As a parent, you face fears about raising your kids “right”. I was raised in a different culture from my parents and there’s a lot of leftover angst and issues there that I worry will get handed down in my parenting. I worry about developing a good mother-daughter relationship with my girls. I worry that they may not stay in the church. When you have kids, it feels like they’re the biggest thing that you can mess up. That being said, I find freedom in the truth that our kids do not ultimately belong to us — that their achievements, happiness, security are not the end all of our lives. It is so easy for the good things in our lives to become idols and my kids are something I have to give up regularly in order to turn over control of my life and to place my trust in God.

King’s Cross Church is a church of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA)
