On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Lori Wildenberg about how life can get a little messy. Lori, a mom of four and Mimi to one, is passionate about helping families build connections that last a lifetime. She’s co-founder of 1 Corinthians 13 Parenting ministry, lead mentor mom with the Moms Together Facebook Community, national speaker, and parent coach. The Messy Life of Parenting is Lori’s fifth parenting book.
“If we had it altogether and did everything perfectly and our kids did everything perfectly, how would our little ones learn empathy for anyone?,” Lori says. “Compassion would never be developed in a person who never experiences a little struggle or a little suffering. Our trials in our life help us develop a godly and a loving character toward other people.”
