Parenthood doesn’t come with an instruction manual. So as you and I try to write our own job description, you might say your job is to raise responsible, independent adults. Or it’s to raise godly children who love Jesus with all of their hearts. Or maybe it’s to raise kids who make good choices and have strong character. But as you work so hard to achieve those goals in your home, you just become stressed and feel like a failure as a parent. Today’s guest, Crystal Paine, is here to offer a whole new way of looking at our life as moms and dads. She shares her own parenting crisis that began a journey of transformation to understand Why moms and dads carry so much stress, doubt, and discouragement in parenting What your child needs most from you in their hardest moments Why learning to “live as loved” changes everything The lies you believe about yourself as a parent The difference between rules-based and relationship-based parenting How to find freedom in letting go of your kids   Crystal Paine is the founder of host of “The Crystal Paine Show” podcast, New York Times bestselling author of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, and author of Money-Making Mom. She lives with her husband and kids in the Nashville, Tennessee area, where she is actively involved in her local church. Her biggest passions are helping women understand how the Gospel can radically transform their lives, raising awareness for foster care, going on adventures with her family (locally, domestically, and internationally), finding great deals at the grocery store, heartfelt conversations, and trying to read too many books at one time! In Crystal’s latest book, Love-Centered Parenting, she shares her own parenting stories—the good, the bad, and the ugly—what she’s learned, and how she’s shifted into a love-centered model of raising her children. And because you can’t give what you don’t have, she first had to let God reparent her, relearning to parent from the inside out.

Over the years, the Teigens have lived in five states as they made their way to West Michigan. Serving as foster parents, marriage mentors, small-group leaders, and authors, they are passionate about helping couples and moms and dads experience the power of God in their families.
