What do you do when your son wanders away?
Single parenting, racial biases, boys who wander away, and God’s faithfulness through it all. These are just a few of the topics I discuss with our guest on the show today.
WELCOME TO EPISODE 42 OF REDEEMING THE CHAOS.
I’m your host, Laurie Christine. This is the podcast for moms who may feel a bit frazzled and overwhelmed by the responsibility of raising boys. If you want your boys to grow up to be strong, courageous young men who are fully committed to following Jesus, this show is for you.
I know that I can’t do this alone. I desperately need God to give me strength every step of this journey.
But guess what… I also need YOU.
I’d love for you to join me on this wild, wonderful, chaotic adventure of raising courageous boys and connecting their hearts to Christ.
We have a special guest on the show today. Sharon Norris Elliott is a mom of two adult boys. She also holds the titles of author, speaker, Bible teacher, editor, consultant, licensed minister and literary agent. Her passion is challenging women to “live significantly.” Her 13th book and 3rd parenting book, Didn’t See That Coming: When How They’re Living’s Not How You Raised Them is due to launch from Elk Lake Publishers in early 2022.
