Friends have asked if I will tell my kids of my sins.

It's easy to forget that we serve a human God. He's a miracle worker in hopeless situations. Takes dead things and makes them alive. Redeems things that had no value and were despised.

He works in the broken places.

Which brings me back to telling our children of our mistakes. Our flaws. And the answer is yes.

When the time is right, I don't hide my sin from my children. On the contrary, I highlight it and make it clear that we are all messed up. Mommies, daddies, grandparents, friends, children...we are all on the same playing field as far as our need for the cross.

Our need for a savior is an intricate part of every day. Not just lip service or Sundays or story time.

All of life.
