Ep. 174: Raising Kids without the (Emotional) Baggage!
Helping Your Kids Lighten the Load
None of us want to imagine our kids carrying emotional baggage into adulthood, but…it happens. Wounds from people and experiences, their own choices (and sometimes their own parents) grow into baggage that can impact the rest of our kids’ lives…
Chris Sasser (“Sass”) has been in family ministry for a long time, and through meetings with young adults, he discovered the problem of emotional baggage which typically impacts young marriages, jobs, and the future generations of families. Chris has identified 8 specific “bags” that we can help our kids be aware of, and he offers ways we might lighten those loads. I love this conversation so much, and I think you will get so much out of all that Chris has to share. Find links to all that we talked about in show notes!
