Author Gary Thomas believes that one of the reasons God gives us children is to shape our own character through the process of parenting. As parents, we learn to put others' needs before our own when caring for children who are completely dependent upon us. We become more servant-like, and thus, more Christ-like. How else might God be molding your character through parenting? Listen in as Thomas offers insights from his book Sacred Parenting: How Raising Children Shapes Our Souls.
