Do you think you have to be perfect to have a successful, strong family?

“Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity” (1 Timothy 4:12 NLT).
As parents, we stand in a position of authority in our homes. However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t make mistakes. We don’t stand in that place of leadership because we are perfect but because God established it that way.
My kids know I’m not perfect. I’ve made mistakes, but I’ve learned to repent in front of them. It’s very humbling and not easy to do at times, but I don’t want pride to stand between me and the blessing of God on my life and on my family. I want to keep growing in God’s grace and knowledge, so I can become more like Him every day. I also want my children to learn from my example and do the same (Luke 6:40).
Learn the five habits every unsuccessful family has and how to avoid those destructive behaviors with this month’s special offer.


You will never be a perfect parent, but you can be a great example to them even when you make mistakes.
