Daily Grace

May 9, 2023

In this episode, Krystal had the pleasure of chatting with Katie Faris about unmet expectations and challenges we face in motherhood. Through the ups and downs, Katie shares how her faith in God sustained her in seasons when life didn’t turn out how she had hoped. Whether you are a mom or have close friends who are moms, this conversation will remind you of the hope we have in Christ alone. We do not cling to our roles as mothers—we cling to the Lord. We pray this conversation is an encouragement for you to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus. Remember His faithfulness, His care, and His promises.
