This week Brooke and Erin chatted with Jeannie Cunnion!

Jeannie Cunnion is the author of Parenting the Wholehearted Child and Mom Set Free, a frequent speaker at women’s conferences and parenting events around the country, and she holds a masters degree in social work. Her passion is encouraging women to live in the freedom for which Christ has set us free—a message her own heart needs to be reminded of daily. Jeannie and her husband Mike have four boys who range from teenager to toddler.

Show notes:

Brooke and Erin got on early to say hello, chat about the fall weather (and Erin’s lack of fall weather in Nebraska this week!), and pray for their time together.

Here are the times for the topics they discuss and some of the quotes you don’t want to miss:

5 minutes in they welcome Jeannie Cunnion and she tells us about her books and four boys.

10 minutes: Jeannie answers what led her to write this book.

13 minutes: They talk about the pressures on moms. Are they worse now?

16 minutes: Jeannie says, “Ultimately it’s the Holy Spirit’s heart work—not a parent’s hard work—that produces the fruit of the Spirit in our children’s lives.”

22 minutes: Brooke asks if we let God be enough when we aren’t enough.

25 minutes: Jeannie reminds us dependence on Him “doesn’t make us failures, it makes us free.”

26 minutes: Erin asks about Jeannie’s manifesto and they talk about what God frees us from (Galatians 5:1). You can getJeannie’s manifesto from her website,

32 minutes: Brooke shares what she tells her boys every night at bed time.

33 minutes: Jeannie says, “My children don’t need me to be the perfection of Christ. They need to see me in pursuit of Christ.”
