As parents, our goal is to raise adults emotionally and spiritually mature adults who can navigate challenges with integrity and faith and have learned to rely on and surrender to Christ. We know, intellectually, our children must reach a place of independence, but our hearts might struggle to let go.

In this episode, Wholly Loved’s Shellie Arnold and Jennifer Slattery discuss some of the fears, challenges, and confusion parents face in this journey of releasing and truths that can help us move forward with courage and confidence.
