Key Quotes

  • 8:27 – “As I recollected and was thinking through that memory was so sweet to watch Jesus wearing my dad’s coat. Bearing this weight that I had borne for so long. Wearing that with me, bearing my burdens. And and through that moment, just giving me freedom to lay that at his feet and to not just feel like I have to wear my dad’s clothes, but now to be clothed in the goodness and grace of my heavenly Father, clothed in his humility and righteousness, and to walk in his ways. And so it’s just been really sweet to watch the Lord redeem those moments and bring us closer together.”
  • 12:17 – “There was a sin of passivity in both sides of our family. And it’s sin. It is the sin of the garden. And it’s it is more destructive than some of those explicit things because it’s a sin of the heart. And I’ve watched I’ve watched those chains not only break in my dad, but in my own life. And I think then that will have resounding impact, exponential impact on our family.
