me that these are the things He wants to do for me to redirect and heal those issues. I got it. It was a revelation of the intimacy He wants to provide to me now. Pray and listen for the answer. Have the freedom to become a good decision maker by making mistakes. I loved it when David said, “Is that the outcome you were hoping for from the decision you made?” Have a Jesus chair to know that His favorite place is right with you. Get familiar with your hearts wishes and dreams. Use the guidance of Jesus to pursue those dreams. Live a life of joy, in Him. Show your children that this is the way.

    I’m glad that the podcast brought out these ideas to Mom’s praying for those precious children. It was surprising to me that the message is also for us as adults to be healed and restored when we allow Jesus to parent us.

    Thank you for the podcast!
